Summary "The Selected Papers of Richard Feynman should become a fixture on the bookshelf of every physicist "David GoodsteinCaltech"This reprint volume, with commentary by Laurie Brown, will be appreciated by experts and junior scientists alike "Edwin SalpeterCornell University"Brown's commentaries placing the papers in their historical context are most helpful and constitute a valuable addition to the collection "Sam SchweberBrandeis University"Feynman's reputation ultimately rests on his major contributions to science, which this book amply documents such a selection of key papers is a useful reference."CERN Courier, 2001"This book has an excellent chronological bibliography of Feynman's work "Choice, Jul 2001"Anyone with the smallest interest in physics learns that Feynman was a great physicist, on a historic scale. What might come as a surprise is that his original papers maintain a special freshness and life even today. He always tried to construct his own version,of physics, from the ground up, squeezing the maximum of insight from the minimum of formalism. In his greatest successes, including path integrals, the modern version of quantum electrodynamics, and the parton model, he achieves a combination of originality, simplicity, and power that is like Mozart's best music, a reliable source of refreshment and inspiration. But even his lesser works contain unique material. The path-integral variational principle, the ordered operator calculus, and the influence functional, for example, are nowhere better presented than in Feynman's original papers, and they may be capable of much further development."Frank WilczekMIT "One cannotfail to be impressed by the range and quality of Feynman's work represented in this book, and to take pleasure in his distinctive, lucid and incisive style. Although a selection has been made, it is sufficiently broad to pr
