The Beat of a Different Drum is the definitive account of Feynman's life and work. It covers his childhood, his three marriages, and his extraordinary range of interests. But most importantly, it deals in great detail with his scientific work - from his research on the atomic bomb, via hisfamous path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, to the quantum theory of gravitation, partons, quark jets, and the limits of computation. This is the only book to show the full range and depth of Feynman's work in physics and it is written from a unique perspective. Jagdish Mehra knew Richard Feynman personally for thirty years and was invited by Feynman to interview him and encouraged to write this account of thoseinterviews.

This book takes the reader on a journey through the life of Richard Feynman and describes, in non-technical terms, his revolutionary contributions to modern physics. Feynman was an unconventional thinker who always tried to get to the bottom of things. In doing so, he developed an intuitive view that made him one of the greatest teachers of physics. The author captures this development and explains it in the context of the zeitgeist of modern physics: What revolutionary ideas did Feynman have, what contribution did he make to the development of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, how can Feynman's methods be understood? Be enchanted by this book and understand the physics of the genius whose 100th birthday was celebrated in 2018.

"A worthy addition to the Feynman shelf and a welcome follow-up to the standard-bearer, James Gleick's Genius." —Kirkus Reviews Perhaps the greatest physicist of the second half of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman changed the way we think about quantum mechanics, the most perplexing of all physical theories. Here Lawrence M. Krauss, himself a theoretical physicist and a best-selling author, offers a unique scientific biography: a rollicking narrative coupled with clear and novel expositions of science at the limits. From the death of Feynman’s childhood sweetheart during the Manhattan Project to his reluctant rise as a scientific icon, we see Feynman’s life through his science, providing a new understanding of the legacy of a man who has fascinated millions.

The Reader's Guide to the History of Science looks at the literature of science in some 550 entries on individuals (Einstein), institutions and disciplines (Mathematics), general themes (Romantic Science) and central concepts (Paradigm and Fact). The history of science is construed widely to include the history of medicine and technology as is reflected in the range of disciplines from which the international team of 200 contributors are drawn.

This book presents an account of all aspects of Einstein’s achievements in quantum theory, his own views, and the progress his work has stimulated since his death. While some chapters use mathematics at an undergraduate physics level, a path is provided for the reader more concerned with ideas than equations, and the book will benefit to anybody interested in Einstein and his approach to the quantum.

Researchers in the humanities and social sciences have examined nanotechnology for more than twenty years. Their interests include the history of nanotech, religious reactions, and public engagement with it. This collection shows that the humanities and social sciences contribute to our understanding of nanotechnology. It will also serve to accompany textbooks in physics, chemistry, molecular biology, and microelectronics because it illuminates societal and ethical issues in these disciplines.
