Fundamentals of Physics is a component of Encyclopedia of Physical Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The Theme on Fundamentals of Physics provides an overview of the modern areas in physics, most of which had been crystallized in the 20th century, is given. The Theme on Fundamentals of Physics deals, in three volumes and cover several topics, with a myriad of issues of great relevance to our world such as: Historical Review of Elementary Concepts in Physics; Laws of Physical Systems; Particles and Fields; Quantum Systems; Order and Disorder in Nature; Topical Review: Nuclear Processes, which are then expanded into multiple subtopics, each as a chapter.

These three volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.

José L. Mora-Lopez, was born in Charcas, San Luis Potosí, Mexico in 1950. His main scientific interests are the physicochemical properties of nanostructures materials. Other interests are phase transitions in low dimensional and confined systems, Education: M.Sc. Center for Research and Advanced Studies, Mexico City (1974)Doctor Rerum Naturalium, Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany (1977)Posdoc at University of California, Berkeley, USAProfessor at the Institute for Scientific and Technological Research in San Luis Potosi, MexicoGeneral Director of the Institute for Scientific and Technological Research in San Luis Potosi, MexicoJohn Simon Guggenheim Fellow (USA) 1984-1985Fellow, International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, 1985-1991Senior Associate, International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, 1992-1997.Alexander von Humboldt Fellow (Germany) 1992-1993.American Physical Society Fellow, 1993Member of the Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), 1991
