MODERN PHYSICS 1st Edition (English, Paperback, G Aruldhas, P Rajagopal)

This book, in its simple and straightforward treatment of the subject, discusses the essentials of Modern Physics. It is designed as a text for the course on Modern Physics for undergraduate students in Physics and other disciplines in science. The text begins with introductory topics such as Atom Models, Wave Mechanical Concepts, Quantum Mechanic and moves on to rather advanced and contemporary topics such as LASERS, Fiber Optics, Holography, and Nuclear and Particle Physics.

Concepts are supplemented by many worked- out examples, review questions, and problems. Simple mathematical techniques have been used to elucidate the underlying principles to make the book explanatory, exhaustive, and user-friendly.
