For many sections of this book, I would recommend for myself at least a more vanilla companion text along with this book to familiarize hbibs with the underlying math and more routine ‘techniques’.

Quantum Mechanics and Path Integrals: Emended Edition

Primer of Quantum Mechanics. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Please try again later. Quantum Mechanics and Path Integrals: In addition to its merit as a text for graduate courses in physics, this volume serves as an excellent resource for professionals.

The standard treatments are very mathematical and non-physical. Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Hibs. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. This book offers an alternative approach to quantum mechanics than the vast majority. It would also be more convenient to have this text on the Kindle, in a more modern typeset, but that doesnt seem likely.


I’ve tried a few texts on this subject but never felt satisfied.

Albert Hibbs

Book gives convincing background as to Path integral applications. From the master himself. Lectures on Quantum Mechanics. Archived from the original on June 24, This text, in my opinion, serves two great needs: Most Feynman books are excellent; this one is no exception.

Biography [ edit ] InHibbs and Roy Walford took time off, from graduate school and medical school respectively, to go to Reno and Las Vegas to beat the casinos at roulette.

I would also suggest the QED, of the same scientist, to facilitate understanding Put this reference together with the Feynman PhD dissertation, and a physics person has a complete record as to the origins AND the applications of Feynman’s enduring gift to physics.

It was a very deep and strong struggle. Feynman and Hibbs provide superb method building basics stepwise method. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Hibbs enjoyed making kinetic sculpture as a hobby and was fascinated by self-actuated machines—a field where he once again collaborated in a well known idea-experiment of Feynman’s. Totally worth your time and money. The Scientist’s Scientist One of the most famous scientists of the twentieth century, and an inexhaustible source of wonderful quotes, Richard Feynman shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga for his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics.


If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in. Emended Edition Add to Wishlist.

According to Feynman, it was Hibbs who originally suggested to him circa the idea of a medical use for Feynman’s theoretical micromachines see nanotechnology. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Get to Know Us. See all 55 reviews. The opening chapters explore the fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics and introduce path integrals.

Hibbs suggested that certain repair machines might one day be reduced in size to the point that it would, in theory, be possible to as Feynman feynmna it “swallow the doctor”.
