Download From Aristotle to Schrödinger: The Curiosity of Physics by Antonis Modinos PDF

By Antonis Modinos

From Aristotle to Schrödinger: The interest of Physics deals a singular creation to the themes mostly encountered within the first years of an undergraduate physics direction, together with classical mechanics, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, electromagnetism, relativity, quantum mechanics, atomic and molecular physics, and astrophysics. The publication provides physics because it advanced traditionally; it covers in huge intensity the advance of the topic from historic Greece to the current day. notwithstanding the emphasis is at the observations, experiments, theories, and purposes of physics, there are also brief sections at the existence and instances of the most protagonists of physics.

This ebook grew out of the author's lengthy adventure in giving undergraduate and graduate classes in classical physics and in quantum mechanics and its trouble-free purposes. even if intended basically for the coed and instructor of physics, will probably be of curiosity to different scientists and to historians of technology, and to those that desire to be aware of anything approximately physics, the way it all started, and the way it constructed to its modern-day beauty and class.
