458 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 16 languages and held by 4,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of Feynman's legendary lectures includes extensive corrections Feynman and his colleagues received and Caltech approved, making this the definitive edition of "The Feynman Lectures on Physics." Dr. Feynman won his Nobel Prize for successfully resolving problems with the theory of quantum electrodynamics
Six easy pieces : essentials of physics, explained by its most brilliant teacher by Richard P Feynman( Book )

43 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents six of the easiest chapters from the Nobel Prize winner's celebrated text Lectures in Physics, originally published in 1963, which comprised the lectures he prepared for undergraduate students at Caltech in the early 1960s. Addressing key topics in largely qualitative terms without formal mathematics, the six selections discuss atoms in motion, basic physics, the relation of physics to other sciences, conservation of energy, the theory of gravitation, and quantum behavior
Principles of modern physics by Robert B Leighton( Book )

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

10 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 453 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.

Today the Feynman Lectures are considered by many to be the best introductory set of lectures on physics ever written. Feynman himself, however, stated in his original preface that he was "pessimistic" with regard to the success with which he reached all of his students. The Feynman lectures were written "to maintain the interest of very enthusiastic and rather smart students coming out of high schools and into Cal Tech." Feynman was targeting the lectures to students who, "at the end of two years of our previous course, [were] very discouraged because there were really very few grand, new, modern ideas presented to them." As a result, some physics students find the lectures more valuable after they obtain a good grasp of physics by studying more traditional texts. Many professional physicists refer to the lectures at various points in their careers to refresh their minds with regard to basic principles
