From Newton to Mandelbrot takes the student on a tour of the most important landmarks of theoretical physics: classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics, relativity, electrodynamics, and, the most modern and exciting of all, the physics of fractals. The treatment is confined to the essentials of each area, and short computer programs, numerous problems, and beautiful colour illustrations round off this unusual textbook. Ideally suited for a one-year course in theoretical physics it will prove indispensable in preparing and revising for exams.
