Feynman Lectures On Gravitation (Frontiers in Physics)

Buy

During the 1962-63 academic year, Richard Feynman taught a course at Caltech on gravitation. Taking an untraditional approach to the subject, Feynman aimed the course at advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who were familiar with the methods of relativistic quantum field theory-in particular, with Feynman-diagram perturbation theory in quantum electrodynamics. Two of the postdocs, Fernando B. Morinigo and William G. Wagner, wrote up notes for the course. These were typed, and copies were sold in the Caltech bookstore for many years.

The notes were not published, but they were widely distributed, and because of their unique insights into the foundations of physics, they had a significant influence on many of the people who read them. Morinigo and Wagner performed a great service by preserving so well this piece of Feynman's legacy. Now, thanks to the efforts of Brian Hatfield, the lectures are finally being published in this volume, and so are becoming readily available to a broader audience and to posterity. In preparing the notes for publication, Hatfield has corrected minor errors and improved the notation, but otherwise has adhered to the original typescript prepared by Morinigo and Wagner.
