●Chapters 15, “Modern Astrophysics and General Relativity” and 16, "Cosmology," reflect the latest research and findings.
●The discussion on gravitational waves has been greatly expanded to include the recent detections and subsequent electromagnetic detections, and the discussions on dark matter and dark energy have been updated to include the most up-to-date observations and theories.
●The latest research into the age of the universe has been added to help students understand the theories and controversies physicists continue to debate.
●New coverage of the important contributions to physics of additional female scientists, including Emmy Noether, Rosalyn Yalow, Annie Jump Cannon, and Henrietta Leavitt, has been added, as well as the contributions of the computers at the Harvard Observatory and NASA.
●The latest information on the Higgs boson brings students up to date on this significant research area of physics research and theory.

●Special Topic boxes are up-to-date applications of interest to physicists and engineers. These features show the relevance of modern physics to the real world and give students a more in-depth look at particularly engaging topics such as exoplanets, the "Age of the Earth," neutrino detection, and scanning probe microscopes.
●A flexible organization makes the book appropriate for a one- or two-term course. The authors begin by laying the historical groundwork for modern physics and then provide in-depth coverage of relativity and quantum mechanics. They devote the latter part of the book to the sub-fields of physics (atomic, condensed matter, nuclear, and particle) along with general relativity and cosmology. This organization gives students a solid foundation early in the book, and gives you the option to enhance your teaching with additional topics of your choosing.
●Blue margin notes and end-of-chapter summaries give students a quick overview of topics covered in the chapter and help guide them to important concepts for easy review.
●A large number of examples, including Conceptual Examples, give students ample practice applying the book's theories,. Examples feature a Strategy step, which helps students identify the essential steps in problem solving and improve their problem-solving skills.
●Blue margin notes **ARE THESE STILL BLUE IN THE MTR/NEW PRINT LAYOUT? ARE THEY MARGIN NOTES OR WERE THEY CHANGED AS PART OF THE STRUCTURAL ALTERATIONS FOR THE MTR-CENTRIC DESIGN?** and End-of-chapter summaries give students a quick overview of topics covered in the chapter and help guide students to important concepts for easy review.
●Throughout the text, a focus on the history of physics offers a human perspective and helps students understand the context in which scientific advancements have been made.
●End-of-chapter problems include over 200 questions and more than 700 problems, providing you with ample material from which to select homework assignments without repeating the same problems every year. More challenging problems are flagged to help students gauge their progress from easier to harder problems.
●Short biographical features highlight the achievements of physicists throughout history to illustrate the importance of individual ingenuity in advancing knowledge in the field.

Stephen Thornton is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Virginia. He has published over 130 research articles in experimental nuclear physics and has done research at several accelerator facilities in the United States and Europe. He has directed research for 25 graduate students and has held two U.S. Senior Fulbright-Hays Fellowships and a Max-Planck Fellowship to do research at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany on two occasions. He was the founding Director of the University of Virginia Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics. He has published three college textbooks for physics: "Classical Dynamics," "Modern Physics, " and "Physics for Scientists and Engineers. He was Director of the Master of Arts in Physics Education program at the University of Virginia, which has graduated more than 150 high school physics teachers. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a member of several organizations including American Association of Physics Teachers, American Association for the Advancement of Science, National Science Teachers Association, Virginia Association of Science Teachers (past President), and the Virginia Math and Science Coalition. He was awarded the Pegram Award by the Southeastern Section of the American Physical Society for “Excellence in Physics Education in the Southeast.” He has developed multiple courses for undergraduate students and high school physics teachers.
Andrew Rex has been Professor of Physics at the University of Puget Sound since 1982. He frequently teaches the Modern Physics course, so he has a deep sense of student and instructor challenges. He is the author of several textbooks, including "Modern Physics," "Essential College Physics," "Integrated Physics and Calculus," and "Finn's Thermal Physics, Third Edition." In addition to textbook writing, he studies foundations of the second law of thermodynamics, which has led to the publication of several papers and the widely acclaimed book, "Maxwell's Demon: Entropy, Information, Computing." He has also written the general-audience book "Commonly Asked Questions in Physics."
Carol Hood is an Associate Professor of Physics at California State University, San Bernardino, a primarily undergraduate Hispanic serving institution. In addition to teaching Modern Physics and other introductory and advanced physics courses, she has spent significant time in the past few years redesigning program curriculum and courses throughout the undergraduate physics and general education levels. Her research focuses on the growth of active galactic nuclei over cosmic time and faculty development in STEM pedagogy. Dr. Hood is the Co-Director of the southern portion of Cal-Bridge, a state-wide scholarship and mentoring program for California State University students designed to increase minority participation in physics and astronomy Ph.D. programs, in particular to the University of California.
