  • The conceptual changes brought by modern physics are important, radical and fascinating, yet they are only vaguely understood by people working outside the field Exploring the four pillars of modern physics relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles and cosmology this clear and lively account will interest anyone who has wondered what Einstein, Bohr, SchrodingerThe conceptual changes brought by modern physics are important, radical and fascinating, yet they are only vaguely understood by people working outside the field Exploring the four pillars of modern physics relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles and cosmology this clear and lively account will interest anyone who has wondered what Einstein, Bohr, Schrodinger and Heisenberg were really talking about The book discusses quarks and leptons, antiparticles and Feynman diagrams, curved space time, the Big Bang and the expanding Universe Suitable for undergraduate students in non science as well as science subjects, it uses problems and worked examples to help readers develop an understanding of what recent advances in physics actually mean.

    Highest praise I can give a book: I am returning it to the library before I'm done so that I can buy my own copy. Full disclosure: I probably wouldn't do this if I wasn't a physics teacher. I can imagine loaning a copy out to my precocious high school students who keep asking me those pesky, but interesting questions about modern physics that don't quite fit into the curriculum. Also, the book is helping to crystalize a lot of things I can "sort of" explain currently such that I can do it with m [...]

    There are many books on the topic of popular physics but most of them are targeted first time readers of this genre and are very introductory in nature.But this book gives you all the necessary details in the field WHICH ARE RELEVANT to you while choosing not to go into details of things which won't effect your understanding of the topic. In other words it has the perfect combination of details and abstraction for an interested high school student or a freshman year undergraduate student of phys [...]

    From my Review:TITLE: Most concise introduction to modern physicsREVIEW: (caveat emptor: Do read the preface of this book so you know who/what this book is NOT for)I used this as the textbook for a summer particle physics I taught that was geared toward advanced high school students (some of whom have taken calculus; most have only taken high-school mechanics). This book is perfect for any instructor teaching a modern physics course aimed at audiences who do not have much physics/mathematics ba [...]

    I am writing this review as a sophomore Physics college student.This is one of the best introductory books on Modern Physics.It also has a whole part about classical mechanics that'll help you to remember the basic laws before going all Quantum and leaving the solid mechanical base behind.Modern Physics have an incredible variety of subjects and it is very easy to misunderstood.Subjects like Relativity or Nonlocality are hard to get a grip of if someone is not personally explaining to you.He mad [...]

    It was interesting. I read it a while ago, and the main thing I remember was the fourth(?) chapter, where the author was talking about the discovery of what were, at the time, thought to be elementary particles (mesons, pions, baryons etc). At first it read like an interesting tale of discovery, but after a while it felt like an increasingly long list of the same discovery over and over again. I mostly resorted to bad jokes about the elementary particle physicists to get myself through that sect [...]

    This is a very concise guide to the developments in physics in the 20th century. The author gives a quick tour of basic concepts and definitions before covering the last hundred years. He does so in a brisk, no-nonsense style and uses a lot of problems to demonstrate his points.A useful revision aid for undergraduates or a basic introduction to the general reader.For a more thorough treatment of the issues, see his textbooks.

    physics book that I think fairly summarize all the concepts of physics for beginners with a simple understanding.

    Not what I expected a little drier than I had hoped fter reading the title, a tad workbooky for my taste but overall definitely worth the time
