  • This comprehensive book provides the most complete coverage of general relativity and cosmology-with detailed discussions on the historical origins of topics.
  • Its presentation is consistently linked to observation, and to the physical numbers as well, so that readers develop a sense of the magnitudes involved in the material being covered
  • Chapter topics include waves as particles and particles as waves, atoms and the Bohr Model, The Schr dinger Equation, barriers and wells, statistical physics, conductors, insulators, and superconductors, and elementary particle physics.
