9780521275538: Theoretical Concepts in Physics: An Alternative View of Theoretical Reasoning in Physics for Final-Year Undergraduates

In this highly individual, and truly novel, approach to theoretical reasoning in physics, the author has provided a course that illuminates the subject from the standpoint of real physics as practised by research scientists. Professor Longair gives the basic insights, attitudes, and techniques that are the tools of the professional physicist, in a manner that conveys the intellectual excitement and beauty of the subject. The book is intended to be a supplement to more traditional courses for physics undergraduates, and the author assumes that his readers already have some knowledge of the main branches of physics. As the story unfolds, much of the core material of an undergraduate course in physics is reviewed from a more mature point of view. This is not, in fact, a substitute for existing texts. Rather it goes beyond them by improving the student's appreciation of the subject.

Book Description:

This unique book shows how physics, as practised by professional physicists, can be appreciated through a series of case studies spanning essentially the whole of a university physics course. Although all the arguments are set out precisely in physical and mathematical terms, it is written in a lively and non-technical manner, intended to deepen understanding and appreciation of the incredible achievements of theorists in creating the structure of modern physics. The first edition has been enjoyed by many generations of students; this new edition extends and deepens all the topics.
