By Günter Ludyk

This ebook is an creation to the theories of targeted and normal Relativity. the objective viewers are physicists, engineers and utilized scientists who're searching for an comprehensible advent to the subject - with out an excessive amount of new arithmetic. the basic equations of Einstein's conception of specific and common Relativity are derived utilizing matrix calculus, with out assistance from tensors. this option makes the e-book targeted and a invaluable software for scientists and engineers without adventure within the box of tensor calculus. partially I the rules of specific Relativity are built, half II describes the constitution and precept of basic Relativity. half III explains the Schwarzschild answer of round physique gravity and examines the "Black gap" phenomenon. Any invaluable mathematical instruments are consumer pleasant supplied, both at once within the textual content or within the appendices.

Thermodynamik: Grundlagen und technische Anwendungen Band 1: Einstoffsysteme (Springer-Lehrbuch) (German Edition)

Dieses Grundlagenwerk der Thermodynamik erscheint schon nach kurzer Zeit in der 17. Auflage. Es wurden lediglich kleinere Korrekturen durchgeführt, da die sixteen. Auflage eine umfassende Neubearbeitung beinhaltete. Die Theorie der Thermodynamik wird systematisch entwickelt, wobei die zentrale Bedeutung der Bilanzierungen von Masse, Energie und Entropie in besonderer Weise herausgestellt wird.
