This text aims to present a contemporary approach to nonclassical physics, focusing the student on relevant material with less emphasis on non-essential earlier theories. The text covers the basics while also providing optional, marked, self-contained sections and exercises, both at the same level as the main text and at a more advanced level. Explanations on the basic terms are offered, centering on the main ideas, and special progress and applications sections discuss advances, lingering mysteries and important applications related to chapter material. A range of problems, from easy to advanced, help students test their understanding, and boxed essays explain points of particular interest or address more complex ideas touched on in the main text.Does Gravity Really Affect Time? Is time really passing slower on Eartha#39;s surface than in the surrounding space, or is it just that gravity interferes with the behavior of light sources, clocks, and so on? In introductory physics we learn that time isanbsp;...
