About the book:

This text presents a summary of the basic theoretical structures of classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, statistical physics, special relativity and modern field theories. The book can be used by advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students as a supplement to the standard texts and for a succinct review of the key areas. Professionals in such quantitative sciences as chemistry, engineering, computer science, applied mathematics and biophysics who need to brush up on the essentials of a particular area will find most of the required background material, including the mathematics. Chapters may be read in any order, although the order in which they appear indicates roughly their level of difficulty and the extent to which a particular chapter depends upon knowledge and sophistication gained in preceding ones. Each chapter consists of a main part which gives the core theory and additional, optional sections that are more advanced and specialized.
