Most widely held works by Julian Schwinger
Einstein's legacy : the unity of space and time by Julian Schwinger( Book )
33 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tells the story of the theory of relativity and modern research
Quantum kinematics and dynamics by Julian Schwinger( )
29 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Classical electrodynamics ( )
13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text for the graduate classical electrodynamics course was left unfinished upon Julian Schwinger's death in 1994, but was completed by his coauthors, who have brilliantly recreated the excitement of Schwinger's novel approach. Classical Electrodynamics captures Schwinger's inimitable lecturing style, in which everything flows inexorably from what has gone before. An essential resource for both physicists and their students, the book includes a "Reader's Guide", which describes the major themes in each chapter, suggests a possible path through the book, and identifies topics for inclusion

Quantum legacy seminal papers of Julian Schwinger by Julian Schwinger( )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Julian Schwinger (1918-94) contributed to a broad range of topics in theoretical physics, from classical electrodynamics to quantum mechanics. This volume includes many of his most important papers
Quantum mechanics : symbolism of atomic measurements by Julian Schwinger( Book )
26 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Julian Schwinger, who shared the 1965 Nobel Prize for physics with Richard Feynman and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga for his pioneering work on quantum electrodynamics, had a considerable influence on the conceptual development of modern quantum field theory. In addition to being an extremely productive researcher he was also a brilliant teacher, and this book demonstrates his outstanding ability to expose a difficult subject in a clear and concise style. In marked contrast to many textbooks on quantum physics, the whole of quantum kinematics and the underlying quantum action principle, which now bears his name, are derived through a systematic analysis of experimental phenomena, thus avoiding the ad hoc postulates of the axiomatic approach. Many applications, all worked out in detail, follow and culminate in an introduction to quantum electrodynamics. A unique legacy, these lecture notes of Schwingers course held at the University of California at Los Angeles were carefully edited by his former collaborator Berthold-Georg Englert and constitute both a self-contained textbook on quantum mechanics and an indispensable source of reference on this fundamental subject by one of the foremost thinkers of twentieth century physics

Climbing the mountain : the scientific biography of Julian Schwinger by K. A Milton( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Julian Schwinger was one of the leading theoretical physicists of the twentieth century. His contributions are as important, and as pervasive, as those of Richard Feynman, with whom (and with Sin-itiro Tomonaga) he shared the 1965 Nobel Prize for Physics. Yet, while Feynman is universally recognized as a cultural icon, Schwinger is little known even to many within the physics community. This biography aims to describe Schwinger's life and research contributions to a wider audience." "This biography describes the many strands of his research life, while tracing the personal life of this private and gentle genius."--Jacket

On angular momentum by Julian Schwinger( Book )
8 editions published between 1952 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The commutation relations of an arbitrary angular momentum vector can be reduced to those of the harmonic oscillator. This provides a powerful method for constructing and developing the properties of angular momentum eigenvectors. In this paper many known theorems are derived in this way, and some new results obtained. Among the topics treated are the properties of the rotation matrices; the addition of two, three, and four angular momenta; and the theory of tensor operators
