Full Synopsis: "This book assembles 21 essays on the history of mechanics and mathematical physics written by David Speiser. Covering a period from the beginning of the seventeenth century to the eighteenth, the essays discuss developments in elasticity, rigid bodies, gravitation, the principle of relativity, optics, and first principles. Used or rental books If you rent or purchase a used book with an access code, the access code may have been redeemed previously and you may have to purchase a new access code. Access codes Access codes that are purchased from sellers other than Pearson carry a higher risk of being either the wrong ISBN or a previously redeemed code.

This book is designed for students with some previous acquaintance with the elementary concepts of mechanics, but the book starts from first principles, and little detailed knowledge is assumed. An essential prerequisite is a reasonable familiarity with differential and integral calculus, including partial differentiation. This book is especially written for advanced accounting courses in which an intuitive understanding of the material, in addition to accounting mechanics, is emphasized. Feedback from students who used our text, and subsequently completed the uniform CPA exam, has been extremely positive. They report that they felt well-prepared for the portions.

This book provides a comprehensive account of basic concepts of quantum mechanics in a coherent manner. The book is self-contained and not only covers basic concepts in quantum mechanics but also provides a basis for applications in atomic and laser physics, nuclear and particle physics, and condensed matter physics.Analytical mechanics for engineers.

This book, as its name suggests, presents those principles of mechanics that are believed to be essential for the student of the information is there, and is told simple yet completely.

Author(s): Fred B Seely.“Classical mechanics gave us a deterministic view of the world. Quantum mechanics, conversely, gives us a probabilistic view instead. According to Newton, if you know the cause af an event, you can predict the outcome.

According toyou can only predict how likely that outcome will be.” ― Leonid V. Azaroff.
