Abstract

(1) ENGINEERING students too often look upon physics as little more than a necessary evil, and a book that connects the scientific aspects of the subject with its modern practical applications fills a real need. The authors of this volume-one an engineer and the other a physicist are to be congratulated on the successful way in which they have accomplished this task.
