Book Title: The Physics of High Pressure

Author: P.W. Bridgman

Book Description:

This text has been an invaluable guide for me and my research group as we explored the behavior of diesel fuels within diesel fuel injection systems. Bridgman provides excellent descriptions of why different molecular structures lead to different behavior under pressure. It was only after reading his book, while reading an article on the "metallic" hydrogen that exists in the core of stars, that I found out that Bridgman had won the Nobel Prize for his work on the physics of high pressure. Apparently, many people have rediscovered recently the contributions that Bridgman made.
