A Course in Theoretical Physics - download pdf or read online

By P. John Shepherd

This booklet is a complete account of 5 prolonged modules overlaying the main branches of twentieth-century theoretical physics, taught by means of the writer over a interval of 3 a long time to scholars on bachelor and grasp collage measure classes in either physics and theoretical physics.

The modules disguise nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, thermal and statistical physics, many-body idea, classical box concept (including distinctive relativity and electromagnetism), and, eventually, relativistic quantum mechanics and gauge theories of quark and lepton interactions, all awarded in one, self-contained volume.

In a couple of universities, a lot of the cloth lined (for instance, on Einstein’s basic concept of relativity, at the BCS concept of superconductivity, and at the usual version, together with the idea underlying the prediction of the Higgs boson) is taught in postgraduate classes to starting PhD students.

A virtue of the publication is that complete, step by step mathematical proofs of all crucial effects are given, permitting a scholar who has accomplished a high-school arithmetic direction and the 1st 12 months of a school physics measure path to appreciate and savour the derivations of very a number of the most crucial result of twentieth-century theoretical physics.
