Lectures On Quantum Mechanics

1st Edition

Gordon Baym
January 22, 1974

These lecture notes comprise a three-semester graduate course in quantum mechanics at the University of Illinois. There are a number of texts which present the basic topics very well; but since a fair quantity of the material discussed in my course was not available to the students in elementary...

Laser Physics

1st Edition

Murray, Iii Sargent, Iii Sargent, Marlan O. Scully, Willis E., Jr. Lamb
January 01, 1974

This book treats the interaction of radiation with matter, particular attention being paid to the laser. Knowledge is assumed of the usual half-year introduction of quantum mechanics found in undergraduate physics curricula. The material can be covered in two semesters, or, alternatively, the first...

Basic Principles Of Plasma Physics: A Statistical Approach

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
January 22, 1973

The book describes a statistical approach to the basics of plasma physics....

Lectures On Phase Transitions And The Renormalization Group

1st Edition

Nigel Goldenfeld
June 30, 1972

Covering the elementary aspects of the physics of phases transitions and the renormalization group, this popular book is widely used both for core graduate statistical mechanics courses as well as for more specialized courses. Emphasizing understanding and clarity rather than technical manipulation...

Photon-hadron Interactions

1st Edition

Richard P. Feynman
January 01, 1972

In these classic lectures, Feynman analyses the theoretical questions related to electron and photon interactions at high energies. These lectures are based on a special topics course taught by Feynman at Caltech in 1971 and 1972. The material is dealt with on an advanced level and includes...

Vibrations and Waves

1st Edition

A.P. French
September 30, 1971

The M.I.T. Introductory Physics Series is the result of a program of careful study, planning, and development that began in 1960. The Education Research Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (formerly the Science Teaching Center) was established to study the process of instruction,...

Theory Of Superconductivity

1st Edition

J. Robert Schrieffer
January 22, 1971


Quantum Electrodynamics

1st Edition

Richard P. Feynman
January 01, 1971

This text material constitutes notes on the third of a three-semester course in quantum mechanics given at the California Institute of Technology in 1953, presenting the main results and calculational procedures of quantum electrodynamics....

Experiments In Physical Optics

1st Edition

M. Francon, N. Krauzman, J.P. Mathieu, M. May
January 01, 1970

Experiments in physical optics for undergraduate and graduate classes. Provides the theoretical basis of each experiment and describes the apparatus required and necessary adjustments. Most of the experiments require only lenses, prisms, mirrors, and polarizers, and can be projected on a lecture...

Special Relativity

1st Edition

A.P. French
September 30, 1968

The book opens with a description of the smooth transition from Newtonian to Einsteinian behaviour from electrons as their energy is progressively increased, and this leads directly to the relativistic expressions for mass, momentum and energy of a particle....
