A Radically Modern Approach to Introductory Physics
This book was published under the GFDL, and is a good resource. Since it is under the GFDL, material can be harvested from it, and adapted for this wikibook:
- A Radically Modern Approach to Introductory Physics is a Creative Commons physics text written by David J. Raymond of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
This textbook aims to cover every aspect of modern physics at an undergraduate level in such a manner that anyone who is literate, and not frightened of math, should be able to understand and use it. It can be used to add new material to the Modern Physics book.
The following templates were created for this book, for the purposes of providing a standardized navigational system. These two templates should be used at the top of every section page, or at the top of every chapter, respectively:
Other sections can also be altered to have their own navigational templates, as needed. This template is used to denote
Some pages are stubs, and new pages may become stubs. To ensure that stubs are found and expanded, they should be marked. To mark a stub, you should use the following template:
This will put a little notice in the section that it is a stub, and will add the page to the following category:
All current stub pages are listed in that category, and new users should become familiar with it.
All pages and templates in this book should belong to the following category:
The navigation templates automatically add a page to this category, so any page that doesn't have an appropriate navigation template won't be included in this category. Templates can be added to this category manually.
