Textbook Series in Physical Sciences


About the Series

This textbook series offers pedagogical resources for the physical sciences. It publishes high-quality, high-impact texts to improve understanding of fundamental and cutting edge topics, as well as to facilitate instruction. The authors are encouraged to incorporate numerous problems and worked examples, as well as making available solutions manuals for undergraduate and graduate level course adoptions. The format makes these texts useful as professional self-study and refresher guides as well. Subject areas covered in this series include condensed matter physics, quantum sciences, atomic, molecular, and plasma physics, energy science, nanoscience, spectroscopy, mathematical physics, geophysics, environmental physics, and so on, in terms of both theory and experiment.

New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher (Carolina Antunes, Physics Editor:[email protected]) to discuss new title ideas.
