READ as many books as you like (Personal use). This book proposes a new formulation of the main concepts of Theoretical Physics. Rather than offering an interpretation based on exotic physical assumptions (additional dimension, new particle.

During the s he was active in the nuclear freeze movement, which sought to end the further production of nuclear weapons.

Among his books are The Laws of Nature (), Surprises in Theoretical Physics (), and More Surprises in Theoretical Physics (). Theoretical physics is a branch of physics that employs mathematical models and abstractions of physical objects and systems to rationalize, explain and predict natural is in contrast to experimental physics, which uses experimental tools to probe these phenomena.

The advancement of science generally depends on the interplay between experimental studies and theory. This physics textbook is designed to support my personal teaching activities at Duke University, in particular teaching its Physics /, /, or / series (Introduc-tory Physics for life science majors, engineers, or potential physics majors, respectively).

Two similar books that I have read are Surprises in Theoretical Physics and More Surprises in Theoretical Physics by Rudolf Peierls. From the Preface This book was written for senior schoolchildren and presents a series of physical paradoxes and sophisms differing in theme and complexity.

This book is a comprehensive account of five extended modules covering the key branches of twentieth-century theoretical physics, taught by the author over a period of three decades to students on bachelor and master university degree courses in both physics and theoretical physics.

Professor Peierls does not suggest, however, that theoretical physics is a hazardous game in which one can never foresee the surprises a detailed calculation might reveal.

Rather, he contends, all the surprises discussed have rational explanations, most of which are very simple, at least in : $The book then goes on to provide a critical evaluation of advanced subjects in modern cosmology and theoretical physics.

Topics covered include the origin of the universe, warped spacetime, cosmological singularities, quantum gravity, black holes, string theory, quantum cosmology and inflation.Problems in theoretical physics often lead to paradoxical answers; yet closer reasoning and a more complete analysis invariably lead to the resolution of the paradox.

This work is based on the author's lectures at the University of Washington in the spring of and at the Institut de Physique Nucleaire, University de Paris-Sud, Orsay.
