''So effortless to appreciate but so dense with wisdom that you will by no means examine waves on a seashore a similar approach again.''—San Francisco Chronicle
''One of the simplest renowned technology books.''—The Kansas urban Star
''Perfect for the weekend scientist.''—The Richmond News-Leader
A famous physicist and renowned technological know-how author heads for the seashore to respond to universal and unusual questions about the sea. James S. Trefil, writer of Dover courses' The second of production: gigantic Bang Physics from sooner than the 1st Millisecond to the current Universe, explains why the ocean is salty, how bubbles shape at the water's floor, the place waves come from, and different curiosities of the marine global. Dr. Trefil attracts upon his designated reward for clarifying advanced clinical ideas and the theories in the back of them to provide a story that's transparent, available, and completely compelling.

Undying and collectible, The Feynman Lectures on Physics are crucial studying, not only for college kids of physics, yet for a person looking an insightful advent to the sector from the inimitable Richard P. Feynman.
“When i glance on the Feynman Lectures on Physics, i believe a truly own experience of closeness to them,” stated Feynman, on reflection at the origins of those books. starting from simple Newtonian dynamics via such bold theories as Einstein’s relativity, Maxwell’s electrodynamics, and Dirac’s forumulation of quantum mechanics, those accumulated lectures stand as a monument to transparent exposition and deep insight—and to Feynman’s deep reference to the field.
Originally dropped at scholars at Caltech and later formed by means of co-authors Robert B. Leighton and Matthew Sands right into a targeted textbook, the distinguished Feynman Lectures on Physics permits us to event one of many 20th century’s maximum minds. This re-creation positive factors more suitable typography, figures, and indexes, with corrections approved by means of the California Institute of know-how.
