Recent Advances in Physics (non-atomic)

F. H. Newman

Price: £11.00

F. H. Newman is best known for his joint authorship with G. F. C. Searle of their long-running textbook on 'Properties of Matter'.  His less well-known book here on recent advances in Physics is an interesting work that hightlights aspects of the advances in Physics largely not covered in popular books of similar vintage by Thomson, Jeans, Eddington and others.  Newman does cover electron diffraction but particularly emphasises areas of physics that have practical importance such as thermo-electric phenomena, high vacuum techniques, acoustics and echo-sounding, low-temperature physics, X-ray diffraction, magnetic properties of matter, propagation of electromagnetic waves and superconductivity.  Almost every subject he discusses would turn out to underpin significant technical avances in the 20th century, making this work an interesting summary of science for the technically minded historian.
