In summary, Springer currently has a 50% off sale until the end of December. Suggestions for good physics books from Springer at the undergraduate level include Chen's "Plasma Physics," Courant and Friedrichs' "Supersonic Flows and Shock Waves," Greiner's textbook series, Schwabl's two quantum books, Adler's new General Relativity book, and Travis Norsen's "Foundations of QM." For more advanced topics, V. Balakrishnan's "Mathematical Physics" and "Elements of Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics," as well as Gourgoulhon's "Special Relativity in General Frames," are recommended for those with a background in differential geometry. Other useful texts include Hassani's "Math

Most of my Springer books are specialist, but here are some suggestions:

Chen Plasma Physics

Courant And Friedrichs Supersonic Flows and Shock Waves

Greiner’s books

I‘ve heard good things about Schwabl’s two quantum books.

I haven’t seen it, but Adler came out with a new General Relativity book.

In case you want an advanced special relativity book (definitely not undergraduate)

Is this book accessible to someone who has never studied SR in depth but who has studied the other major branches (QM,SM,CM,EM) of physics at the grad level (and who has studied math at the level of e.g. Baby Rudin and Axler)? I came across it and it looks great but want to make sure it's not too much.Frabjous said:

If you studied also differential geometry at this level, the book should be accessible.EE18 said:Is this book accessible to someone who has never studied SR in depth but who has studied the other major branches (QM,SM,CM,EM) of physics at the grad level (and who has studied math at the level of e.g. Baby Rudin and Axler)?

Mathematical Physics by S. Hassani

It almost includes all the mathematics you would meet in Physics.

Some popular titles for good physics books from Springer at the undergraduate level include "University Physics" by Young and Freedman, "Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday and Resnick, and "Introduction to Electrodynamics" by Griffiths.

Yes, these books are designed for introductory physics courses at the undergraduate level and are suitable for students with little to no prior knowledge of the subject.

Yes, these books cover a wide range of topics including mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and modern physics.

Many of these books come with online resources such as practice problems, interactive simulations, and additional learning materials.

While these books are commonly used in classroom settings, they can also be used for self-study by motivated individuals who want to learn physics at the undergraduate level.
