This is an elementary textbook on dynamics, written especially for the beginning student of mathematics and physics. Emphasizing the concrete aspects of dynamics, it provides an unusually detailed treatment of the entire subject, from elementary definitions to problems of motion in three dimensions. Many of the topics treated by the author are not discussed in later books on the subject, although they have again become important in recent applications of dynamic theory.... A particularly valuable feature of the book is the large number of examples and exercises, many of them worked out completely. Over 550 of these problems are incorporated into the text, making it possible for the student to test his understanding of each new principle before going on to the next.

Arnold Johannes Wilhelm Sommerfeld (1868 – 1951) was a German theoretical physicist who pioneered developments in atomic and quantum physics, and also educated and mentored a large number of students for the new era of theoretical physics. He served as PhD supervisor for many Nobel Prize winners in physics and chemistry (his record of mentorship is comparable only to that of J. J. Thomson). He introduced the 2nd quantum number (azimuthal quantum number) and the 4th quantum number (spin quantum number). He also introduced the fine-structure constant and pioneered X-ray wave theory.

Planet Quest: The Epic Discovery of Alien Solar Systems.

By Ken Croswell .

New York, NY Simon & Schuster: Free Press, 1997. Hardcover First Edition; First Printing indicated. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR. First Edition; First Printing indicated. Very Near Fine in Very Near Fine DJ: The Book shows just a hint of shelving wear along the bottom edge of the boards; else flawless; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean. The DJ shsows only the mildest rubbing; the price is unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 324pp. Hardback with DJ. Ken Croswell's book, "Planet Quest" is a must for anyone interested in the search for planets outside of the solar system. The book reads well, telling a fascinating story from the beginnings of speculation about the existence of alien worlds right up to the present when information is coming to us all the time about strange new worlds around distant stars. Anybody with an interest in the possibilities of life elsewhere must read this book. Before reading "Planet Quest", I was completely ignorant on this subject; I just assumed that someone found the planets sometime ago and that'd be good enough for me. That is no longer the case after going through the pages of "Planet Quest". With a clear, simple style of writing, the author offered readers like me wonderful insights into the thrilling process of hunting for a new planet. This is a non-fiction work, but I felt captivated as if reading Jules Verne novels! When following the stories of planet hunters with their glories and their defeats, I could conclude that life is much better than fiction. Good analogies were offered throughout to explain complicated details, especially to illustrate those infinite statistics on the immense universe. I do appreciate this eye-opening experience, which definitely enriched my knowledge in many ways. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY AUTHOR.
