Summary

Addressing modern physics in its largest perspective, the present volume, which includes 34 contributions, begins with a reappraisal of classical science. However, the stress is placed on the contemporary period with sections devoted to thermodynamics and mechanics, the centenary of the electron, Einstein, the quantum theory and particle physics.
