The New Millennium Edition
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 authorized
by the California Institute of Technology.
