Instructors
& Academics:
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 second book based on his online Yale course, Shankar explains essential concepts, including electromagnetism, optics, 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.
“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, on previous volume
R. Shankar is John Randolph Huffman Professor of Physics, Yale University. His popular Open Yale Course 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 three previous textbooks, Fundamentals of Physics: Mechanics, Relativity, and Thermodynamics; Principles of Quantum Mechanics; and Basic Training in Mathematics: A Fitness Program for Science Students.
