| April 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

Christoph Schiller, born in 1960, is a physicist raised in Varese. He studied physics at the Universität Stuttgart and received his Ph.D. in physics at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.  He thinks that exploring and applying physics can provide as much pleasure as anything else in life. That’s why he started the project of creating a unique and highly informative free Physics textbook.  The result of this project is this great free book called “Motion Mountain”.

As the author believes,  Physics is a science with worst textbooks, that’s one of the main reasons    why he started writing the book. By producing a simple, captivating and up-to-date introduction    to modern physics author seeks to popularize Physics and help the students. ‘Simple’ means that concepts are stressed more than formalism; ‘captivating’ means that the reader is continuously entertained, motivated and challenged; ‘up-to-date’ means that modern research results are included. Volumes of the book include:

1) Fall, Flow And Heat

2) Relativity

3) Light, Charges and Brains

4) The Quantum of Change

5) Pleasure, Technology and Stars

6) The Strand Model – a Speculation of Unification
