Basic Knowledge

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


This is an introductory chapter which sets up some basic definitions we shall need throughout the book. We shall also introduce some elementary concepts (some of which will be refined and generalised later on in forthcoming chapters) and derive simple formulae which the reader may well be familiar with; however, it is convenient to have everything we will need under “one roof”. Hence the content of this chapter will enable the reader to work on the forthcoming chapters without the need of consulting other texts or web pages, and should make the book more or less self-contained.
