Clear, nontechnical treatment makes principles of relativity more accessible than ever. The author gradually introduces Einstein's ideas in terms of familiar concepts from high school-level geometry. More than...

Excellent primer and classic treatment employs simple experiments to establish a practical basis for the existence and function of surface tension and energy minimization. 83 illustrations. 1911 edition.

Lively and authoritative, this survey by a renowned physicist explains the formation of the galaxies and defines the concept of an ever-expanding universe in simple terms. 1961 edition. 40 figures.

Classic in the philosophy of science offers a fascinating analysis of the works of Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Descartes, Hobbes, Gilbert, Boyle, and Newton, tracing their influence on contemporary scientific...

Highly readable 1872 study by the great naturalist examines how people and animals display fear, anger, and pleasure. Abounding in anecdotes and quotations, it continues to inspire contemporary research. 21...

A fascinating compendium of early-20th-century mechanical devices, this expansive work ranges from basic levers to complex machinery. More than 1,800 engravings include simple illustrations and detailed cross-sections....

This engrossing visual narrative profiles hundreds of mechanical devices. Nearly 1,000 detailed illustrations — including steam-powered appliances, spring-powered devices, and other machinery — are accompanied...

This self-contained treatment covers approximation of irrationals by rationals, product of linear forms, multiples of an irrational number, approximation of complex numbers, and product of complex linear forms....

For upper-level undergraduates and graduate students: an introduction to the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, emphasizing aspects essential to an understanding of solid-state theory. Numerous problems (and...

This 1868 collection features simplified illustrations of the mechanisms used in hydraulics, steam engines, pneumatics, presses, horologes, and other machines. Captioned drawings depict the movements of each...

Thorough coverage of theory and applications of optics examines optical glass, light, elements of mirrors, prisms and lenses, construction of instruments, maintenance and more. Extensive appendixes include glossary,...

Offering undergraduates a solid mathematical background (and functioning equally well for independent study), this rewarding, beautifully illustrated text covers geometry and matrices, vector algebra, analytic...

Effective procedures for mathematical tasks in many fields: resolving linear independence, finding null spaces and factors of matrices; differentiating vectors and matrices by chain rule, many more. Techniques...

Mathematical games, probability, the question of infinity, topology, how the laws of algebra work, problems of irrational numbers, and more. 42 figures.

Speeches and essays in accessible, everyday language profile influential physicists such as Niels Bohr and Isaac Newton. They also explore areas of physics to which the author made major contributions.

Written by a Nobel Prize physicist and his colleague, this compelling book uses familiar objects (trains, rulers, clocks) to illuminate the more subtle aspects of relativity. 23 illustrations. 1959 edition.

From the first great experimental scientist: the classic text, first published in Latin in 1600. Summarizes then-current knowledge of magnetism and electricity, offering insights into the origins of modern science....
