The classical physics of oscillations and waves is developed at a more advanced level than has been customary for the second year, providing a basis for the quantum mechanics that follows. In this new edition the Green's function is explained, reinforcing the integration of quantum mechanics with classical by: I am using this book as part of a physics course as an introduction to wave behavior. As a physics major at a school with a very rigorous program, I have already proven myself competent by surviving, and enjoying, my first year of physics courses. Like the student from Cornell said, though, this text is completely indecipherable to a by: Listed in New Books, Physics Today "This book provides a rigorous introduction to a host of wave and oscillation phenomena and their real-world and research applications, while at the same time laying the mathematical and conceptual groundwork for upper level physics by: 9. begin with the single harmonic oscillator and work our way through standing wave normal modes in more and more interesting systems. Traveling waves appear only after a thorough exploration of one-dimensional standing waves. I hope to emphasize that the physics of standing waves is the same. Only the boundary conditions are different.

  BSc Sem I & II Recommended Text-Books & eBooks. If we look at the syllabus of BSc Sem I, Mechanics, Electricity & Theory of Oscillations are three major books. On the other hand in Sem II, General Properties of Matter, Magnetism & Wave Acoustics are main books. University Physics I: Classical Mechanics. Contributor: Gea-Banacloche. Publisher: University of Arkansas. This is a “minimalist” textbook for a first semester of university, calculus-based physics, covering classical mechanics (including one chapter on mechanical waves, but excluding fluids), plus a brief introduction to thermodynamics. This physics textbook is designed to support my personal teaching activities at Duke University, in particular teaching its Physics /, /, or / series (Introduc- tory Physics for life science majors, engineers, or potential physics majors, respectively). This introductory, algebra-based, two-semester college physics book is grounded with real-world examples, illustrations, and explanations to help students grasp key, fundamental physics concepts. This online, fully editable and customizable title includes learning objectives, concept questions, links to labs and simulations, and ample practice opportunities to solve traditional physics 4/5(40).

For a first book, I very much enjoyed Introduction to Wave Phenomena, By Hirose. This book uses very simple English to introduce waves at a level appropriate for a 2nd or 3rd year undergraduate. As a non-traditional physics graduate student, this book took me a week or so to master, and was very enjoyable.   Well, it depends on what you intend to study. If you want to have a good idea of the basic concepts that you’re going to study each year (or semester), I'd say you can go for Principles of Physics by Resnick, Halliday and Walker.
