My professor used this book for a modern physics courses

Ships from and sold by WhitePaperBlackInk. My professor used this book for a modern physics courses. The book is decent, but the downfall is that Krane does not provide enough theory/mathematical derivations of the equations to truly understand the concepts. His derivation of the Schrodinger equation was pathetic. This is disappointing because the physics is mathematically beautiful. All the material before then (Ch 5) was pretty good.

Kenneth S. Krane is Professor of Physics (Emeritus) at Oregon State University, where he has served on the faculty since 1974, including 14 years as Department Chair.

This book contains a nice and in-depth overview of almost all aspects of modern physics. It is well written and comprehensive even for a second-year undergraduate physics student, who has already passed some basic physics and calculus courses. Each chapter comes along with helpful examples and a good series of questions and problems at the end. If you like physics, you should have this textbook in your library!

This product is obviously better used in a Modern Physics college course context. That being said, the material is fascinating and this textbook does it justice. There are detailed examples to illustrate all the points made by the authors, and plenty of exercises to test your understanding of the material. This is a great book for instructors looking to teach Modern Physics, and great for neophytes who just want to learn about the subject.

Keep in mind that a strong background in mathematics is not required to follow this. More numerically detailed options are available but they are more technically difficult.

Extremely satisfied! Thank you.

All figures are rendered as grey rectangles with rounded edges.

"Like new" doesn't mean there's writing inside the book. At least it was the right book. The book content itself is pretty difficult. It assumes you either have a decent initial understanding of physics or that you can very quickly comprehend what it puts forth.

Overall not a bad textbook, the topics expected are well covered for the most part. My largest complaint would be that the book contains a lot of historical "filler" material, much of it not particularly relevant to the subject at hand. Also, the author has a very bad habit of simply skipping crucial and complex mathematical steps in the solved examples. It often reads as we start with equation A, then some magic happens, and we get equation B. This would probably be fine in a graduate level book, but for a book that is being used by students who have probably taken calculus only a couple of semesters ago, this can make some of the math in the book very hard to follow.

Additionally, and it may just be that I got a bad copy, within less than 3 months of normal use, the binding at the spine has begun to come apart. I don't know if this is endemic with the printer involved, or whether I just got unlucky, but this is a fairly expensive book to only have a 3 month life span.

Really good, for a physics book.
Very clear explanations. Beautiful pictures and diagrams.
Very easy to read.
Good book. Very decent rental price.
