Project Summary

The intent of this project is to provide a freely available, high quality, and contemporary physics textbook, which is suitable for non-calculus and calculus-based high school physics courses as well as introductory college level courses. The book will be written in LaTeX with charts and graphs written in Gnuplot when possible. All photographs and other images will be released under a license providing equal or greater freedom of usage as that of the license under which the entire project will be licensed. The output of this project will be in PDF and may include other formats as demand necessitates.
The content of this physics textbook will be consistent with other textbooks of the same scope including Newtonian physics, waves, light, thermodynamics, etc.. The source files and output will be written in American English, but may be translated into other languages as allowed by translation resources.
The project will initially be based upon the public domain book (published in 1906) "A First Course In Physics," which will be rewritten in LaTeX by the project's director. The resulting LaTeX rewrite will then be opened for others to modernize and expand. The number of others expected to regularly contribute to the project is approximately five. The people who are expected to contribute are physics teaches like myself and other physics professionals.
As of 2005.03.02 approximately 45% of "A First Course In Physics" has been transcribed into Latex.
