**About Of The Book :**

Basic Electronics for Scientists and Engineers, written by Dennis L. Eggleston, is a comprehensive guide for beginners in the field of electronics. This book is specifically designed for students who have little or no background in electronics and wish to learn the basics of electronic circuits and devices.

The book begins with an introduction to the fundamental principles of electricity and magnetism. The author then explains the basic components of electronic circuits such as resistors, capacitors, and inductors. He then goes on to explain how to analyze circuits using Kirchhoff’s laws and introduces circuit theorems like thevenin's theorem and Norton's theorem.

The book also covers various types of diodes and their applications, including rectifiers, zener diodes, and LEDs. The author then explains how transistors work and how they can be used to amplify and switch signals. The chapter on operational amplifiers (op-amps) is especially well-written and covers the basics of op-amp circuits, including inverting and non-inverting amplifiers, summing amplifiers, and differential amplifiers.

One of the strengths of this book is its clear and concise explanations of complex topics. The author uses examples and illustrations throughout the book to help the reader understand the concepts. The chapters are organized logically, and each chapter builds on the previous one, so the reader can easily follow the development of the subject.

Another advantage of Basic Electronics for Scientists and Engineers is the inclusion of numerous problems and exercises at the end of each chapter. These problems range from simple calculations to more complex circuit analysis problems. Solutions to the problems are provided at the end of the book, so the reader can check their work.

In conclusion, Basic Electronics for Scientists and Engineers is an excellent resource for anyone interested in learning the basics of electronics. The book is written in a clear and concise style, and the numerous examples and illustrations make it easy to understand even the most complex topics. The inclusion of problems and exercises at the end of each chapter is a valuable addition that helps the reader apply the concepts they have learned. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about electronics.

“Basic Electronics for Scientists and Engineers by Dennis Eggleston is an example of how the most important material in the introduction to electronics can be presented within a one-semester time frame. The text is written in a nice logical sequence and is beneficial for students majoring in all areas of Natural Science. In addition, many examples and detailed introductions of all equations allow this course to be taught to students of different backgrounds – sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Overall, the

effort of the author is thrilling and, definitely, this text will be popular among many instructors and students.”

Anatoliy Glushchenko, Department of Physics and Energy Science, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs “This text is an excellent choice for undergraduates majoring in physics. It covers

the basics, running from passive components through diodes, transistors, and op-amps to digital electronics. This makes it self-contained and a one-stop reference for the student. A brief treatment of the semiconductor physics of silicon devices provides a good basis for understanding the mathematical models of their behavior and the end-of-chapter problems help with the learning process. The concise and sequential nature of the book makes it easier to teach (and study) from than the venerable but

somewhat overwhelming Art of Electronics by Horowitz and Hill.”

David Hanna, W C Macdonald Professor of Physics, McGill University “I have been frustrated in the past by my inability to find a suitable book for a one-semester Electronics course that starts with analog and progresses to basic digital circuits. Most available books seem to be out of date or aimed at electrical engineers rather than scientists. Eggleston’s book is exactly what I was looking for – a basic

course ideal for science students needing a practical introduction to electronics. Written concisely and clearly, the book emphasizes many practical applications, but with a sufficient theoretical explanation so that the results don’t simply appear out of thin air.”
