What would modern physics be without Stephen J. Hawking or Albert Einstein? Physics is an infinitely rewarding and fascinating field of study. More than 400 fully solved problems and clearly written information and exercises make Schaum's Outline of Modern Physics a great study guide for students and a supplement to most standard textbooks.
