### Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory: The Theoretical Minimum

**The third volume in the bestselling physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory**

Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths.

### The Cosmic Code: Quantum Physics as the Language of Nature

"

*The Cosmic Code*can be read by anyone. I heartily recommend it!" —*The**New York Times Book Review*

"A reliable guide for the nonmathematical reader across the highest ridges of physical theory. Pagels is unfailingly lighthearted and confident." —*Scientific American*

"A sound, clear, vital work that deserves the attention of anyone who takes an interest in the relationship between material reality and the human mind." —*Science 82*

This is one of the most important books on quantum mechanics ever written for general readers. Heinz Pagels, an eminent physicist and science writer, discusses and explains the core concepts of physics without resorting to complicated mathematics. The two-part treatment outlines the history of quantum physics and addresses complex subjects such as Bell's theorem and elementary particle physics, drawing upon the work of Bohr, Gell-Mann, and others. Anecdotes from the personal documents of Einstein, Oppenheimer, Bohr, and Planck offer intimate glimpses of the scientists whose work forever changed the world.## Relativity: The Special and the General Theory baixar livros

### The Special Theory of Relativity: A Mathematical Approach (English Edition)

The book expounds the major topics in the special theory of relativity. It provides a detailed examination of the mathematical foundation of the special theory of relativity, relativistic mass, relativistic mechanics and relativistic electrodynamics. As well as covariant formulation of relativistic mechanics and electrodynamics, the book discusses the relativistic effect on photons. Using a mathematical approach, the text offers graduate students a clear, concise view of the special theory of relativity. Organized into 14 chapters and two appendices, the content is presented in a logical order, and every topic has been dealt with in a simple and lucid manner. To aid understanding of the subject, the book provides numerous relevant worked examples in every chapter. The book’s mathematical approach helps students in their independent study and motivates them to research the topic further.

### Electrodynamics: An Intensive Course

This book is devoted to the fundamentals of classical electrodynamics, one of the most beautiful and productive theories in physics. A general survey on the applicability of physical theories shows that only few theories can be compared to electrodynamics. Essentially, all electric and electronic devices used around the world are based on the theory of electromagnetism.

It was Maxwell who created, for the first time, a unified description of the electric and magnetic phenomena in his electromagnetic field theory. Remarkably, Maxwell’s theory contained in itself also the relativistic invariance of the special relativity, a fact which was discovered only a few decades later.

The present book is an outcome of the authors’ teaching experience over many years in different countries and for different students studying diverse fields of physics. The book is intended for students at the level of undergraduate and graduate studies in physics, astronomy, engineering, applied mathematics and for researchers working in related subjects.We hope that the reader will not only acquire knowledge, but will also grasp the beauty of theoretical physics. A set of about 130 solved and proposed problems shall help to attain this aim.

### The Mathematical Theory of Special and General Relativity

This book presents the basic theory of relativity in a rational and simplest possible manner, with the emphasis on the Principle of Simplicity in developing the theory. The presentation is in the style of a discussion and is generally devoid of unproven and speculative assertions. In rare cases where speculative ideas are mentioned, they are clearly stated to be such. Test results verifying all of the theoretical results are given and discussed. This work is intended to serve as a resource and reference book for educational purposes. In Parts I and II the principal results of special and general relativity are derived rigorously, discussing the contributions of Einstein, as well as Lorentz, Poincare, Minkowski, Hilbert, Eddington and others, with historical notes touching upon the various aspects of relativity. Multiple derivations are given particularly of the mass-energy relation, the gravitational field equation, and the relativistic orbit of planets. The Schwarzschild metric and its consequences leading to the formation of black holes are treated in detail. The historical problems of physical dilation of time and Einstein's clock paradox are treated in an entirely new manner based upon general relativity. The author has also presented Einstein's gravitational radiation theory, and its application by Peters and Mathews to radiation from orbiting bodies, followed by the study of radiation from a certain binary pulsar by Weisberg and Taylor. These difficult topics are treated without taking shortcuts as is commonly done in textbooks, but in a manner that senior students can understand. A fresh look is taken of Weyl's unification of gravitational and electromagnetic field theories, again a difficult topic avoided by textbooks. The final chapter of Part II is on the elements of field cosmology. Aspects involving particle physics are not covered because they cannot be treated even cursorily in a book of this size dealing primarily with fields; only books specializing in cosmology can do justice to that vast subject. Part III is devoted entirely to tensor calculus, and its application to the geometries of Riemann and Weyl; these are the essential tools of Einstein's and Weyl's theories treated in Part II. Finally, four appendices are provided on certain mathematical topics. Thus the book is self-contained. The book contains 11 figures, an extensive bibliography and an index.

### Quantum Theory (Dover Books on Physics) (English Edition)

This superb text by David Bohm, formerly Princeton University and Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck College, University of London, provides a formulation of the quantum theory in terms of qualitative and imaginative concepts that have evolved outside and beyond classical theory. Although it presents the main ideas of quantum theory essentially in nonmathematical terms, it follows these with a broad range of specific applications that are worked out in considerable mathematical detail.

Addressed primarily to advanced undergraduate students, the text begins with a study of the physical formulation of the quantum theory, from its origin and early development through an analysis of wave vs. particle properties of matter. In Part II, Professor Bohm addresses the mathematical formulation of the quantum theory, examining wave functions, operators, Schrödinger's equation, fluctuations, correlations, and eigenfunctions.

Part III takes up applications to simple systems and further extensions of quantum theory formulation, including matrix formulation and spin and angular momentum. Parts IV and V explore the methods of approximate solution of Schrödinger's equation and the theory of scattering. In Part VI, the process of measurement is examined along with the relationship between quantum and classical concepts.

Throughout the text, Professor Bohm places strong emphasis on showing how the quantum theory can be developed in a natural way, starting from the previously existing classical theory and going step by step through the experimental facts and theoretical lines of reasoning which led to replacement of the classical theory by the quantum theory.
