  • The Feynman Lectures on Physics (Richard P. Feynman, et al.)

    Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as general relativity and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight.

  • Principles of Mechanics: Fundamental University Physics

    This textbook takes the reader step-by-step through the concepts of mechanics in a clear and detailed manner. Many proofs and examples are included to help the reader grasp the fundamentals fully, paving the way to deal with more advanced topics.

  • Structure and Interpretation of Classical Mechanics

    This innovative textbook concentrates on developing general methods for studying the behavior of classical systems. It focuses on the phenomenon of motion and makes extensive use of computer simulation in its explorations of the topic.

  • Variational Principles in Classical Mechanics (Douglas Cline)

    This book introduces variational principles and their application to classical mechanics. The relative merits of the intuitive Newtonian vectorial formulation, and the more powerful variational formulations are compared.

  • Lecture Notes on Classical Mechanics (Sunil Golwala)

    You will learn a variety of new techniques and formalism that will allow you to attack a wider set of problems than you saw in the introductory sequences, more unified understanding of the structure and fundamental principles of classical physics.

  • The Physics of Quantum Mechanics (James Binney, et al.)

    This book aims to give students a good understanding of how quantum mechanics describes the material world. It shows that the theory follows naturally from the use of probability amplitudes to derive probabilities.

  • The Key to Newton's Dynamics (J. Bruce Brackenridge)

    This book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion, sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective, showing the works of both Descartes and Galileo.

  • Statistical Mechanics of Lattice Systems: Mathematical Introduction

    This motivating textbook gives a friendly, rigorous introduction to fundamental concepts in equilibrium statistical mechanics, covering a selection of specific models, including the Curie–Weiss and Ising models, the Gaussian free field, etc.

  • Relativity: The Special and General Theory (Albert Einstein)

    The great physicist himself disclaimed this exclusionary view, and in this book, he explains both theories in their simplest and most intelligible form for the layman not versed in the mathematical foundations of theoretical physics.
