Summary

Nonclassical Physics: Beyond Newton's View introduces a wide range of physics principles developed in the past century, providing students with a solid understanding of fundamental ideas upon which more complex concepts are built. Throughout the book the author focuses on key topics of concern today, giving the text a more contemporary approach than most modern physics texts. Through discussions, examples, and exercises involving real-world applications, the author encourages students to apply their newfound understanding quantitatively in all areas of natural science as well as in physics.

  • A contemporary approach focuses students on the most relevant and new material in physics, with less emphasis on non-essential earlier theories.
  • A clear and engaging writing style offers explanations in basic terms, centering on the main ideas of current material.
  • The text covers the basics while also providing optional, self-contained topics, both at the same level as the main text and at a more advanced level.
  • Special Progress and Application sections at the end of each chapter discuss recent advances, lingering mysteries, and important applications related to chapter material.
  • A range of problems, from easy to advanced, helps students test their understanding.
  • Boxed essays explain points of particular interest or address more complex ideas touched upon in chapters.
  • Feedback obtained from class testing has been incorporated into the text.
