The origins of Physics, the study of matter and its motion through space-time and related concepts, date back to ancient Greece. From the intuitions of Greek philosophers to nowadays cutting-edge research, the discipline has been continually progressing on a large number of fronts, including mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms.

The authoritative books and textbooks listed under Research and Markets’ Physics category, written by the world's leading researchers, are invaluable references, comprehensive and readily accessible, covering all the key areas in today’s research. Pre-publication titles are also included to give you the possibility to stay in touch with the latest developments in your research field as soon as they are available.

The readership of this category includes both graduate and undergraduate students, as well as researchers and mature general physicists. Show Less
