Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Extended Version by Fishbane, Paul M.
Pearson Education (US), 12 January 1996
Hardback, 1329 pages
Appropriate for any introductory calculus-based physics course.
Fishbane/Gasiorowicz/Thornton is a comprehensive introduction to calculus-based physics. The most successful first-edition physics text of the last decade, it is the only book written specifically to address the main issue in this course-namely, balancing the needs and wants of the students with those of the instructor. The authors, experienced researchers and teachers, represent both theoretical and experimental physicists. This text presents balance between theory and applications, between concepts and problem-solving, between mathematics and physics, and finally, between technology and traditional pedagogical methods. Appropriate for both scientists and engineers with increased applications for engineering students.
