Author Bio

**Serway, Raymond A. : **

Raymond A. Serway received his doctorate at Illinois Institute of Technology and is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. In 1990, he received the Madison Scholar Award at James Madison University, where he taught for 17 years. Dr. Serway began his teaching career at Clarkson University, where he conducted research and taught from 1967 to 1980. He was the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award at Clarkson University in 1977 and of the Alumni Achievement Award from Utica College in 1985. As Guest Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, he worked with K. Alex Muller, 1987 Nobel Prize recipient. Dr. Serway also was a visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, where he collaborated with his mentor and friend, Sam Marshall. Dr. Serway is also the author of PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, 3rd edition and co-author OF PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, 5th edition, MODERN PHYSICS, 2nd edition, and (with Dr. Faughn) the high-school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston. In addition, Dr. Serway has published more than 40 research papers in the field of condensed matter physics and has given more than 60 presentations at professional meetings. Dr. Serway and his wife Elizabeth enjoy traveling, golfing, and spending quality time with their four children and four grandchildren.

**Faughn, Jerry A. : **

Jerry S. Faughn earned his doctorate at the University of Mississippi. He is Professor Emeritus and former Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Eastern Kentucky University. Dr. Faughn has also written a microprocessor interfacing text for upper-division physics students. He is co-author of a non-mathematical physics text and a physical science text for general education students, and (with Dr. Serway) the high-school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston. He has taught courses ranging from the lower division to the graduate level, but his primary interest is in students just beginning to learn physics. He has been director of a number of NSF and state grants, many of which were devoted to the improvement of physics education. He believes that there is no greater calling than to be a teacher and an interpreter of physics for others. Dr. Faughn has a wide variety of hobbies, among which are reading, travel, genealogy, and old-time radio. His wife Mary Ann is an avid gardener, and he contributes to her efforts by staying out of the way. His daughter Laura is in family practice and his son David is an attorney.
