Based on a course taught at the University of Rochester, this volume describes the physical principles on which modern technology is based. Four primary areas are discussed; computers and microelectronics, communications, nuclear energy and space flight. Each topic is treated in a manner that provides the reader with insight into the underlying physics that makes the technology possible as well as the orders of magnitude involved. The book will appeal to anyone interested in modern technology and will serve as a reference book and a textbook for courses in applied physics, and engineering.

Industry Reviews

"...there is an admirable aim here--to tie the theory of physics to its application. The result could be an education and a handy reference guide for practitioners as well as students." The Engineer "Principles of Modern Technology is well worth the money, and is the kind of mind expanding challenge that engineers and scientists need. Melissinos is well organized and challenging as he leads us through the major issues of the magic of modern technology." Applied Mechanics Review
