Physics for Students of Science and Engineering is a calculus-based textbook of introductory physics. The book reviews standards and nomenclature such as units, vectors, and particle kinetics including rectilinear motion, motion in a plane, relative motion. The text also explains particle dynamics, Newton's three laws, weight, mass, and the application of Newton's laws. The text reviews the principle of conservation of energy, the conservative forces (momentum), the nonconservative forces (friction), and the fundamental quantities of momentum (mass and velocity). The book examines changes in momentum known as impulse, as well as the laws in momentum conservation in relation to explosions, collisions, or other interactions within systems involving more than one particle. The book considers the mechanics of fluids, particularly fluid statics, fluid dynamics, the characteristics of fluid flow, and applications of fluid mechanics. The text also reviews the wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, the probabilistic interpretation of microscopic particles (such as electrons), and quantum theory. The book is an ideal source of reference for students and professors of physics, calculus, or related courses in science or engineering.

Workbook to Accompany: Physics for Students of Science and Engineering is 25-chapter workbook designed to accompany the Physics for Students of Science and Engineering textbook. This workbook is a collection of question and problems that are representative of the topics covered in the textbook. The format of this workbook is based on individual chapters of the textbook. The questions and problems associated with each chapter begin with a one-page review of the definitions, units, and simple relationships appropriate to that chapter. Each review, in the form of questions and one-step problems, is followed by more comprehensive problems, formatted one to a page. Each problem is stated at the top of a page, and the student is provided space to execute each element of the problem-solving procedure. A detailed solution to each problem is presented in the same form, such as in the format of the problem solving procedure, on the reverse side of the page. The solution page often includes comments and suggestions appropriate to the specific type of problem being considered. The opening chapters include discussions on particle kinematics and dynamics; applications of Newton’s laws; and work, power, and energy. The subsequent chapters explore the concepts of momentum, collisions, rotational motion, oscillations, mechanics of fluids, heat, and thermodynamics. Other chapters examine the principles of electric charge, electric fields, electric potential, capacitance, current, resistance, direct-current circuits, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic oscillations. The remaining chapters deal with wave motion, sound, geometric and physical optics, special relativity, early quantum physics, and wave mechanics. This workbook will be of great benefit to physics teachers and students.

This textbook provides an introductory presentation of all types of lasers. It contains a general description of the laser, a theoretical treatment and a characterization of its operation as it deals with gas, solid state, free-electron and semiconductor lasers. This expanded and updated second edition of the book presents a description of the dynamics of free-electron laser oscillation using a model introduced in the first edition that allows a reader to understand basic properties of a free-electron laser and makes the difference to “conventional” lasers. The discussions and the treatment of equations are presented in a way that a reader can immediately follow. The book addresses graduate and undergraduate students in science and engineering, featuring problems with solutions and over 400 illustrations.

This book presents a comprehensive course of quantum mechanics for undergraduate and graduate students. After a brief outline of the innovative ideas that lead up to the quantum theory, the book reviews properties of the Schrödinger equation, the quantization phenomena and the physical meaning of wave functions. The book discusses, in a direct and intelligible style, topics of the standard quantum formalism like the dynamical operators and their expected values, the Heisenberg and matrix representation, the approximate methods, the Dirac notation, harmonic oscillator, angular momentum and hydrogen atom, the spin-field and spin-orbit interactions, identical particles and Bose-Einstein condensation etc. Special emphasis is devoted to study the tunneling phenomena, transmission coefficients, phase coherence, energy levels splitting and related phenomena, of interest for quantum devices and heterostructures. The discussion of these problems and the WKB approximation is done using the transfer matrix method, introduced at a tutorial level. This book is a textbook for upper undergraduate physics and electronic engineering students.
