Title: Richard Feynman: The Douglas Robb Memorial Lectures
Url: http://www.vega.org.uk/video/subseries/8
Publisher: Vega Science Trust
Description: In this set of video lectures given in 1979 by Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, Feynman presents not only a lesson in basic physics but also a deep insight into the approach of the 17th century physicist, Isaac Newton. The first lecture, Photons - Corpuscles of Light, is an introduction to photons and their properties as well as to the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the calculation of probabilities for quantum events. The second lecture, Fits of Reflection and Transmission - Quantum Behaviour, explains the reflection and transmission of light in more detail. The third lecture, Electrons and their Interactions, explains Feynman diagrams and the intricacies of particle interaction. The last lecture, New Queries, explores the relation of quantum electrodynamics to the whole of physics and where it is all leading. The length of the lectures are, respectively: 1 hour and 18 minutes; 1 hour and 39 minutes; 1 hour and 40 minutes; and 1 hour and 33 minutes.
