About the Book-

The eighteenth edition of this well-known and properly defined textbook continues to provide a thorough understanding of the principles of modern physics. It offers a detailed presentation of important topics such as atomic physics, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, solid state physics and electronics. The concepts are exhaustively presented with numerous examples and diagrams which would help the students in analysing and retaining the concepts in an effective manner. This textbook is a useful resource for undergraduate students and will also serve as a reference text for postgraduate students.

Key Features-

• Comprehensive and focused coverage on Quantum Mechanics with an enhanced discussion on Dirac Notation under the chapter on Operator Formalism
• Extensively revised, Semiconductor Devices comprehensively discusses topics such as Frequency Modulation and Operational Amplifiers as well as covers new topics such as FM Transmitter and FM Receiver
• Discussion on relevant topics such as Classical Mechanics and Mathematical Physics under Theoretical Physics 
• Over 700 questions provided to test and strengthen students' understanding of the different concepts
