Introduction to Theoretical Physics

Publisher: McGraw-Hill
Number of pages: 597

Description:
Two general principles have determined the order of presenting the material: mathematical difficulty, and order of historical development. Mechanics and problems of oscillations, involving ordinary differential equations and simple vector analysis, come first. Then follow vibrations and wave motion, introducing partial differential equations which can be solved by separation of variables, and Fourier series. Hydrodynamics, electromagnetic theory, and optics bring in more general partial differential equations, potential theory, and differential vector operations. Wave mechanics uses almost all the mathematical machinery which has been developed in the earlier part of the book.
