"A very useful reference that I would recommend for physicists' desks.... It represents a lot of excellent work". -- Cynthia Carter, Department of Energy "The basic data on physical constants, units, definitions, and mathematical formulas are presented in a handy, accessible, and authoritative form, and make up just the sort of collection that a harried author, student, or researcher needs". -- John Howard, former Chief Scientist, Air Force Geophysics Laboratory This indispensable book comprises material from the first chapter of A Physicist's Desk Reference, updated and supplemented with new data. Ideal for students and researchers alike.
