Most widely held works by D. K. C MacDonald
Faraday, Maxwell, and Kelvin by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )

25 editions published between 1964 and 1966 in English and Spanish and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three men of varied interest are conspicuous among 19th c. scientists. Mr. Macdonald relates their backgrounds, personalities & contributions to science. Michael Faraday discovered & developed the practical relationships governing the interaction of electricity & magnetism that formed the cornerstone for the electrical industry as well as radio & television. James C. Maxwell formulated the fundamental mathematical description of Farady's lab work. Wm. Thompson (Lord Kelvin) extended Faraday's & Maxwell's works & contributed to our understanding of heat. He helped formulate the Second Law of Thermodynamics
Near zero : an introduction to low temperature physics by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )

7 editions published between 1961 and 1965 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Absolute Zero ( -273.15 degrees Centigrade) is a state that can never be reached. Nevertheless in cooling things close to Absolute Zero the modern physicist learns much about the nature of matter and energy. Within a few degrees of Absolute Zero resistance vanishes, helium becomes a liquid, and atomic activity falls into a sort of super-hibernation. Near Zero is an engaging and authoritative introduction to a field of ever-increasing value to the physicist and the chemist."--Back cover
Thermoelectricity: an introduction to the principles by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )

21 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introductory treatment provides an understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles involved in the study of thermoelectricity in solids and of conduction in general. Aimed at graduate-level students and those interested in basic theory, it will be especially valuable to experimental physicists working in fields connected with electron transport and to theoreticians seeking a survey of thermoelectricity and related questions. Chronicling the early history of thermoelectricity from its discovery to modern times, this text features a considerable amount of experimental data and discusses these findings at length wherever they bear a particular relevance to theory. The author, a well-known authority in this field, draws heavily from his own work on thermoelectrical phenomena as they are observed in the study of metals. Numerous illustrative figures appear throughout the text
Introductory statistical mechanics for physicists by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )

23 editions published between 1963 and 2006 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers a clear and simple presentation of the principals of statistical mechanics. A concise introduction to statistical mechanics for physicists, of particular interest to students and professionals concerned with any branch of solid state or low temperature physics
Noise and fluctuations: an introduction by D. K. C MacDonald( Book )

26 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An understanding of fluctuations and their role is both useful and fundamental to the study of physics. This concise study of random processes offers graduate students and research physicists a survey that encompasses both the relationship of Brownian Movement with statistical mechanics and the problem of irreversible processes. It outlines the basics of the physics involved, without the strictures of mathematical rigor. The three-part treatment starts with a general survey of Brownian Movement, including electrical Brownian Movement and "shot-noise," Part two explores correlation, frequency spectrum, and distribution function, with particular focus on application to Brownian Movement. The final section examines noise in electric currents, including noise in vacuum tubes and a random rectangular current. Frequent footnotes amplify the text, along with an extensive selection of Appendixes
