Essential Physics 1
by Frank W. K. Firk
Publisher: Archive.org 2000
Number of pages: 210
This is an intensive introduction to classical and special relativity, Newtonian dynamics and gravitation, Einsteinian dynamics and gravitation, and wave motion. Mathematical methods include: elements of differential geometry, linear operators and matrices, ordinary differential equations, calculus of variations, orthogonal functions and Fourier series, and non-linear equations for chaotic systems. This is a book for first-year college students who have an interest in pursuing a career in Physics or a closely related field.
