An edited version of four lectures on quantum electrodynamics that Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman gave to the general public at UCLA. This book focuses on quantum electrodynamics (QED), the part of the quantum theory that describes the interactions of the quanta of the electromagnetic field - light, X rays, gamma rays - with matter.더 읽기…

Richard P. Feynman.
Physics Nobelist Feynman simply cannot help being original. In this quirky, fascinating book, he explains to laymen the quantum theory of light, a theory to which he made decisive contributions. The New Yorker Feynman's lectures must have been marvelous and they have been turned into an equally entrancing book, a vivid introduction to QED which is leavened and enlivened by his wit. Anyone with a curiosity about physics today should buy it, not only to get to grips with the deepest meaning of quantum theory but to possess a slice of history. -- Pedro Waloschek Nature더 읽기…
