Most widely held works by Julian Schwinger
Einstein's legacy : the unity of space and time by Julian Schwinger( Book )

Tells the story of the theory of relativity and modern research
Classical electrodynamics by Julian Schwinger( )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text for the graduate classical electrodynamics course was left unfinished upon Julian Schwinger's death in 1994, but was completed by his coauthors, who have brilliantly recreated the excitement of Schwinger's novel approach. Classical Electrodynamics captures Schwinger's inimitable lecturing style, in which everything flows inexorably from what has gone before. An essential resource for both physicists and their students, the book includes a "Reader's Guide", which describes the major themes in each chapter, suggests a possible path through the book, and identifies topics for inclusion
Quantum kinematics and dynamics by Julian Schwinger( )

A quantum legacy : seminal papers of Julian Schwinger by Julian Schwinger( )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Schwinger (1918-94) contributed to a broad range of topics in theoretical physics, from classical electrodynamics to quantum mechanics. This volume includes many of his most important papers

Quantum mechanics : symbolism of atomic measurements by Julian Schwinger( Book )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Schwinger, who shared the 1965 Nobel Prize for physics with Richard Feynman and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga for his pioneering work on quantum electrodynamics, had a considerable influence on the conceptual development of modern quantum field theory. In addition to being an extremely productive researcher he was also a brilliant teacher, and this book demonstrates his outstanding ability to expose a difficult subject in a clear and concise style. In marked contrast to many textbooks on quantum physics, the whole of quantum kinematics and the underlying quantum action principle, which now bears his name, are derived through a systematic analysis of experimental phenomena, thus avoiding the ad hoc postulates of the axiomatic approach. Many applications, all worked out in detail, follow and culminate in an introduction to quantum electrodynamics. A unique legacy, these lecture notes of Schwingers course held at the University of California at Los Angeles were carefully edited by his former collaborator Berthold-Georg Englert and constitute both a self-contained textbook on quantum mechanics and an indispensable source of reference on this fundamental subject by one of the foremost thinkers of twentieth century physics
Electromagnetic radiation : variational methods, waveguides and accelerators : including seminal papers of Julian Schwinger by K. A Milton( )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a graduate level textbook on the theory of electromagnetic radiation and its application to waveguides, transmission lines, accelerator physics and synchrotron radiation. It has grown out of lectures and manuscripts by Julian Schwinger prepared during the war at MIT's Radiation Laboratory, updated with material developed by Schwinger at UCLA in the 1970s and 1980s, and by Milton at the University of Oklahoma since 1994. The book includes a great number of straight-forward and challenging exercises and problems. It is addressed to students in physics, electrical engineering, and applied mathematics seeking a thorough introduction to electromagnetism with emphasis on radiation theory and its applications. A hardcover edition containing additionally the reprints of more than 15 papers by Schwinger on these topics is available separately. Book jacket."--Jacket
Particles and sources by Julian Schwinger( Book )

15 editions published in 1969 in English and Italian and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discontinuities in waveguides; notes on lectures by Julian Schwinger by Julian Schwinger( Book )

Climbing the mountain : the scientific biography of Julian Schwinger by K. A Milton( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Schwinger was one of the leading theoretical physicists of the twentieth century. His contributions are as important, and as pervasive, as those of Richard Feynman, with whom (and with Sin-itiro Tomonaga) he shared the 1965 Nobel Prize for Physics. Yet, while Feynman is universally recognized as a cultural icon, Schwinger is little known even to many within the physics community. This biography aims to describe Schwinger's life and research contributions to a wider audience." "This biography describes the many strands of his research life, while tracing the personal life of this private and gentle genius."--Jacket
Themes in contemporary physics II : essays in honour of Julian Schwinger's 70th birthday( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 1989 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Particles, sources, and fields by Julian Schwinger( Book )

25 editions published between 1970 and 2018 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An extension of Dr. Schwinger's two previous classic works, this volume contains four sections in addition to the previous sections of Electrodynamics II, which were concerned with the two-particle problem, and applications to hydrogenic atoms, positronium, and muonium
Particles, sources and fields by Julian Schwinger( Book )

29 editions published between 1973 and 2018 in English and Italian and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On angular momentum by Julian Schwinger( Book )

14 editions published between 1952 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise treatment of angular momentum by an important American physicist, this major work was first published under the auspices of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in 1952 and is finally available to a general audience of students and professionals in the field. Advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics will particularly benefit from its teachings. One of the most prominent American physicists of the twentieth century, Julian Schwinger (1918-94) taught at Harvard, MIT, and UCLA, among other institutions. In addition to his many other awards, Schwinger, jointly with Richard Feynman and Shinichiro Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 for his work in quantum electrodynamics
