9780199670864 This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on mechanics or for selfstudy. There are a variety of problems ranging from exercises that verify parts of the text, moderately difficult calculations, to suggested research projects. Connections to other disciplines of mathematics and physics are emphasized. 

Chaos and Fractals: An Elementary Introduction£35.99 David P. Feldman
9780199566440 For students with a background in elementary algebra, this book provides a vivid introduction to the key phenomena and ideas of chaos and fractals, including the butterfly effect, strange attractors, fractal dimensions, Julia Sets and the Mandelbrot Set, power laws, and cellular automata. The book includes over 200 endofchapter exercises. 

Measurements and their Uncertainties: A practical guide to modern error analysis£21.99 Ifan Hughes, Thomas Hase
9780199566334 This short guide to modern error analysis is primarily intended to be used in undergraduate laboratories in the physical sciences. No prior knowledge of statistics is assumed. The necessary concepts are introduced where needed and illustrated graphically. The book emphasises the use of computers for error calculations and data fitting. 

Concepts in Thermal PhysicsSecond Edition £32.99 Stephen J. Blundell, Katherine M. Blundell

Nothing: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Frank Close
9780199225866 What is 'nothing'? What remains when you take all the matter away? Can empty space  a void  exist? This Very Short Introduction explores the science and history of the elusive void: from Aristotle's theories to black holes and quantum particles, and why the latest discoveries about the vacuum tell us extraordinary things about the cosmos. 

Relativity: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Russell Stannard
9780199236220 Einstein's theory of relativity shattered the world of physics  replacing Newtonian ideas of space and time with bizarre and counterintuitive conclusions: a world of slowing clocks and stretched space, black holes and curved spacetime. This Very Short Introduction explores and explains the theory in an accessible and understandable way. 

Four Laws That Drive the Universe£13.99 Peter Atkins
9780199232369 The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself  everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful and compelling introduction explains what the laws are and how they work. 

Chaos: A Very Short Introduction£8.99 Leonard Smith
9780192853783 Chaos exists in systems all around us. Even the simplest system can be subject to chaos, denying us accurate predictions of its behaviour, and sometimes giving rise to astonishing structures of largescale order. This Very Short Introduction draws in philosophy, literature, and accessible maths to explain and illuminate Chaos Theory, showing the variety of its fascinating applications in the real world  from technology to global warming, politics, and even gambling on the stock market.
