This edition published in by Worth Publishers in New York, N.Y.

Written in English

1078 pages

I attended Oakland University (OU) as an undergraduate and graduate student, and post-grad researcher from 1981-1988. Paul A. Tipler, PhD, was a tenured, full Professor of Physics there for many years, his last year overlapping the first part of my time-interval there. He then went to Berkeley, CA. Dr. Tipler had a great personality and enjoyed discussing various topics with students.

As a grad student, I purchased a copy this (2nd) edition of Dr. Tipler's book when it came out, to tutor students in Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering. This is a Calculus-based Physics text used for teaching two semesters of introductory, Calculus-based Physics. It is approximately 1000 pages long, and is excellently-written with colored diagrams and historic photos, to accompany the text describing the topics covered. The equations are well-derived.
It uses the SI metric system of units, and has answers to most odd-numbered problems in the back of the book. Mark G. Scheuern, a colleague of mine who also received his B.S. and M.S. Degrees in Physics from OU, solved the even-numbered problems for Dr. Tipler, and his answers were published in a separate "Solutions Manual". Dr. Tipler's book is very detailed, easy to read, and provides students and professors with a great reference for introductory, Calculus-based Physics. I highly recommend text books written by Dr. Paul A. Tipler, especially his textbook on Modern Physics, covering Special Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, etc.
