Аннотация

Американский физик Ричард Фейнман – один из величайших ученых ХХ века, лауреат Нобелевской премии по физике. В свое время преподаватели Калифорнийского технологического университета задумались о том, как можно было бы перестроить курс физики, чтобы сделать его более занимательным и современным. Ричард Фейнман с энтузиазмом подхватил эту идею и согласился прочитать авторский двухгодичный курс лекций по общей физике, но только один раз. Университет, для которого это событие стало историческим, организовал запись лекций, и затем команда физиков подготовила издание в нескольких томах, которое и поныне считается одним из лучших вводных курсов по физике. В настоящий том вошли лекции по электродинамике.
