 Summary
 "The advent of accessible student computing packages has meant that geophysics students can now easily manipulate datasets and gain firsthand modeling experience  essential in developing an intuitive understanding of the physics of the Earth. Yet to gain a more indepth understanding of physical theory, and to develop new models and solutions, it is necessary to be able to derive the relevant equations from first principles. This compact, handy book fills a gap left by most modern geophysics textbooks, which generally do not have space to derive all of the important formulae, showing the intermediate steps. This guide presents full derivations for the classical equations of gravitation, gravity, tides, earth rotation, heat, geomagnetism and foundational seismology, illustrated with simple schematic diagrams. It supports students through the successive steps and explains the logical sequence of a derivation  facilitating selfstudy and helping students to tackle homework exercises and prepare for exams"
