Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Professor R. Shankar, a well-known physicist and contagiously enthusiastic educator, was among the first to offer a course through the innovative Open Yale Course program. His popular online video lectures on introductory physics have been viewed over a million times. In this concise and self-contained book based on his online Yale course, Shankar explains the fundamental concepts of physics from Galileoandrsquo;s and Newtonandrsquo;s discoveries to the twentieth-centuryandrsquo;s revolutionary ideas on relativity and quantum mechanics.

and#160;

The book begins at the simplest level, develops the basics, and reinforces fundamentals, ensuring a solid foundation in the principles and methods of physics. It provides an ideal introduction for college-level students of physics, chemistry, and engineering, for motivated AP Physics students, and for general readers interested in advances in the sciences.

Instructor resources--including problem sets and sample examinations--and more information about Professor Shankarand#39;s course are available at http://oyc.yale.edu/physics/phys-200.
