 Taschenbuch
Kurzfristig nicht lieferbar | Versandkostenfrei
It was Richard Feynman's outrageous and scintillating method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics. From 1961 to 1963, Feynman delivered a series of lectures at the California Institute of Technology that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world. Six Easy Pieces , taken from these famous Lectures on Physics, represent the most accessible material from the series. In these classic lessons, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, basic physics, energy, gravitation, quantum mechanics, and the relationship of physics to other topics. With his dazzling and inimitable wit, Feynman presents each discussion with a minimum of jargon. Filled with wonderful examples and clever illustrations, Six Easy Pieces is the ideal introduction to the fundamentals of physics by one of the most admired and accessible physicists of modern times.

Prof. Dr. Matthew Sands forschte und lehrte bis zu seiner Emeritierung 1994 an der University of California Santa Cruz. 1998 bekam er von der American Physical Society (APS) den Wilson-Preis verliehen.

Robert B. Leighton (1919-1997) forschte und lehrte am California Institute of Technology, USA ("Caltech"). Er war Mitglied der "National Academy of Science" (NAS) und gewann 1988 die James-Craig-Watson-Medaille. Leighton leitete die Entwicklung der Mars-Sonden Mariner 4, Mariner 6 und Mariner 7 und entwickelte zahlreiche leistungsstarke Teleskope, die in u.a. in den berühmten Observatorien Mauna Kea (Hawaii), Mount Wilson und Owens Valley (Kalifornien) Einsatz finden.
