Dear reader,

This document contains a 108 page \(\rm\LaTeX\) file which contains a lot equations in physics. It is written at advanced undergraduate/postgraduate level. It is intended to be a short reference for anyone who works with physics and often needs to look up equations.

This, and a Dutch version of this file, can be obtained from the author, Johan Wevers johanw@xs4all.nl.

It can also be obtained on the WWW. See http://www.xs4all.nl/~johanw/index.html, where \(\rm\LaTeX\), html, Postscript and PDF versions are available.

If you find any errors or have any comments, please let me know. I am always open for suggestions and possible corrections to the physics formulary.
