Modern Physics – Paul A. Tipler, Ralph Llewellyn – 4th Edition


and ’s acclaimed text for the intermediate-level course (not the third semester of the introductory course) guides students through the foundations and wide-ranging applications of with the utmost clarity–without sacrificing scientific integrity.

This new edition combines pedagogy, problem sets, and teaching art in a presentation that includes coverage of a number of new topics and discoveries. It features problems divided by level of difficulty; offers valuable grounding in the history of the field; accommodates both one and two term courses and allows instructors vary the applications topics covered from term to term; uses real data, photographs of people and apparatus, and quotations from original papers; cover relativity divided into two chapters, enabling instructors to teach just the basics or go deeper without disturbing continuity; has exploring sections throughout which deal with very current topics and/or topics of high interest; and a new chapter, Astrophysics and , is on the Modern Site, with dramatic colour photos, and links to astronomy and astrophysics research sites worldwide.
