Most widely held works by Robert B Leighton
The Feynman lectures on physics by Richard Phillips Feynman( Book )

254 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 3,838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

T[hese] books [are] based upon a course of lectures in introductory physics given by Prof. R.P. Feynman at the California Institute of Technology during the academic year 1961-1962; it covers the first year of the two year introductory course taken by all Caltech freshmen and sophormores, and was followed in 1962-63 by a similar series covering the second year
Six easy pieces : essentials of physics, explained by its most brilliant teacher by Richard Phillips Feynman( Book )

49 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and held by 3,435 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 )

26 editions published between 1909 and 1974 in English and Japanese and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

13 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 477 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"--Page 4 of cover
The Feynman lectures on physics by Richard Phillips Feynman( Book )

OPTIMIZED FOR READING ON TABLETS: volume 3 of the Feynman Lectures on Physics
The Feynman lectures on physics by Richard Phillips Feynman( )

100 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This three-volume work was originally designed for a two-year introductory physics course given at the California Institute of Technology-a course designed to take advantage of students' increasing mathematical prowess and to provide a more comprehensive view of modern-day physics. The volumes are an edited version of Richard Feynman's lectures, taped and transcribed specifically for the books. It was a rigorous undertaking that resulted in a classic reference work for all physics students, teachers, and researchers. Feynman's effective classroom style remains intact in these volumes, a valuable work by a remarkable educator
Vorlesungen über Physik by Richard Phillips Feynman( Book )

26 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in German and English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six not-so-easy pieces : Einstein's relativity, symmetry, and space-time by Richard P Feynman( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 347 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. In Six Not-So-Easy Pieces, taken from these famous lectures, Feynman delves into one of the most revolutionary discoveries in twentieth-century physics: Einstein's theory of relativity. The idea that the flow of time is not constant, that the mass of an object depends on its velocity, and that the speed of light is a constant no matter what the motion of the observer, at first seemed shocking to scientists and laymen alike. But as Feynman shows, these tricky ideas are not merely dry principles of physics, but things of beauty and elegance. No one--not even Einstein himself--explained these difficult, anti-intuitive concepts more clearly, or with more verve and gusto, than Richard Feynman. Filled with wonderful examples and clever illustrations, Six Not-So-Easy Pieces is the ideal introduction to fundamentals of physics by one of the most admired and accessible physicists of all times
