**Applications of Classical Physics**

by Roger D. Blandford, Kip S. Thorne

**Publisher**: California Institute of Technology 2008**Number of pages**: 336

**Description**:

This book is an introduction to the fundamentals and 21st-century applications of all the major branches of classical physics. Classical physics and this book deal with physical phenomena on macroscopic scales. We shall take a journey through spacetime and phase space, through statistical and continuum mechanics, and through optics and relativity, both special and general. In our journey, we shall seek to comprehend the fundamental laws of classical physics in their own terms, and in relation to quantum physics.
