**Introduction to Theoretical Physics**

by John C. Slater, Nathaniel H. Frank

**Publisher**: McGraw-Hill 1933**Number of pages**: 597

**Description**:

Two general principles have determined the order of presenting the material: mathematical difficulty, and order of historical development. Mechanics and problems of oscillations, involving ordinary differential equations and simple vector analysis, come first. Then follow vibrations and wave motion, introducing partial differential equations which can be solved by separation of variables, and Fourier series. Hydrodynamics, electromagnetic theory, and optics bring in more general partial differential equations, potential theory, and differential vector operations. Wave mechanics uses almost all the mathematical machinery which has been developed in the earlier part of the book.

The aim is to show the student that knowledge of physics enables him to answer many of the questions over which he has puzzled long in vain. The development of each equation is presented with the aid of physical, rather than mathematical concepts.
