4B: The Best of Feynman
Simplified 4B is an unprecedented catalog and explanation of every key
principle and important equation in all of The Feynman Lectures on
Physics. This book is an encyclopedia of great physics, from the
lectures of one of history’s most brilliant scientists.
In addition, this book explores the major discoveries of physics in the half-century since Feynman gave these lectures.
To fit all this
wonderful physics in one book, Feynman Simplified 4B is concise, with
brief explanations and few derivations. For those beginning their
exploration of physics, I recommend building your knowledge gradually
and systematically, starting with Feynman Simplified 1A. This book is
for experienced physicists and students who seek quick reminders of
Boltzmann’s law, or where the minus sign goes. Everything you need is
here, in one convenient source.
Chapter 1 summarizes the most important principles and equations, with references to further discussion in later chapters.
Chapter 15 explores Feynman’s best problem-solving tricks.
Finally, an extensive alphabetical index facilitates access to this book’s treasures.
