GeographyBook Description: The compilation work for “GEOGRAPHY THROUGH MAPS” was the outcome of the difficulty felt by many students in understanding the basics of Geography, who asked very simple questions and whose answers and explanations, were lacking in any book. The book is an attempt for the whole mankind to let it know the complex world with its natural features and phenomena. The concept is to make the world our own by knowing all its part clearly. The book is a hard worked compilation of all the relevant information at one place. The aim and the sincere effort is to make useful contributions to all those students for whom Geography and knowing places still remains a difficult proposition. The maps used are not true to scale but they are meant to guide every reader of this book to locate places and to obtain important information about them. The picture of the whole world has been presented in a sequential manner so that at no point the reader finds it monotonous, dull and uninteresting. The book contains an exhaustive glossary to help the students to know about the places in short cut manner. Glossary of locations of the world and India is exhastively incorporated An appendix is also provided which contains facts and recent data of India and the world-updated till March 2013. This book is useful for UPSC aspirants for both GS and Geography optional, for PT as well as Mains. Contents of the Book WORLD EUROPE World Continent Europe Political Waters of the world Europe Physical World’s Mountain Ranges AUSTRALIA AND OCEANIA Great Deserts of the world POLAR AREAS NORTH AMERICA Antarctic and Arctic North America Political ASIA Canada Politica Asia Political United States of America Asia Physical North America Physical World’s Thematic Map MIDDLE AMERICA INDIA SOUTH AMERICA India Political South America Political India’s Neighboring Countries South America Physical India Physical India’s Thematic Map.

principles-of-quantum-mechanicsBook Description:  R. Shankar has introduced major additions and updated key presentations in this second edition of Principles of Quantum Mechanics. New features of this innovative text include an entirely rewritten mathematical introduction, a discussion of Time-reversal invariance, and extensive coverage of a variety of path integrals and their applications. Additional highlights include:

- Clear, accessible treatment of underlying mathematics

- A review of Newtonian, Lagrangian, and Hamiltonian mechanics

- Student understanding of quantum theory is enhanced by separate treatment of mathematical theorems and physical postulates

- Unsurpassed coverage of path integrals and their relevance in contemporary physics

The requisite text for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students, Principles of Quantum Mechanics, Second Edition is fully referenced and is supported by many exercises and solutions. The book’s self-contained chapters also make it suitable for independent study as well as for courses in applied disciplines.

The Physics of Vibrations And Waves

6th Ed

physics of vibrations & wavesBook Description: The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propagation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of wave and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and redesigned to give it a more contemporary look. It includes new material on electron waves in solids using the Kronig-Penney model to show how their allowed energies are limited to Brillouin zones. The role of phonons is also discussed. An Optical Transfer Function is used to demonstrate the modern method of lens testing. In the last two chapters the sections on chaos and solutions have been reduced but their essential contents remain. As with earlier editions, the book has a large number of problems together with hints on how to solve them. The transmission of energy by wave propagation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics and is the basis for almost all types of communication. This book reflects this by providing students with a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations and, at the same time, demonstrating the pattern and unity of a large part of physics.
