Kurzbeschreibung

Professor R. Shankar, a well-known physicist and contagiously enthusiastic educator, was among the first to offer a course through the innovative Open Yale Course program. His popular online video lectures on introductory physics have been viewed over a million times. In this concise and self-contained book based on his online Yale course, Shankar explains the fundamental concepts of physics from Galileo’s and Newton’s discoveries to the twentieth-century’s revolutionary ideas on relativity and quantum mechanics.
 
The book begins at the simplest level, develops the basics, and reinforces fundamentals, ensuring a solid foundation in the principles and methods of physics. It provides an ideal introduction for college-level students of physics, chemistry, and engineering, for motivated AP Physics students, and for general readers interested in advances in the sciences.

Das Buch führt den Leser in die Grundlagen der Mechanik (klassisch als auch relativistisch) und der Thermodynamik ein. Der Autor versteht es den Sachverhalt gewohnt klar und deutlich als auch mit dem ihm eigenen Humor zu vermitteln. Man kann jedes der Kapitel ohne Probleme in einem Zug lesen. Das behandelte Material bleibt elementar und geht in keiner Weise über den Inhalt einer Physikvorlesung hinaus, es bildet vielmehr meiner Meinung nach das Fundament für ein Verständnis der behandelten Themen. Das Buch eignet sich hervorragend zur Begleitung der entsprechenden Vorlesungen oder zum ersten Selbststudium der Themengebiete, um die wie im Titel angesprochenen "Fundamentals" zu legen und zu verstehen.
Ich denke, dass das Buch zur Prüfungsvorbereitung in unter einer Woche gewinnbringend gelesen werden kann, um einen guten Überblick zu erhalten. Ergänzend sollten Aufgaben aus anderen Lehrbüchern gerechnet werden, da dieses keine enthält. Der Leser sollte mit der einfachsten Differential- und Integralrechnung sowie der Vektorrechnung vertraut sein. Weiterhin sollten trigonometrische sowie hyperbolische Funktionen bekannt sein. Alle über diese Gebiete hinausgehenden Sachverhalte werden an gegebener Stelle im Buch eingeschoben und sehr deutlich erklärt.

Wem dieses Buch gefällt, der sollte auch die anderen Werke des Autors lesen. R. Shankar ist ein Meister im Schreiben von Lehrbüchern für den normalen Studenten oder an Physik Interessierten. Ich kann jedem meine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung aller von ihm verfassten Lehrbücher geben. Vom "Basic Training in Mathematics" bis zum anspruchsvolleren aber wunderschönen "Principles of Quantum Mechanics" sind aller Werke ein Genuß für jeden, der sich intensiv mit Physik auseinandersetzen möchte.
Weiterhin sei auf die wunderbaren Online-Vorlesungen hingewiesen, die kostenlos im Internet zu sehen sind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I hope he publishes the second series! 17. Februar 2014
Von Aeyr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Must-read! 12. Februar 2014
Von Branislav Djordjevic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent for quick review. Jokes are not that funny. 17. Juni 2014
Von Leeber Cohen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Free video course 11. Juni 2014
Von R. Heaton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this to go along with his free video courses from the Open Yale Courses. He has presented Physics 200 and 201. The book has instructions to get to those courses. The videos are classroom sessions that follow the book, mostly. The material that comes with the videos include problems sets (and solutions), exams (and solutions) along with extra material. Having the book adds to the richness of the some fifty videos for both Physics 200 and 201. It has been long time since physics classes, so this book and the accompanying videos, are a way to get back into the subject, the math and the new concepts. Not that I have been that successful, but the book does help. I think that it is not that I have forgotten that much (OK, maybe a little), but that there is so much more physics now.
