Hellow everyone,

I've just sat my final A-level physics exam and next year its university for me, I'll be studying theoretical physics.

I am looking into the following phenomenae - in a tad more detail as curious general interest;

1. Newton's Corpuscular theory of light ( I know its not right but I'm interested on how he came up with it and the math he supported his theory with).

2. Photoelectric Emission (The kinetic energy of emitted electrons is dependant on the frequency of light and not intensity, experimentally has been proven, what's the mathematics and theory behind it?)

3. CP violation ( What are the theories and mathematical calculations used to determine the symmetries?)

4. Hadron specrtroscopy

I am interested in both the physics and the math associated with the phenomenae I have mentioned, I've been trying to look them up on the net however since its such a vast resource of info, one hardly finds what they want.

I would be extremely grateful if anyone here can give me resources, net based or books on how to proceed with finding more about what I have mentioned.

One last favour, can I have a list of reccomended books for first year theoretical physics courses so that I can have a good idea of what I'm going to explore next year.

Thanks a lot everyone.

Regards,

Yousif
