Description:
This is an intensive introduction to classical and special relativity, Newtonian dynamics and gravitation, Einsteinian dynamics and gravitation, and wave motion. Mathematical methods include: elements of differential geometry, linear operators and matrices, ordinary differential equations, calculus of variations, orthogonal functions and Fourier series, and non-linear equations for chaotic systems. This is a book for first-year college students who have an interest in pursuing a career in Physics or a closely related field.

The Art of Insight in Science and Engineering: Mastering Complexity
by Sanjoy Mahajan - The MIT Press
Sanjoy Mahajan shows us that the way to master complexity is through insight rather than precision. He first teaches the tools for organizing complexity, then distinguishes two paths for discarding complexity: with and without loss of information.
