Six easy pieces : essentials of physics, explained by its most brilliant teacher by Richard P Feynman( Book )

48 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and held by 2,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was Feynman's outrageous and scintillating method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics. From 1961 to 1963, Feynman delivered a series of lectures at the California Institute of Technology that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world. 'Six Not-So-Easy Pieces', taken from these famous 'Lectures on Physics' represent some the most stimulating material from the series. In these classic lessons, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, basic physics, energy, gravitation, quantum mechanics, and the relationship of physics to other topics ..."--Page 4 of cover
Principles of modern physics by Robert B Leighton( Book )

26 editions published between 1909 and 1974 in English and Japanese and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feynman's tips on physics : a problem-solving supplement to the Feynman lectures on physics by Richard P Feynman( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With characteristic flair, insight, and humor, Feynman discusses topics physics students often struggle with and offers valuable tips on addressing them. Included here are three lectures on problem-solving and a lecture on inertial guidance omitted from The Feynman Lectures on Physics. An enlightening memoir by Matthew Sands and oral history interviews with Feynman and his Caltech colleagues provide firsthand accounts of the origins of Feynman's landmark lecture series"--P.

Exercices pour le Cours de physique de Feynman : 900 exercices corrigés by Richard P Feynman( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combined into one volume for the first time, the updated and clarified Exercises for the Feynman Lectures on Physics provides comprehensive, hands-on practice in all the most important areas of physics{u2014}from Newtonian mechanics through the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. A perfect complement to The Feynman Lectures on Physics, these exercises have all been assigned in Caltech{u2019}s mandatory two-year introductory physics course, either when Richard Feynman was teaching it, or during the nearly two decades that followed when The Feynman Lectures on Physics was used as the textbook. With this modern, easy-to-use volume, students of physics will have a chance to apply what they have learned in the Lectures and to enhance and reinforce the concepts taught by the inimitable Richard Feynman
