An Introduction to Mechanics
by Daniel Kleppner, Robert Kolenkow
Introduction to Liquid Crystals
by Peter J. Collings, Michael Hird
Introduction to the Basic Concepts of Modern Physics
by Carlo Maria Becchi, Massimo D’Elia
The first part of the book is devoted to special relativity, with a particular focus on space-time relativity and relativistic kinematics. The second part deals with Schrödinger’s formulation of quantum mechanics. The presentation concerns mainly one-dimensional problems, but some three-dimensional examples are discussed in detail. The third part addresses the application of Gibbs’ statistical methods to quantum systems and in particular to Bose and Fermi gases.
