Most widely held works by Richard Phillips Feynman
The Feynman lectures on physics by Richard P Feynman( Book )

8 editions published between 1964 and 1979 in English and French and held by 22 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
The character of physical law by Richard P Feynman( Book )

3 editions published between 1967 and 2008 in English and German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like any set of oral reflections, The Character of Physical Law has special value as a demonstration of the mind in action. The reader is particularly lucky in Richard Feynman. One of the most eminent and imaginative modern physicists, he was Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology until his death in 1988. He is best known for his work on the quantum theory of the electromagnetic field, as well as for his later research in the field of low-temperature physics. In 1954 he received the Albert Einstein Award for his outstanding contribution to knowledge in mathematical and physical sciences; in 1965 he was appointed to Foreign Membership in the Royal Society and was awarded the Nobel Prize
Quantum electrodynamics : a lecture note and reprint volume by Richard P Feynman( Book )

QED : die seltsame Theorie d. Lichts u.d. Materie by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mitte der achtziger Jahre des letzten Jahrhunderts hält Richard P. Feynman eine Vorlesungsreihe über die Quantenelektrodynamik (QED). Nicht nur ist er einer der wichtigsten Physiker des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts, er hat für seine Beiträge auf diesem Gebiet der Physik auch den Nobelpreis erhalten. Da sollte man doch erwarten, dass ein Buch, das nach diesen Vorlesungen entsteht, hoch kompliziert, trocken und nur für eine Handvoll Fachleute verständlich wäre. Aber es ist alles andere als das: Feynman erklärt mit Alltagsbeispielen, umwerfendem Humor, schnoddrigen Formulierungen und verblüffenden Sichtweisen eine Theorie, die dem "gesunden Menschenverstand" völlig zuwider läuft. Und das so, dass auch Laien ihm zumindest einen Teil des Weges folgen können. Aber warum auch nicht? Schließlich besteht die Methode der Quantenelektrodynamik nach Feynman eigentlich nur darin, "dass wir lauter kleine Pfeile auf ein Blatt Papier zeichnen". Mithilfe dieser "kleinen Pfeile" kann man tatsächlich alle Lichtphänomene berechnen und erklären - zum Beispiel die Brechung des Lichts im Wasser, die Reflexion von Glas und Luftspiegelungen. Doch damit nicht genug: Drei Grundvorgänge, in denen Photonen und Elektronen die Hauptrollen spielen, reichen aus, um fast alle Naturphänomene zu erklären. Doch die enorme Bedeutung der Quantenelektrodynamik ist nur ein Grund, Feynman auf seiner spannenden Reise durch diese bizarre Welt zu folgen. Der andere ist schlicht und einfach der, dass man in diesem Buch von einem der bedeutendsten Physiker großartig unterhalten wird
La nature de la physique by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réimpression de ##La nature des lois physiques## dans lequel Feynman, l'un des plus grands physiciens de notre temps, traite du développement des sciences physiques et médite sur leur caractère. La loi de la gravitation, les principes de conservation, la symétrie des lois, la probabilité et l'incertitude figurent alors parmi les thèmes abordés. Le ton est direct, le style humoristique. Viennent s'ajouter deux conférences (##Qu'est-ce que la science##? et ##Conférence Nobel##) et un entretien "où Feynman développe une conception stimulante du rôle éducatif et culturel de la science, et des problèmes de sa diffusion".

Feynman lectures on computation by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feynman's philosophy of learning and discovery comes through strongly in these lectures. He constantly points out the benefits of playing around with concepts and working out solutions to problems on your own - before looking at the back of the book for the answers. As Feynman says in the lectures: "If you keep proving stuff that others have done, getting confidence, increasing the complexities of your solutions - for the fun of it - then one day you'll turn around and discover that nobody actually did that one! And that's the way to become a computer scientist."
Richard Feynman : Leben und Werk des genialen Physikers by James Gleick( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a brilliant interweaving of Richard Feynman's colourful life and a detailed and accessible account of his theories and experiments - nearly half a century of which amount to no less than the story of modern physics itself
What do YOU care what other people think? : further adventures of a curious character by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life
"Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" : adventures of a curious character by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, Richard Feynman was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, but he was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safecracker, practical joker and storyteller, Feynman's life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal skepticism. Over a period of years, Feynman's conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton were first taped and then set down as they appear here, little changed from their spoken form, giving a wise, funny, passionate and totally honest self-portrait of one of the greatest men of our age

Elementary particles and the laws of physics : the 1986 Dirac memorial lectures by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Perhaps the two most important conceptual breakthroughs in twentieth century physics are relativity and quantum mechanics. Developing a theory that combines the two seamlessly is a difficult and ongoing challenge. This accessible book contains intriguing explorations of this theme by the distinguished physicists Richard Feynman and Steven Weinberg. Richard Feynman's contribution examines the nature of antiparticles, and in particular the relationship between quantum spin and statistics. In his essay, Steven Weinberg speculates on how Einstein's theory of gravitation might be reconciled with quantum theory in the final laws of physics. Both these Nobel laureates have made huge contributions to fundamental research in physics, as well as to the popularization of science. Anyone interested in the development of modern physics will find this a fascinating book
Six easy pieces : essentials of physics, explained by its most brilliant teacher by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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

1 edition published in 1996 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A New York Times bestseller?the outrageous exploits of one of this century's greatest scientific minds and a legendary American original. Richard Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. Here he recounts in his inimitable voice his experience trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek; cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets; accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums; painting a naked female toreador. In short, here is Feynman's life in all its eccentric?a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah
