Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? From astrophysics to condensed matter theory, nearly all of modern physics employs the path integral technique. In this presentation, the developer of path integrals and one of the best-known scientists of all time, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard P.

Feynman, presents unique insights into this method and its applications. Avoiding dense, complicated descriptions, Feynman articulates his celebrated theory in a clear, concise manner, maintaining a perfect balance between mathematics and physics. This emended edition of the original publication corrects hundreds of typographical errors and recasts many equations for clearer comprehension.

It retains the original's verve and spirit, and it is approved and endorsed by the Feynman family. The opening chapters explore the fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics and introduce path integrals.

Subsequent chapters cover more advanced topics, including the perturbation method, quantum electrodynamics, and the relation of path integrals to statistical mechanics.

In addition to its merit as a text for graduate courses in physics, this volume serves as an excellent resource for professionals. Read more Read less. Frequently bought together.

About the Author Richard Feynman received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics. One of the best-known scientists of his generation, Feynman assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a prominent member of the panel that investigated the Challenger disaster.

Hibbs studied for his doctorate under Feynman's tutelage and transcribed and edited Feynman's lectures in quantum electrodynamics.

Daniel F. Styer holds a Ph. Richard P. Feynman: The Scientist's Scientist One of the most famous scientists of the twentieth century, and an inexhaustible source of wonderful quotes, Richard Feynman shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga for his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics. Hibbs first published Quantum Mechanics and Path Integrals, which Dover reprinted in a new edition comprehensively emended by Daniel F.

Styer in In the Author's Own Words: "Our freedom to doubt was born out of a struggle against authority in the early days of science. It was a very deep and strong struggle. It is our responsibility as scientists to proclaim the value of this freedom; to teach how doubt is not to be feared but welcomed and discussed; and to demand this freedom as our duty to all coming generations.

Feynman and Hibbs not only develop quantum mechanics from scratch, but in doing so they also explain how path integrals work. This edition has been revised, so many errors that appeared before were corrected, and there is an appendix full of insightful notes. Totally worth your time and money. I would also suggest the QED, of the same scientist, to facilitate understanding Book gives convincing background as to Path integral applications.

I strongly recommend those whom get this book to also look at Feynman's PhD dissertation which explains the origins of the derivational approach, i. Put this reference together with the Feynman PhD dissertation, and a physics person has a complete record as to the origins AND the applications of Feynman's enduring gift to physics.

From the master himself. However, this book, unlike Feynman's popular books or his lectures on physics, is written very differently. It does not shy from mathematics and details. This is helpful for a graduate level course. Most Feynman books are excellent; this one is no exception. The content and delivery are both very well done. In his typical fashion, Feynman gives the reader a feel for the physical intuition behind path integrals in QM as well as alternate ways to deriving the same result.

But I dont think this should be one's primary text on the subject. For many sections of this book, I would recommend for myself at least a more vanilla companion text along with this book to familiarize oneself with the underlying math and more routine 'techniques'. This text, in my opinion, serves two great needs: 1 give beginners in the path integral approach an intuitive understanding of the topic, so that he 'understands' what he's doing while solving equations; and 2 give the experienced reader insights into the physical interpretations of the math.

It would also be more convenient to have this text on the Kindle, in a more modern typeset, but that doesnt seem likely.. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web.
