Optics: Lectures on Theoretical Physics, Volume IV focuses on the study of optics, particularly on the refraction and reflection of light. Composed of six chapters, the book focuses first on the historical outline of geometrical, physical, and physiological optics. This discussion is followed by the review of basic principles of ideal and natural light and Fresnel's equations on reflection and refraction of light. The optics of moving media and sources is discussed next. This topic covers Doppler effect, the Michelson experiment, and the quantum theory of light. The theory of dispersion is also presented, as well as the ultraviolet resonance, anomalous dispersion, Normal Zeeman effect, and the wave mechanical theory of dispersion. The next part of the book covers crystal optics, including active crystals and fluids, the problem of double refraction, and the optical symmetry of crystals. The theory of diffraction and related experiments are also noted. Numerical analyses and representations are presented in this consideration. Considering the value of the discussions, the readers, including scholars and readers interested to study the physics involved in optics, will find this book a vital source of data.

When, in 1984?86, Richard P. Feynman gave his famous course on computation at the California Institute of Technology, he asked Tony Hey to adapt his lecture notes into a book. Although led by Feynman, the course also featured, as occasional guest speakers, some of the most brilliant men in science at that time, including Marvin Minsky, Charles Bennett, and John Hopfield. Although the lectures are now thirteen years old, most of the material is timeless and presents a ?Feynmanesque? overview of many standard and some not-so-standard topics in computer science such as reversible logic gates and quantum computers.

Quantum Mechanics, Third Edition: Non-relativistic Theory is devoted to non-relativistic quantum mechanics. The theory of the addition of angular momenta, collision theory, and the theory of symmetry are examined, together with spin, nuclear structure, motion in a magnetic field, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules. This book is comprised of 18 chapters and begins with an introduction to the basic concepts of quantum mechanics, with emphasis on the uncertainty principle, the principle of superposition, and operators, as well as the continuous spectrum and the wave function. The following chapters explore energy and momentum; Schrödinger's equation; angular momentum; and motion in a centrally symmetric field and in a magnetic field. Perturbation theory, spin, and the properties of quasi-classical systems are also considered. The remaining chapters deal with the identity of particles, atoms, and diatomic and polyatomic molecules. The final two chapters describe elastic and inelastic collisions. This monograph will be a valuable source of information for physicists.
