Used these classic texts as a freshman physics major at New Mexico Tech. Very challenging books, but provide insights into the world of physics and the workings of the great mind of Richard Feynman!
Thomas A Wiebe
Feyman's lectures on physics are the first place I go to when reviewing fundamental physics; they are typically clear and accessible. The mathematics are at the level of basic calculus for the most part, which is also welcome; even one long rusty on the specifics of calculus can still remember the basics and particularly appreciate the expressive power of Newton's employment of Occam's Razor in the form of mathematical tools used to describe the change inherent in dynamical physical models.

This is an excellent set of physics lectures. Feynman was very talented at right to heart of the matter and making everything seem obvious.

Richard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle physics (he proposed the parton model). For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Pr ...more

“The attempts to try to represent the electric field as the motion of some kind of gear wheels, or in terms of lines, or of stresses in some kind of material have used up more effort of physicists than it would have taken simply to get the right answers about electrodynamics. It is interesting that the correct equations for the behavior of light were worked out by MacCullagh in 1839. But people said to him: 'Yes, but there is no real material whose mechanical properties could possibly satisfy those equations, and since light is an oscillation that must vibrate in something, we cannot believe this abstract equation business'.” 2 likes
