Classical And Relativistic Mechanics Hardback
This book provides a calculus-based perspective on classical mechanics and the theory of relativity.
Unlike most conventional textbooks, the discussion on theory is pared down to a minimum in favor of detailed, guided solutions of problems illustrating salient points, subtleties and principles.
By working through the 900 carefully selected problems, the serious learner will hence be stimulated, challenged and enlightened.
Great emphasis is placed on the pedagogical value of solving problems in a number of ways, on the careful and detailed analysis of problems, on dimensional considerations, and on basic principles underlying every topic treated.The book is aimed at first-year undergraduate students in physics and engineering.
Advanced Placement students in high schools will also find this book rewarding and challenging.
Instructors too will be able to recharge their batteries and refresh their reservoir of problems for recitation classes, or delve into it for their own amusement and edification.
