Electromagnetism by
John C Slater(
Book
)
65 editions published between 1947 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Clearly developed from first principles, this introductory study supplies basic material on electrostatics and magnetostatics, then concentrates on electromagnetic theory  the authors are both leading men in the field. The book ranges freely over many areas of electromagnetic theory with some concern for electrical engineering. It covers the field theory of electromagnetism, electrostatics and the equations and theorems of Gauss, Poisson, Laplace and Green, solutions of Laplace's equation, dielectrics, magnetic fields of linear and circular currents, electromagnetic induction and Maxwell's equations, electromagnetic waves, electron theory, wave guides and cavity resonators, spherical electromagnetic waves, Huygen's principle and Green's theorem, and Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction. Practice problems are supplied at chapter ends. Physicists and engineers will find this presentation particularly useful; but mathematicians have also used the book not only as an introduction to electromagnetism, but also as a means to an increased knowledge of the aims and tools of theoretical physics. The only background required to follow the development is a knowledge of the calculus and differential equations. More advanced mathematics is developed in appendixes

Introduction to chemical physics by
John C Slater(
Book
)
64 editions published between 1939 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is unfortunate that physics and chemistry ever were separated. Chemistry is the science of atoms and of the way they combine. Physics deals with the interatomic forces and with the largescale properties of matter resulting from those forces. So long as chemistry was largely empirical and physics had not learned how to treat smallscale atomic forces, the two sciences seemed widely separated. But with statistical mechanics and the kinetic theory on the one hand, and physical chemistry on the other, the two sciences began to come together. Now that statistical mechanics has led to quantum theory and wave mechanics, there is nothing really separating them anymore. This book is organized around three sections. Part I covers thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and kinetic theory. Part II, Gases, liquids and solids. And Part III covers atoms, molecules, and the structure of matter

Concepts and development of quantum physics by

14 editions published between 1955 and 1969 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book [Professor John C. Slater] presents historically the development of the ideas which contribute to the current understanding of atomic and molecular physics, and particularly of quantum mechanics. The text consistently stresses the descriptive rather than the theoretical, and for this reason it will be useful to a wide audience."Back cover
