Product Description

Review

"This third edition of this definitive source of information in the physical sciences includes nearly 800 articles that provide overviews of 16 general subject areas. All of the articles contain an outline of their contents, a glossary of terms, and references. In addition to the usual subject index, this edition has both a Relational Index and a Thematic Index." -JOURNAL AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY "The third edition of this encyclopedia has been expanded, adding nearly 300 new articles... Each article provides a comprehensive overview of the topic, including definitions of key terms, diagrams and illustrations, see also references, and a bibliography. The index provides three useful entry points. ...articles are well written, and there is no other encyclopedia of physical sciences that reaches the depth of this one. It will meet most of the needs of students and general readers. For academic and larger public libraries." -CHOICE "The EPST is a splendid tool for new approaches, taking account of advances in topics which are generally considered being far away from each other, but which can be of mutual support." -JEAN CARPENTIER, OFFICE NATIONAL D' ETUDES ET DE RECHERCHES AEROSPATIALES, FRANCE
