Applications of Classical Physics
by Roger D. Blandford, Kip S. Thorne
Publisher: California Institute of Technology 2008
Number of pages: 336
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.

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.
