Electrons and Waves: An Introduction to the Science of Electronics and Communication
Electrons and Waves An Introduction to the Science of Electronics and Communication Author:John R. Pierce Here is the first paperback edition of a classic introduction to the art and science of electronics, fully revised and updated by the author, John R. Pierce. For the general reader and the student, Dr. Pierce begins with an illuminating examination of the laws of physics that govern the motion of particles and waves. The author goes on to discus... more »s "Maxwell's Wonderful Equations," which describe the behavior of electrons in electrical and magnetic fields. Then Dr. Pierce explains transformers, vacuum tube amplifiers, traveling-wave tubes, and the transistors-all instruments basic to the art of generating, transmitting, and receiving signals and messages.
[We've come a long way, baby!] An interesting look back at the way things were, but electricity remains a mystery still. Great for age. Not yellowing appreciably.« less
