Reviews of Modern Physics has been created exactly with that scope, as you can see in the link. Feynman's article on the path integral approach, for example, was published on this journal. Physics Reports is similar to Rev. Mod. Phys. albeit the article submission is by invitation only. Reports on Progress in Physics is another one.
I think two great reviews on the topic (cited by almost any paper on the matter) are: M. Z. Hasan and C. L. Kane, Colloquium: Topological insulators, Rev. Mod. Phys. 82, 3045 (2010); X.-L. Qi and S.-C. Zhang, Topological insulators and superconductors, Rev. Mod. Phys. 83, 1057 (2011);
There is a book on the topic: B. Andrei Bernevig, Taylor L. Hughes: Topological Insulators and Topological Superconductors, Princeton University Press (2013).
I would like to suggest the book I am folfollowing presently-NCERT 11th Grade CChemsitry.It explains in an intuitive and interesting way the basics of QM. It is free for download on ncert.nic.in MIT opencourseware provides neat lectures. Ted-ed is amazing too (but I prefer MIT ocw). For mathematics-you can get great content on Khanacademy.org Regards,do ...
Introduction to Plasma Physics by Francis Chen is probably one of the best sources for introductory plasma physics, despite being slightly dated (publication date of 1995) and using CGS units. It covers, among other things, particle motions in E&M fields plasmas as fluids (e.g., MHD) plasmas as particles (kinetic theory) controlled fusion As a ...
Have you tried Samuel Wong's book "Introductory Nuclear Physics"? I used in for both undergraduate and graduate nuclear physics and found it very useful. It seemed to have less handwaving than many other traditional texts.
The American Association Institute of Physics (AIP; the parent organization of the APS and AAPT among others) publishes The Physics Teacher, which publishes articles on pedagogy and exposition. Their blurb reads: Dedicated to the strengthening of the teaching of introductory physics at all levels, The Physics Teacher provides peer-reviewed materials to ...
I came across this one recently. It had a good chapter on stress and strain with a lot of derivation. Coming from Physics, not Engineering, it was a good primer. Lots of equations, derivations and prose. Polymer Engineering Science and Viscoelasticity: An Introduction By Hal F. Brinson, L. Catherine Brinson http://www.springer.com/us/book/9781489974846 ...
Most any quantum mechanics textbook will discuss molecular resonances. The classic book on molecular resonant frequencies is Spectra of diatomic molecules by Gerhard Herzberg. For larger molecules, you will want to consult Infrared and Raman spectra of polyatomic molecules, also by G. Herzberg. As for the microwave issue, the second link that you cite, ...
