Modern Physics – Paul A. Tipler, Ralph Llewellyn – 5th Edition


For the intermediate-level course, the Fifth Edition of this widely used text takes modern physics to a higher level. With a flexible approach to accommodate the various ways of teaching the course (both one- and two-term tracks are easily covered), the authors recognize the audience and its need for updated coverage, mathematical rigor, and features to build and support understanding.

Continued are the superb explanatory style, the up-to-date topical coverage, and the enhancements that gained earlier editions worldwide recognition. Enhancements include a streamlined approach to nuclear physics, thoroughly revised and updated coverage on and astrophysics, and a review of the essential Classical Concepts important to studying Modern Physics.
