Timeless and collectible, "The Feynman Lectures on Physics "are essential reading, not just for students of physics, but for anyone seeking an insightful introduction to the field from the inimitable Richard P. Feynman. "When I look at "The Feynman Lectures on Physics," I feel a very personal sense of closeness to them," said Feynman, looking back on the origins of these books. Ranging from basic Newtonian dynamics through such formidable theories as Einstein's relativity, Maxwell's electrodynamics, and Dirac's forumulation of quantum mechanics, these collected lectures stand as a monument to clear exposition and deep insight--and to Feynman's deep connection with the field. Originally delivered to students at Caltech and later fashioned by co-authors Robert B. Leighton and Matthew Sands into a unique textbook, the celebrated "Feynman Lectures on Physics "allows us to experience one of the twentieth century's greatest minds. This new edition features improved typography, figures, and indexes, with corrections authorizedby the California Institute of Technology.

Read information about the authorRichard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle physics (he proposed the parton model). For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, together with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. Feynman developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams. During his lifetime and after his death, Feynman became one of the most publicly known scientists in the world.
He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a member of the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. In addition to his work in theoretical physics, Feynman has been credited with pioneering the field of quantum computing, and introducing the concept of nanotechnology (creation of devices at the molecular scale). He held the Richard Chace Tolman professorship in theoretical physics at Caltech.
