Classical Mechanics

3rd edition


Herbert Goldstein ; Charles P. Poole and John Safko

Publisher: Pearson Education

ISBN: 9788131758915

Acc. No.: 73076          Call No.: 531 G618



Book Description: For 30 years, this classic text has been the acknowledged standard in classical mechanics courses. Classical Mechanics enables students to make connections between classical and modern physics an indispensable part of a physicist s education. The authors have updated the topics, applications, and notations to reflect today s physics curriculum. They introduce students to the increasingly important role that nonlinearities play in contemporary applications of classical mechanics. New numerical exercises help students develop skills in the use of computer techniques to solve problems in physics. Mathematical techniques are presented in detail so that the text remains fully accessible to students who have not had an intermediate course in classical mechanics.

The Cambridge Companion to Scottish Literature


Edited by Gerard Carruthers and Liam McIlvanney

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9780521189361

Acc. No.: 73269                Call No. : 820.9941 C311


Book Description: Scotland’s rich literary tradition is a product of its unique culture and landscape, as well as of its long history of inclusion and resistance to the United Kingdom. Scottish literature includes masterpieces in three languages – English, Scots and Gaelic – and global perspectives from the diaspora of Scots all over the world. This Companion offers a unique introduction, guide and reference work for students and readers of Scottish literature from the pre-medieval period to the post-devolution present. Essays focus on key periods and movements (the Scottish Enlightenment, Scottish Romanticism, the Scottish Renaissance), genres (the historical novel, Scottish Gothic, ‘Tartan Noir’) and major authors (Burns, Scott, Stevenson, MacDiarmid and Spark). A chronology and guides to further reading in each chapter make this an ideal overview of a national literature that continues to develop its own distinctive style.

Electronic Devices and Circuits

5th edition


David A. Bell

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 9780195693409

Acc. No.: 73087                     Call No.: 621.3815 B433


Book Description: The fifth edition of Electronic Devices and circuits is designed for undergraduate engineering courses of electrical and electronics, instrumentation and control, and electronics and instrumentation. Earlier editions of this popular book already feature as one of the main recommended textbooks in several courses related to electronic devices and circuits of some of the major universities around the world. This edition offers a more complete coverage of the syllabuses of various universities, including those in India. Apart from a new chapter on active filters, this edition also covers circuit testing and troubleshooting methods, RC and LC power supply filters, tuned circuit amplifiers, and class C amplifiers. The book provides lucid explanations of the operation of all important electronic devices generally available today. Beginning with basic semiconductor and pn junction theory, the operation, characteristics, and parameters of each device are covered, and appropriate circuit applications are presented. Circuit design and analysis methods using the currently available devices and standard-value components are extensively treated.

Principles of Mathematics


Bertrand Russell

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 9780415487412

Acc. No.: 73539                   Call No.: 511 R961


Book Description: First published in 1903, Principles of Mathematics was Bertrand Russell’s first major work in print. It was this title which saw him begin his ascent towards eminence. In this groundbreaking and important work, Bertrand Russell argues that mathematics and logic are, in fact, identical and what is commonly called mathematics is simply later deductions from logical premises. Highly influential and engaging, this important work led to Russell’s dominance of analytical logic on western philosophy in the twentieth century.

The Cambridge Companion to Sensation Fiction


Edited by Andrew Mangham

Publisher: Cambridge University Press,  2013

ISBN : 978-0521157094

Acc. No. : 73281                Call No. : 823.809353 M277


Book Description: In 1859 the popular novelist Wilkie Collins wrote of a ghostly woman, dressed from head to toe in white garments, laying her cold, thin hand on the shoulder of a young man as he walked home late one evening. His novel The Woman in White became hugely successful and popularised a style of writing that came to be known as sensation fiction. This Companion highlights the energy, the impact and the inventiveness of the novels that were written in ‘sensational’ style, including the work of Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Mrs Henry Wood and Florence Marryat. It contains fifteen specially-commissioned essays and includes a chronology and a guide to further reading. Accessible yet rigorous, this Companion questions what influenced the shape and texture of the sensation novel, and what its repercussions were both in the nineteenth century and up to the present day.
