Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In these classic lectures, Richard Feynman first considers the basic ideas of quantum mechanics, treating the concept of amplitude in special detail and emphasizing that other things, such as the combination laws of angular momenta, are largely consequences of this concept. Feynman also discusses relativity and the idea of anti-particles, finally returning to a discussion of quantum electrodynamics, which takes up most of this volume.<P>"The entire treatment is of a refreshingly aristocratic simplicity...the book is ideal and most desirable reading to follow almost any conventional introduction to field theory. Not the least of its advantages is that it affords a little insight into the manner in which a creative mind works in this field". — Mathematical Reviews

Synopsis:

Feynman treats the concept of amplitude in special detail, discusses relativity, and then moves on to quantum electrodynamics, which takes up most of this volume.
