This text employs vector methods to explore the classical theory of curves and surfaces. Topics include basic theory of tensor algebra, tensor calculus, calculus of differential forms, and elements of Riemannian...

Fluent description of the development of both the integral and differential calculus — its early beginnings in antiquity, medieval contributions, and a consideration of Newton and Leibniz.

This classic text, written by a distinguished mathematician and teacher, focuses on a fundamental theory of geometry. Topics include all types of Pythagorean triangles.

Written by a Nobel Laureate, this classic treatise on molecular dynamics discusses the experimental studies that provided some of the first concrete evidence for the existence of molecules. 1910 edition.

Undergraduate-level text examines waves in air and in three dimensions, interference patterns and diffraction, and acoustic impedance, as illustrated in the behavior of horns. 1951 edition.

Volume III examines the perceptions of vision: eye movements; the monocular field of vision; direction of vision; perception of depth; binocular vision; and many other highly important topics.

This concise introduction to mechanics by a renowned scientist emphasizes fundamental physical principles rather than mathematics or applications. Hundreds of fully worked examples and exercises illuminate the...

Suitable for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this text explores exact methods used in the theory of figures of equilibrium and examines problems concerning figures of celestial bodies. 1958...

Maxwell made numerous contributions to science, but his greatest work was devoted to electricity. Here, he describes experiments proving that the electric charge can be measured. 1888 edition.

Concise and practical, this text sketches the mathematical background essential to understanding relativity theory. Each subject is illustrated with diagrams, formulas, and examples, plus exercises and solutions....

This text explores calculus from the engineering viewpoint: differential, integral, and time calculus; equations of motion and their solution; complex variables, algebra, and functions; complex and operational...

Accessible classic of gravitation theory and celestial mechanics explains methods used by physicists in studying celestial phenomena, including perturbed motion, satellite technology, planetary rotation, and...

This concise study of random processes offers graduate students and research physicists a survey encompassing both relationship of Brownian movement with statistical mechanics and problem of irreversible processes....

Direct approach covers electrostatics of point charges, distributions of charge, conductors and dielectrics, currents and circuits, Lorentz force and magnetic field, magnetic media, Maxwell equations, more....

Aimed at graduate-level students, this survey concentrates on conduction in solids, mainly metals. It supplies a highly readable history of thermoelectricity and includes an impressive amount of experimental...

Two of the most significant publications in the history of rocketry and jet propulsion: "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and "Liquid Propellant Rocket Development" (1936). 96 black-and-white illustrations....

This text introduces students in physics and chemistry to the three main uses of group theory in quantum mechanics. Quantum theory prerequisite; matrix algebra featured in appendix. 1960 edition.

Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this text covers general theorems, conservation equations, waves, shocks, and nonisentropic flows, with emphasis on the basics, both conceptual and...

The distinguished English mathematician, philosopher presents an alternative rendering of the theory of relativity, conceived long after Einstein's original groundbreaking papers; appropriate for upper-level...

Concise introduction by a pioneer in the investigation of gravitational waves explains the related Riemannian geometry and tensor calculus, conservation laws, and classic experiments. 1961 edition.
