Library E-Books

We have signed up with three aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a “patron-driven demand” model.

These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus, but only from the following aggregators:

  • Ebook Library, a service of Ebooks Corporation Ltd. of Australia
  • ebrary, based in Palo Alto, a subsidiary of ProQuest
  • EBSCO / netLibrary, Alabama

as well as through the following wholesalers: The Yankee Book Peddler subsidiary of Baker & Taylor, Inc.

This book may be used by students and professionals in physics and engineering that have completed first-year calculus and physics. An introductory chapter reviews algebra, trigonometry, units and complex numbers that are frequently used in physics. Examples using MATLAB and Maple for symbolic and numerical calculations in physics with a variety of plotting features are included in all 16 chapters. The book applies many of mathematical concepts covered in Chapters 1-9 to fundamental physics topics in mechanics, electromagnetics; quantum mechanics and relativity in Chapters 10-16. Companion files are included with MATLAB and Maple worksheets and files, and all of the figures from the text.

Features:

• Each chapter includes the mathematical development of the concept with numerous examples

• MATLAB & Maple examples are integrated in each chapter throughout the book

• Applies the mathematical concepts to fundamental physics principles such as relativity, mechanics, electromagnetics, etc.

• Introduces basic MATLAB and Maple commands and programming structures

• Includes companion files with MATLAB and Maple files and worksheets, and all of the figures from the text
