A Review of Undergraduate Physics This book presents a clear summary of most of the material covered in an American undergraduate program in physics. It should be especially useful to: * Graduate students, or advanced undergraduates, who are preparing to take a comprehensive physics examination.* Physicists and physics students who want a concise, unified treatment of the basic ideas and methods of physics.* Engineers and physical scientists who would like to see more advanced treatments of the concepts they encountered in their undergraduate physics courses. There are six chapters: mechanics, relativity, electricity and magnetism, optics, quantum mechanics and thermal physics. In each, the important physical ideas are applied to the solution of problems at the level of first-year graduate qualifying exams. Additional problems (with brief answers) are given at the end of each chapter.
