Nobel-laureate Steven Weinberg has been awarded multiple other titles and medals for his contributions to physics, including the Elliott Cresson Medal in 1979, the James Madison Medal of Princeton University, and the National Medal of Science in 1991. Considered yet "[a]nother landmark work" (Physics Today), the trilogy on quantum physics is hailed as "a self-contained, up-to-date and comprehensive introduction...an invaluable reference work for all physicists and for mathematicians" (American Scientist). In these volumes, "physics comes first, and formalism is shaped to serve it...an enormous amount of literature is digested and made manageable...it is a tribute to this trilogy that it leaves one hoping it will evolve into a tetralogy" (Journal of General Relativity and Gravitation).
