Matter and motion by
James Clerk Maxwell(
Book
)
40 editions published between 1920 and 2002 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Published posthumously in 1888, this treatise by the first Cavendish Professor of Physics at Cambridge explores and explains the fundamental principles and laws that are the basis of elementary physics. Maxwell was at the forefront of physics and mathematics during the nineteenth century and his pioneering work brought together existing ideas to give 'a dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field'. This work inspired not only the applications of electromagnetic waves like fibre optics but also Einstein's theory of relativity. The text explains many of Newton's laws and the unifying concepts that govern a body and its motion. The increment in the complexity of topics allows one to build a solid understanding of the accepted laws of mathematical physics that explain topics like force, work, energy and the centre mass point of a material system. This logical guide and instruction is as timeless as the laws of physics that it explains

Science and hypothesis by
Henri Poincaré(
Book
)
18 editions published between 1905 and 1952 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is Poincaré's famous discussion of creative psychology as it is revealed in the physical sciences. Explaining how such basic concepts as number and magnitude, space and force were developed, the great French mathematician refutes the skeptical position that modern scientific method and its results are wholly factitious. The places of rigorous logic and intuitive leaps are both established by an analysis of contrasting methods of ideacreation in individuals and in modern scientific traditions. The nature of hypothesis and the role of probability are investigated with all of Poincaré's usual fertility of insight. Partial contents: On the nature of mathematical reasoning. Magnitude and experiment. Space: nonEuclidean geometrics, space and geometry, experiment and geometry. Force: classical mechanics, relative and absolute motion, energy and thermodynamics. Nature: hypotheses in physics, the theories of modern physics, the calculus of probabilities, optics and electricity, electrodynamics. "Poincaré's was the last man to take practically all mathematics, both pure and applied as his province. Few mathematicians have had the breadth of philosophic vision that Poincaré's had, and none is his superior in the gift of clear exposition." {u2014} Men of Mathematics, Eric Temple Bell, Professor of Mathematics, University of Cambridge

Memoir and Scientific Correspondence of the Late Sir George Gabriel Stokes, Bart. Selected and Arranged by Joseph Larmor by
George Gabriel Stokes(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1907 and 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge and President of the Royal Society, Sir George Gabriel Stokes (18191904) made substantial contributions to the fields of fluid dynamics, optics, physics, and geodesy, in which numerous discoveries still bear his name. The Memoir and Scientific Correspondence of the Late Sir George Gabriel Stokes, Bart., edited by Joseph Larmor, offers rare insight into this capacious scientific mind, with letters attesting to the careful, engaged experimentation that earned him international acclaim. Volume 1 (1907) includes a memoir  culled from the reminiscences of family, friends, and colleagues  and letters, including early correspondence with Lady Stokes during the time of their engagement and early marriage. Professional correspondence covers Stokes' discoveries in the areas of spectroscopy, fluorescence, and colour vision. The result is an intimate portrait of a brilliant mathematician  both in the early stages of his career and at the height of his intellectual powers
