Modern Physics – Paul A. Tipler, Ralph Llewellyn – 6th Edition


Tipler and Llewellyn’s acclaimed text guides students through the and wide ranging applications of modern with the utmost clarity, without sacrificing scientific integrity. With more end-of-chapter than any other text, and a focus on real data and quotations from original papers, this helps turn students into scientists.

The sixth edition has been thoroughly updated with new discoveries and developments in Physics. Recognizing the increasing emphasis of concepts from physics in and medicine, applications in those areas are included in new and revised examples. In conjunction with an updated companion website, and fantastically clear art-work, the updates to this book continue to make it an essential undergraduate text.

A number of new “Application Notes” have been added to the sixth edition. These notes in the margins of many pages point to a few of the many benefits to society that have been made possible by a discovery or in modern physics.

Also new in the sixth edition are the “For You” text boxes. These text boxes highlight current and future research and development activity toward which today’s students may consider directing their own career interests.

Worked-out examples are included in every chapter, and more than two dozen “Exploring” sections deal with text-related topics that captivate student interest, such as superluminal speed and giant atoms.

The text’s flexible accommodates both one- and two-term courses and allows instructors to vary the applications covered from term to term.
