Overview

This new edition of the AIP Physics Desk Reference has been thoroughly updated and modernized to reflect new developments in the decade since the publication of the second edition. Data, references and bibliographies have been updated completely, and new chapters have been added on environmental physics, electricity and magnetism, elementary particle physics, fluid dynamics, nonlinear physics, particle accelerators, polymer physics, and quantum theory, as well as a concluding chapter on practical laboratory data. An indispensable tool for the researcher, professional and student, the AIP Physics Desk Reference provides concise compilation of the most frequently used data and formulae in physics, astrophysics, and related fields. This new edition: Is totally restructured and revised, with new contributors and editors Contains more than 40% more information than the previous edition Includes several completely new chapters on developing subfields Offers completely updated and expanded data, references, and bibliographies Has over 212 tables and 125 figures Includes a final chapter on techniques of acquiring and processing laboratory data. The editors are all well known for their involvement with physics reference works: E. Richard Cohen was the founding chairman of the CODATA Task Group on Fundamental Constants and for many years the chairman of the IUPAP Commission on Fundamental Constants, David Lide was the founding editor of the Journal of Physical and Chemical Reference Data, and George Trigg is an editor of the Encyclopedia of Physics and the Encyclopedia of Applied Physics. This is a major revision of a classic, best-selling reference. Originally published by the American Institute of Physics as the Physics Vade Mecum, this third edition has been completely updated to reflect current modern physics. It is a concise compilation of the most frequently used physics data and formulae with their derivations, and this edition conta
