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

9 editions published between 1964 and 1979 in 3 languages 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 )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in English and held by 5 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 )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the main results and calculational procedures of quantum electrodynamics in a simple and straightforward way
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."
Vom Wesen physikalischer Gesetze by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard P. Feynman gelingt es meisterhaft, darzulegen, welche allgemeinen Prinzipien hinter den Naturgesetzen stehen, die wir heute kennen. Studentinnen und Studenten in aller Welt benutzen diese berühmten "Feynman-Lectures", die einen ungewöhnlich gut durchdachten Querschnitt durch die Grundlagen der Physik bieten
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
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".

"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
The pleasure of finding things out : the best short works of Richard P. Feynman by Richard P Feynman( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A treasury of short writings by twentieth-century American physicist Richard Feynman, including interviews, speeches, lectures, and printed articles, in which he shares details of his private life, his work on the atomic bomb, and his conclusions on the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger
Principalmente sulla meccanica, radiazione, e calore by Richard P Feynman( 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
Quantum mechanics by Richard P Feynman( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Sei pezzi meno facili : relatività einsteniana, simmetria, spazio-tempo by Richard P Feynman( Book )

Feynman's lost lecture : the motion of planets around the sun by David L Goodstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The subject of Feynman's lecture was the watershed discovery that separated the ancient world from the modern world - the culmination of the Scientific Revolution. Before Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, and Newton, the universe was Earth-centered. After their discoveries, our idea of the universe steadily altered and expanded, moving outward to the infinity we try to understand in our own time. Thus Feynman deals here with a crowning achievement of the human mind, comparable to Beethoven's symphonies. Shakespeare's plays, or Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Feynman conclusively demonstrates the astonishing fact that has mystified and intrigued all deep thinkers since Newton's time: Nature obeys mathematics
