The Physics of Superheroes by James Kakalios
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 6.9 MB
Overview: James Kakalios explores the scientific plausibility of the powers and feats of the most famous superheroes and discovers that in many cases the comic writers got their science surprisingly right. Along the way he provides an engaging and witty commentary while introducing the lay reader to both classic and cutting-edge concepts in physics, including:
What Superman’s strength can tell us about the Newtonian physics of force, mass, and acceleration
How Iceman’s and Storm’s powers illustrate the principles of thermal dynamics
The physics behind the death of Spider-Man’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy
Why physics professors gone bad are the most dangerous evil geniuses!

The Physics of Neutrinos by Vernon Barger, Danny Marfatia, Kerry Whisnant
Requirements: .PDF reader, 13 MB
Overview: The physics of neutrinos-uncharged elementary particles that are key to helping us better understand the nature of our universe-is one of the most exciting frontiers of modern science. This book provides a comprehensive overview of neutrino physics today and explores promising new avenues of inquiry that could lead to future breakthroughs.
The Physics of Neutrinos begins with a concise history of the field and a tutorial on the fundamental properties of neutrinos, and goes on to discuss how the three neutrino types interchange identities as they propagate from their sources to detectors. The book shows how studies of neutrinos produced by such phenomena as cosmic rays in the atmosphere and nuclear reactions in the solar interior provide striking evidence that neutrinos have mass, and it traces our astounding progress in deciphering the baffling experimental findings involving neutrinos. The discovery of neutrino mass offers the first indication of a new kind of physics that goes beyond the Standard Model of elementary particles, and this book considers the unanticipated patterns in the masses and mixings of neutrinos in the framework of proposed new theoretical models.
The Physics of Neutrinos maps out the ambitious future facilities and experiments that will advance our knowledge of neutrinos, and explains why the way forward in solving the outstanding questions in neutrino science will require the collective efforts of particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, and cosmology.

Physics Olympiad: Basic to Advanced Exercises by The Committee of Japan Physics Olympiad
Requirements: .PDF reader, 6 mb
Overview: This book contains some of the problems and solutions in the past domestic theoretical and experimental competitions in Japan for the International Physics Olympiad. Through the exercises, we aim at introducing the appeal and interest of modern physics to high-school students. In particular, the problems for the second-round of competition are like long journey of physics, beginning with fundamental physics of junior-high-school level, and ending with the forefronts of updated physics and technology.
