Synopses & Reviews
Bring Modern Physics to Life with a Realistic Software Simulation! Enhance the thorough coverage of Krane's Modern Physics 2e with hands-on, real-world experience! Modern Physics Simulations, developed by the Consortium for Upper-Level Physics Software (CUPS), offers complex, realistic calculations of models of various physical systems. Like all of the CUPS simulations, it is remarkably easy to use, yet sophisticated enough for explorations of new ideas. Important Features Include:
* Powerful simulations covering Historic Experiments in Electron Diffraction, Laser Cavities & Dynamics, Classical Scattering, Nuclear Properties & Decays, Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, and the Hydrogen Atom & the H2+ Molecule.
* Pascal source code for all programs and a number of exercises suggesting specific ways the programs can be modified.
* Graphical (often animated) displays in most simulations.
The entire CUPS simulation series consists of nine books/software simulations which cover Astrophysics, Electricity and Magnetism, Classical Mechanics, Modern Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Nuclear and Particle Physics, Solid State Physics, Thermal and Statistical Physics, and Waves and Optics.
Synopsis
This physics textbook has been revised and redesigned to ensure that the student has a gradual, accessible introduction to new and unfamiliar concepts. Topics discussed include solid state physics, radioactivity, statistical physics, cosmology, astrophysics, the Schrodinger equation and more.
