Feynman's thesis : a new approach to quantum theory by
Richard P Feynman(
Book
)
26 editions published between 1942 and 2010 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Richard Feynman's never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled "The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics," its original motive was to quantize the classical actionatadistance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall spacetime viewpoint, the classical Hamiltonian approach used in the conventional formulations of quantum theory could not be used, so Feynman turned to the Lagrangian function and the principle of least action as his points of departure." "The result was the path integral approach, which satisfied  and transcended  its original motivation, and has enjoyed great success in renormalized quantum field theory, including the derivation of the ubiquitous Feynman diagrams for elementary particles. Path integrals have many other applications, including atomic, molecular, and nuclear scattering, statistical mechanics, quantum liquids and solids, Brownian motion, and noise theory. It also sheds new light on fundamental issues like the interpretation of quantum theory because of its new overall spacetime viewpoint."Jacket

Renormalization : from Lorentz to Landau (and beyond) by
Laurie M Brown(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in this book, by L.M. Brown, M. Dresden, R.S. Mills, S.S. Schweber, T.Y. Cao, and D.V. Shirkov, discuss the history of renormalization theory from the late 19th century to the 1950s and the effect it has had not only on the development of field theory, but also on our ideas of what is a fundamental and what is a phenomenological theory

The rise of the standard model : particle physics in the 1960s and 1970s by
Lillian Hoddeson(
Book
)
2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on a conference held at Stanford University, this is the third volume of a series recounting the history of particle physics and offers the most uptodate account of the rise of the Standard Model, which explains the microstructure of the world in terms of quarks and leptons and their interactions. The wideranging articles explore the detailed scientific experiments, the institutional settings in which they took place, and the ways in which the many details of the puzzle fit together to account for the Standard Model
