Physics9780521740234StoweAn Intro to Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics200777
 




This introductory textbook for standard undergraduate courses in thermodynamics has been completely rewritten. Starting with an overview of important quantum behaviours, the book teaches students how to calculate probabilities, in order to provide a firm foundation for later chapters. It introduces the ideas of classical thermodynamics and explores them both in general and as they are applied to specific processes and interactions. The remainder of the book deals with statistical mechanics - the study of small systems interacting with huge reservoirs. The changes to this second edition have been made after more than 10 years classroom testing and student feedback. Each topic ends with a boxed summary of ideas and results, and every chapter contains numerous homework problems, covering a broad range of difficulties. Answers are given to odd numbered problems, and solutions to even problems are available to instructors.
- The entire book has been rewritten and now covers more topics
- It has a greater number of homework problems which range in difficulty from warm-ups to challenges
- It is concise and has an easy reading style

In this third edition of his popular undergraduate-level textbook, Des Nicholl recognises that a sound grasp of basic principles is vital in any introduction to genetic engineering. Therefore, the book retains its focus on the fundamental principles used in gene manipulation. It is divided into three sections: Part I provides an introduction to the relevant basic molecular biology; Part II, the methods used to manipulate genes; and Part III, applications of the technology. There is a new chapter devoted to the emerging importance of bioinformatics as a distinct discipline. Other additional features include text boxes, which highlight important aspects of topics discussed, and chapter summaries, which include aims and learning outcomes. These, along with key word listings, concept maps and a glossary, will enable students to tailor their study to suit their own learning styles and ultimately gain a firm grasp of a subject that students traditionally find difficult.
- Expanded discussion of applications, including future of gene therapy and the use of genetic engineering in biotechnology
- Discussion of ethics has been expanded to include the role of the scientist and the role of society
- Section on 'genes and genomes' has been expanded to include '-omics' such as proteomics

Mathematics9780521708319GregoryClassical Mechanics200670
 




Gregory's Classical Mechanics is a major new textbook for undergraduates in mathematics and physics. It is a thorough, self-contained and highly readable account of a subject many students find difficult. The author's clear and systematic style promotes a good understanding of the subject: each concept is motivated and illustrated by worked examples, while problem sets provide plenty of practice for understanding and technique. Computer assisted problems, some suitable for projects, are also included. The book is structured to make learning the subject easy; there is a natural progression from core topics to more advanced ones and hard topics are treated with particular care. A theme of the book is the importance of conservation principles. These appear first in vectorial mechanics where they are proved and applied to problem solving. They reappear in analytical mechanics, where they are shown to be related to symmetries of the Lagrangian, culminating in Noether's theorem.
- Suitable for a wide range of undergraduate mechanics courses given in mathematics and physics departments: no prior knowledge of the subject is assumed
- Profusely illustrated and thoroughly class-tested, with a clear direct style that makes the subject easy to understand: all concepts are motivated and illustrated by the many worked examples included
- Good, accurately-set problems, with answers in the book: computer assisted problems and projects are also provided. Model solutions for problems available to teachers.

The focus of Thermodynamics: Concepts and Applications is on traditional thermodynamics topics, but structurally the book introduces the thermal-fluid sciences. Chapter 2 includes essentially all material related to thermodynamic properties clearly showing the hierarchy of thermodynamic state relationships. Element conservation is considered in Chapter 3 as a way of expressing conservation of mass. Constant-pressure and volume combustion are considered in Chapter 5 - Energy Conservation. Chemical and phase equilibria are treated as a consequence of the 2nd law in Chapter 6. 2nd law topics are introduced hierarchically in one chapter, important structure for a beginner. The book is designed for the instructor to select topics and combine them with material from other chapters seamlessly. Pedagogical devices include: learning objectives, chapter overviews and summaries, historical perspectives, and numerous examples, questions and problems and lavish illustrations. Students are encouraged to use the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) online properties database.
- Integration of the thermal-fluid sciences is achieved by using the fundamental mass, energy, and momentum conservation laws as organizing principles and by using five practical applications - the steam power plant, the jet engine, solar-heated buildings, the spark-ignition engine, and biological systems - as themes throughout
- A problem-solving method is presented in Chapter 1 and all examples follow this method.
- Practical applications are stressed throughout and students are encouraged to use the National Institute of Science and Technology NIST-online thermodynamic property database to obtain thermodynamic and transport properties
