Introduction to Theoretical Physics
by John C. Slater, Nathaniel H. Frank
Publisher: McGraw-Hill 1933
Number of pages: 597
Two general principles have determined the order of presenting the material: mathematical difficulty, and order of historical development. Mechanics and problems of oscillations, involving ordinary differential equations and simple vector analysis, come first. Then follow vibrations and wave motion, introducing partial differential equations which can be solved by separation of variables, and Fourier series. Hydrodynamics, electromagnetic theory, and optics bring in more general partial differential equations, potential theory, and differential vector operations. Wave mechanics uses almost all the mathematical machinery which has been developed in the earlier part of the book.

The chief aim of this book in all of its editions has been to present elementary physics in such a way as to stimulate the pupil to do some thinking on his own account about the hows and whys of the physical world in which he lives.

The practical side of the subject has been emphasized throughout. This method will sustain interest in the subject by showing its applications. More space than usual has been devoted to Force, Torque, Translatory Motion, and Rotary Motion.
