Dear Colleagues,

We would like to inform you that, Caltech and The Feynman Lectures Website are released the online edition of “The Feynman Lectures on Physics” which may be of interest to many of us.

The following are the link to access online,



Note by Caltech:

This HTML5-based edition features LaTeX equations rendered by MathJax JavaScript, and scalable vector graphic (SVG) figures. Your browser must support javascript and permit scripts from mathjax.org. We recommend using a modern browser; some older browsers may not display this edition correctly. PNG figures (that degrade when scaled) may be served to browsers that do not support SVG. We do not support versions of Internet Explorer older than 8.0. For information about MathJax features and accessibility options, please visit the MathJax User Help page<http://www.mathjax.org/help/user/>. (This is a work in progress. Initially we are publishing Volume I; We hope to eventually publish Volumes II and III, and lectures will be posted as time and funds permit.)
