Kenneth S. Krane
Wiley; 4th edition
Krane’s Modern Physics, now in its fourth edition (PDF), is widely regarded as the most authoritative beginning work in the discipline of physics. It presents a comprehensive investigation of the fundamental theory as well as experimentation. This well-respected textbook is designed for undergraduate students studying science and engineering in their second year. It offers a comprehensive introduction to the ideas and procedures that form the basis of modern physics, including in-depth analyses of relativity, statistical physics, nuclear physics, high energy physics, quantum physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. An approach to education that is well-rounded investigates fundamental ideas from two distinct vantage points: first, through the lens of history; then, through the lens of the present era, with an emphasis on relevant experimental evidence and a discussion of recent advancements in the subject. Students of science are given an approachable “storyline” to follow, and the focus is on the interrelationships between principles and procedures that offer continuity.
The use of a variety of educational methods helps students understand the material better, which in turn encourages them to engage in critical thinking and improves their capacity to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios. A wide variety of exercises and practical examples are used to illustrate essential concepts.
