Newton's bold masterwork helped shaped the cultural landscape of the world today. Now in a digestible, pocket format for the modern reader.

New concise edition with a new introduction, abridged for the modern reader. The Principia. Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy is one of the most important scientific works ever to have been written and has had a profound impact on modern science. Consisting of three separate books, the Principia states Newton's laws of motion and Newton's law of universal gravitation. Understanding and acceptance of these theories was not immediate, however by the end of the seventeenth century no one could deny that Newton had far exceeded all previous works and revolutionised scientific thinking.

The FLAME TREE Foundations series features core publications which together have shaped the cultural landscape of the modern world, with cutting-edge research distilled into pocket guides designed to be both accessible and informative.

About this Author

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was an English physicist and mathematician who was a leading figure in the scientific revolution. His work throughout the seventeenth century provided the basis for modern science, including his three laws of motion and the law of universal gravitation. Newton's career was prolific. He was president of the Royal Society and in 1705 he was knighted, becoming the first ever scientist to receive the honour.

Kirill Krasnov (introduction) is a Professor of Mathematical Physics at the University of Nottingham. He received a BSc in Physics from Kiev T. Schevchenko University in 1994 and a PhD in Physics from Pennsylvania State University in 1999. He has held Postdoctoral positions at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, Potsdam. He has been the recipient of the prestigious EPSRC Advanced Fellowship and the ERC Consolidator Grant. Krasnov is most known for his work on black hole entropy within the loop approach to quantum gravity, work on spin foam models of quantum gravity, as well as work on the renormalized volume of hyperbolic 3-manifolds.

Professor Marika Taylor (series foreword) is a Professor of Theoretical Physics and Head of School within Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton. Her research interests include all aspects of string theory, gravitational physics and quantum field theory. In recent years much of her work has been focused on holographic dualities and their implications. Marika's research has featured in such publications as Physical Review, Journal of High Energy Physics and General Relativity and Gravitation among others.
