High-power gas lasers, 1975: Lectures given at a summer school organized by the International College of Applied Physics, on the physics and technology
A.P. French, Edwin F. Taylor
November 30, 1979
Provides comprehensive coverage of all the fundamentals of quantum physics. Full mathematical treatments are given. Uses examples from different areas of physics to demonstrate how theories work in practice. Text derived from lectures delivered at Massachusetts Institute of Technology....

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...

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...

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

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,...
J. Robert Schrieffer
January 22, 1971
Theory of Superconductivity is considered one of the best treatment of the field. This monograph, by Nobel Prize-winning physicist J. Robert Schrieffer, has been reprinted because of its enduring value as an introduction to the theory of superconductivity. The fundamentals of the theory of...

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...
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....
