Basic Physics: A Self-Teaching Guide
The fast, easy way to master the fundamentals of physics Here is the most practical, complete, and easy–to–use guide available for understanding physics and the physical world. Even if you don?t consider yourself a “science” person, this book helps make learning key concepts a pleasure, not a chore. Whether you need help in a course, want to review the basics for an exam, or simply have always been curious about such physical phenomena as energy, sound, electricity, light, and color, you?ve come to the right place! This fully up–to–date edition of Basic Physics: ? Has been tested, rewritten, and retested to ensure that you can teach yourself all about physics ? Requires no math––mathematical treatments and applications are included in optional sections so that you can choose either a mathematical or nonmathematical approach ? Lets you work at your own pace with a helpful question–and–answer format ? Lists objectives for each chapter––you can skip ahead or find extra help if you need it ? Reinforces what you learn with end–of–chapter self–tests

Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics (6th edition)
Paul Tipler’s Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics has set the standard in introductory physics courses for clarity, accuracy, and precision. The sixth edition offers a completely integrated text and media solution that will enable students to learn most effectively and professors to teach most efficiently. The text includes a new strategic problem-solving approach, an integrated Math Tutorial, and new tools to improve conceptual understanding. New ‘Physics Spotlights’ feature cutting-edge topics that help students relate what they are learning to real world technologies.
Synergetics and Fractals in Tribology
This book examines the theoretical and practical aspects of tribological process using synergy, fractal and multifractal methods, and the fractal and multifractal models of self-similar tribosystems developed on their basis. It provides a comprehensive analysis of their effectiveness, and also considers the method of flicker noise spectroscopy with detailed parameterization of surface roughness friction. All models, problems and solutions are taken and tested on the set of real-life examples of oil-gas industry. The book is intended for researchers, graduate students and engineers specialising in the field of tribology, and also for senior students of technical colleges.

Applied Spectroscopy: A Compact Reference for Practitioners
This book delineates practical, tested, general methods for ultraviolet, visible, and infrared spectrometry in clear language for novice users, and serves as a reference resource for advanced spectroscopists. Applied Spectroscopy includes important information and equations which will be referred to regularly. The book emphasizes reflectance and color measurements due to their common usage in todays spectroscopic laboratories, and contains methods for selectinga measurement technique as well as solar and color measurements. Written by experts in the field, this text covers spectrometry of new materials, ceramics, and textiles, and provides an appendix of practical reference data for spectrometry.
Polymorphism in Molecular Crystals
Polymorphism – the multiplicity of structures or forms – is a term that is used in many disciplines. In chemistry it refers to the existence of more than one crystal structure for a particular chemical substance. The properties of a substance are determined by its composition and by its structure.
