Présentation de l'éditeur

The second edition of Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers is intended for a first course in modern physics. Beginning with a brief and focused account of the historical events leading to the formulation of modern quantum theory, later chapters delve into the underlying physics. Streamlined content, chapters on semiconductors, Dirac equation and quantum field theory, as well as a robust pedagogy and ancillary package, including an accompanying website with computer applets, assist students in learning the essential material. The applets provide a realistic description of the energy levels and wave functions of electrons in atoms and crystals. The Hartree-Fock and ABINIT applets are valuable tools for studying the properties of atoms and semiconductors.

  • Develops modern quantum mechanical ideas systematically and uses these ideas consistently throughout the book
  • Carefully considers fundamental subjects such as transition probabilities, crystal structure, reciprocal lattices, and Bloch theorem which are fundamental to any treatment of lasers and semiconductor devices
  • Clarifies each important concept through the use of a simple example and often an illustration
  • Features expanded exercises and problems at the end of each chapter
  • Offers multiple appendices to provide quick-reference for students

Biographie de l'auteur

John Morrison received a BS degree in Physics from University of Santa
Clara in California. During his undergraduate years, he majored in English,
Philosophy, and Physics and served as the editor of the campus literary magazine,
the Owl. Enrolling at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland,
he received a PhD degree in theoretical Physics and moved on to postdoctoral
research at Argonne National Laboratory where he was a member of the Heavy
Atom Group.
He then went to Sweden where he received a grant from the Swedish Research
Council to build up a research group in theoretical atomic physics at
Chalmers Technical University in Goteborg, Sweden. Working together with
Ingvar Lindgren, he taught a graduate level-course in theoretical atomic physics
for a number of years. Their teaching lead to the publication of the monograph,
Atomic Many-Body Theory, which rst appeared as Volume 13 of the Springer
Series on Chemical Physics. The second edition of this book has become a
Springer classic.
Returning to the United States, John Morrison obtained a position in the
Department of Physics and Astronomy at University of Louisville where he has
taught courses in elementary physics, astronomy, modern physics, and quantum
mechanics. In recent years, he has traveled extensively in Latin America and
the Middle East maintaining contacts with scientists and mathematicians at the
Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Technion University in Haifa. During
the Fall semester of 2009, he taught a course on computational physics at Birzeit
University near Ramallah on the West Bank, and he has recruited Palestinian
students for the graduate program in physics at University of Louisville. He
speaks English, Swedish, and Spanish, and he is currently studying Arabic and

HASH(0x9cdfbaf8) étoiles sur 5 Excellent resource for introductory modern physics. 12 janvier 2013
Par Matt - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Unfortunately I fear that those who review the book negatively on account of it not explaining things well, or being confusing, are just not cut out for the advanced physics that awaits them. This book is fully comprehensive, and so long as you understand calculus, this will provide everything you need in order to prepare for advanced, modern physics. In addition, it is an excellent GRE study source for the modern physics section. The questions at the end of each chapter ensure that you not only have the basic formulas and definitions memorized, but that you can apply them as well.

HASH(0x9e21dc20) étoiles sur 5 good overall 21 novembre 2011
Par Will S - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Good book for a very abstract subject. The author writes the book almost as though from a historical perspective, putting emphasis on the scientists who made the discoveries that most other books wouldn't bother to do. This helps because it gives the student a general understanding of why and how certain discoveries and equations came about. It's kinda hard to follow if you just skim over the chapters, but if you actually read the whole chapter you get a good understanding of the material and the equations.

HASH(0x9cdf2ccc) étoiles sur 5 Best way to get started on Modern Physics! 21 novembre 2011
Par Feil01 - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is a must have for anyone who is interested in learning all the basics of modern physics. It touches on all the main concepts and ideas of the subject and goes on with interesting applications and some history. Although it is important to have a strong math background to understand some of the derivations, most of the material can be understood with just simple calculus.
I have read trough parts of more popular books like "Quantum Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei, and Particle," and while these books tend to go into more depth, they simply lack a clear explanation of the concepts. Anyone who is just getting started in modern physics should definitely start with this book. Perfect for an undergraduate quantum physics course!

HASH(0x9ce72d80) étoiles sur 5 Good for self-instruction 6 février 2013
Par Jim G - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you want to learn more about modern and/or quantum physics, this book is great for self-instruction. It may be helpful to brush up a little on differential equations first. The author uses a wave mechanics approach. The introduction and first three chapters were very clear and easy to read. They develop the Shrödinger equation and its application. Chapter 4 covered the hydrogen atom. I then skipped ahead to read chapter 11 on relativity. For a self-study of quantum physics using a matrix mechanics approach, check out Quantum Mechanics Demystified

HASH(0x9cb25480) étoiles sur 5 Good book 3 décembre 2011
Par Steven Skees - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is one of the few physics books that I've seen that is able to write everything in everyday English, yet at the same time, enhance understanding of the material. Many of the chapters are independent of one another, so it allows flexibility within the class. While there are certainly more advanced and mathematically intense topics that are not included in the text, this book is a good way to introduce yourself to Modern Physics, and other books can be used to fill in the gaps later once you understand the most important ideas and concepts.
