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.

Sanjoy Mahajan shows us that the way to master complexity is through insight rather than precision. He first teaches the tools for organizing complexity, then distinguishes two paths for discarding complexity: with and without loss of information.
by R.P. Feynman, M. Sands, R. Leighton - The California Institute of Technology
This is a 1964 physics textbook based upon the lectures given by Feynman to undergraduate students at Caltech. It includes lectures on mathematics, electromagnetism, Newtonian physics, quantum physics, and the relation of physics to other sciences.
by Henry Crew - MacMillan
The fundamental principles of physics are covered: kinematics, simple harmonic motion, some general and special properties of matter, waves, sound, theory of heat, magnetism, electrostatics, electric currents, light, optical instruments.
by Konstantin K. Likharev - Stony Brook University
The goal was to make students familiar with the basic notions of physics, and the main effort was to organize the material in a logical sequence. Topics: Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics.
