"Like his online lectures, Shankar's book looks excellent for teaching and learning introductory physics."-Leonard Susskind, Director, Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics -- Leonard Susskind "This introductory text makes easy reading, due to Shankar's great sense of humor and his lucid explanation of the essential ideas of fundamental physics."-David Gross, Nobel Laureate in Physics, 2004 -- David Gross "Akin to a relaxed discussion with a masterful tutor, Shankar's book conveys a strong intuitive understanding with wonderful freshness and clarity. A pedagogical masterpiece."-Daniel Arovas, University of California, San Diego -- Daniel Arovas "The book captures, and enhances, the experience of being in the room as Shankar explains the material. This is physics as it should be taught, clearly and entertainingly presented."-Alan Chodos, American Physical Society -- Alan Chodos

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

R. Shankar is John Randolph Huffman Professor of Physics, Yale University. His popular Open Yale Course "Introduction to Physics" has a major following in the United States, India, Australia, China, and elsewhere. He is the 2009 winner of the American Physical Society's Lilienfeld Prize and the author of two previous textbooks, Principles of Quantum Mechanics and Basic Training in Mathematics: A Fitness Program for Science Students.

I hope he publishes the second series! 17. Februar 2014
Von Aeyr - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Greetings! I am a student of philosophy at University of North Texas that digs a lot into scientific topics on my own. I personally own multiple physics textbooks (Feynman lectures, my university's choice textbook, Dover's Theoretical Physics textbook, etc) and this might be the best one for many reasons:

-It contains all the information contained in my other textbooks except for the content on electromagnetism (which is the subject of his second series of lectures on Yale's website) and quantum mechanics
-It is $25, the cheapest of all the textbooks I have seen
-It is small, lightweight, and only ~430 pages (The feynman lectures are multiple volumes, fragile, and bulky like the university textbook I have)

In terms of the presentation, it tops the dover textbooks (which are usually written like they are being presented to 1950's grad students... the equations are difficult to follow and there is little explanation of what is being done. The topics are kind of random and jumbled). It is on par with my university's textbook for presentation, but isnt a giant 10lb monster and has a lot less miscellaneous information that textbooks are notorious for (also, that textbook was almost $300... granted it contains electromagnetism topics as well). It is hard to compare it to the presentation of the Feynman lectures because of how... unique they are. I would say for a general understanding, the average reader interested in the mathematical physics and a more focused reading would probably prefer Shankar's book.

I think the best part is that there are just as many words as equations (with Shankar's humor that he adds in the lecture series that he based this book off of). This DOES require a little bit of pre-requisite mathematical knowledge, but nothing extremely complex (if you understand how to take a derivative and anti derivative and are familiar with the idea of sines and cosines... you will probably be fine. Otherwise, all you will probably need is to watch the lectures on Khan Academy's website for free and you will probably be prepared). This does go a TINY bit into partial differential equations (multivariable calculus) and deals a bit with extremely rudimentary vector geometry (linear algebra material)... but again, anyone with a basic understanding of high-school level algebra who is familiar with rudimentary calculus will be able to follow. Shankar explains everything that he thinks you might not know.

As a summary:

If you want to learn physics (not just the "facts" like in a Hawking book, but REAL mathematical physics) then this book just about trumps all. The only downside is that this is essentially volume one of what could be a three volume set (2 at least). I first started watching Open Yale Courses back in 2007 as a junior in high school and that has essentially shaped me into who I am today, and this comes directly from his first series there. He has since done a second series on electromagnetism, and I sincerely hope he also makes that into book just as accessible as this one.

Must-read! 12. Februar 2014
Von Branislav Djordjevic - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a must-read for anybody interested in learning, or teaching fundamentals of physics. It is based on Professor Shankar's masterfully held course: Fundamentals of Physics I, available at Open Yale Courses website. This book preserves the unique spirit of Professor Shankar's superb teaching style, the style that makes watching his lectures as exciting and pleasurable experience as watching some great movie! Lot of essential material is expertly covered on these 446 pages: Newtonian mechanics, Oscillations, Waves, Fluids, Special Theory of Relativity, Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, and useful chapters on relevant mathematical methods, as well as many solved examples. The book is extremely readable being stripped of all distractive colorful pictures that burden most of the standard textbooks today. It is written with utmost clarity and with original approach to presenting major topics in physics. As Richard Feynman would put it - no baloney in this book! The text is full of humor, which gives a glimpse of how exciting it is to sit in Prof. Shankar's class. The book is an excellent addition to the recorded course at Open Yale Courses website. The price of the book is very affordable. I hope the second volume, covering Fundamentals of Physics II, will be published soon too. In short - I highly recommend this unique book, written by one of the greatest living bards of the Art of Physics Teaching!

Excellent for quick review. Jokes are not that funny. 17. Juni 2014
Von Leeber Cohen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a good way to refresh your memory of concepts from the first year of college physics. Shankar is well known to many quantum mechanics students book from his textbook. He is a highly respected teacher with an online series on basic physics. I particularly enjoyed Chapter 16 on mathematical methods which is a quick summary of Taylor Series and complex variables. If you are familiar with this material, it is a nice relaxing read of old mathematical friends. The derivations for the series for e, sin, and cos are straightforward if you remember beginning calculus. Shankar quickly mentions Leonard Euler. If you do not know who Leonard Euler is or the significance of the formula attributed him please read Maor's e:the Story of the Number and then Nahin's An Imaginary Tale. The chapters in this book are approximately 20 pages long and usually can be read with about an hour of time. The chapters on rotational dynamics, simple harmonic motion, and waves are an excellent review of concepts that will be required for future study of basic quantum mechanics. There are three nice chapters on special relativity. The reader may also want to check out Collier's A Most Incomprehensible Thing. As stated elsewhere electromagnetism and quantum mechanics are planned in the second volume of this book. Be warned that the author inserts many jokes that are not that funny.

A Great Work 25. Februar 2014
Von CT Fisher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
-old physics seen in a new light and complemented by his usual superb writing style

-packed with fresh ideas, verve, and vitality.

-no other texts are needed regardless of whether you are a pro or an autodidactic enthusiast such as myself.

-never seen a work so brief in number of pages yet filled with so much vital information

-try it and you will become a fan of Shankar as so many others of us have


- and if you are not a mathematics major,don't worry, neither was I and high school calculus/trig more than suffices

A succinct, yet thorough treatment of fundamentals of mechanics and thermodynamics. 17. März 2014
Von dinakar - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you saw the movie (video lectures of PHYS 200) like I did, you must read this book. It covers key concepts of mechanics and thermodynamics in the same lively spirit as Prof.Shankar's classroom lectures. I particularly like the way he handles Special Relativity and Entropy. It's hard to find books that explain otherwise hard to grasp concepts this lucidly. Also, you can't beat the price!
