Title: The encyclopedia of physics. Third edition

Abstract

This encyclopedia contains 350 articles which have been selected to give adequate representation to all branches of the subject, with emphasis on new and sophisticated concepts. A special feature of this encyclopedia is its arrangement of material. Articles on the main divisions of physics are written for readers with little background in the subject, articles on subdivisions are aimed at those with more knowledge, and articles on finer division are geared to users with farily sound backgrounds in physics and mathematics. Among the topics given new or expanded coverage are gauge theories, quantum chromodynamics, electroweak theory, and grand unified theories. Readers will also find new information on particle theory, biomedical instrumentation, molecular biology, quarks and pulsars, laser fusion, and volcanology.
