CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Unlike its lengthy competitors, this compact text/reference provides students,
practicing engineers, and scientists with the complete physical laws from
classical mechanics to the quanta optics and semiconductor physics. Tasks,
projects, and experiments are integrated throughout each chapter so the reader
can test the theories as they are presented. Because of its breadth of topics,
the book can be used as a refresher for engineering licensing exams or as a
full year course. It emphasizes only the level of mathematics needed to master
concepts and conduct experiments used in industry. Moreover, the book is
especially suited for self-study because of its readable,
concept-task-experiment structure. Features Designed as a compact
text/reference to provide students, practicing engineers, and scientists with
the complete physical laws from classical mechanics to semiconductor physics
Discusses each topic in a concept-task-experiment structure to reinforce
theory/practice Provides the reader with the mathematical level that is
necessary to master the topics without unnecessary rigor Companion CD-ROM with
selected solutions and all of the figures from the book. Table of Contents 1
