Theoretical Concepts in Physics by Malcolm S. Longair
Modern theoretical physics attempts to unify theories and explain phenomena in further attempts to understand the Universefrom the cosmological to the elementary particle scale. The pillars of modern physicsand perhaps the most revolutionary theories in the history of physkcs, have been relativity theory and quantum mechanics. Stefano added it May 16, A 4,year History illustrated ed. Highlights include three new chapters on Newton’s laws one on ancient astronomy up to the time of Galileo, one on Galileo, and one on Newton ; a new chapter on dimensional methods, chaos and self-organized criticality; and a new chapter on the technology of cosmology.
