About the book
Reviews
Lerato ★★★★★
This book is so good. It covers all the basics, the fundamental principles which are key in the engineering world. The fact that it has solutions to the given problems makes it more great.
Description
The genesis behind writing a textbook in calculusbased physics stemmed from the fact that most existing textbooks are too detailed and voluminous. In writing this book, the author has minimized inconsequential details and only concentrated on physics concepts. The balance among different components of the book was also paramount. The author has avoided citing too many unwarranted examples and homework problems which create a fatigue environment for the student. This book provides an excellent foundation in physics for the students majoring in science and engineering.

About the Author
The Author, Ali R. Fazely, attended Oklahoma State University, where he received the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1975. In 1977, he received a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering also from Oklahoma State University. In 1980, he received a Master of Arts in Physics from Kent State University. He received his Ph.D. in Experimental Intermediate Nuclear Physics from Kent State University in 1982. After a brief stay as a postdoctoral researcher at Kent, he accepted a postdoctoral position at the Louisiana State University in February 1983. He participated in several Nuclear and Particle Physics experiments at the Los Alamos National Laboratory as a participant and as a spokesperson, where he was a visiting scientist from LSU between 1984 and 1990. In 1990, he moved back to LSU as a Research Assistant Professor and in 1991, he accepted an Associate Professor position at Southern University where he established the High Energy and Astrophysics Group. He has over 30 years of teaching Physics at both undergraduate and graduate levels. He has over 500 publications in Particle Physics, Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics. His interest is to study the structure of the universe using neutrinos as cosmic messengers and various properties of the neutrino and overlap of science and religion.
