# ~Archived - Collected Links Accompanying Feynman Lectures

*Page created: September 2010*

*Story of how I got around to reading these lectures is here.*

The following links point to various resources (textual explanations, diagrams, java applets, videos) available online to help enhance your experience while studying the Lectures. The Feynman Lectures were published in 1964. Lots of advancements have been made since then: Bose Einstein Condensate, String Theory, Proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, Large hadron Collider etc.. I have also linked to these resources regarding these concepts too.
