By Richard P. Feynman

Famous across the world for the inventive brilliance of his insights into the actual international, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman additionally possessed a rare expertise for explaining tricky ideas to the nonscientist. QED--the edited model of 4 lectures on quantum electrodynamics that Feynman gave to most people at UCLA as a part of the Alix G. Mautner Memorial Lecture series--is probably the easiest instance of his skill to speak either the substance and the spirit of technology to the layperson.

The concentration, because the identify indicates, is quantum electrodynamics (QED), the a part of the quantum concept of fields that describes the interactions of the quanta of the electromagnetic field-light, X rays, gamma rays--with topic and people of charged debris with each other. by means of extending the formalism built through Dirac in 1933, which comparable quantum and classical descriptions of the movement of debris, Feynman revolutionized the quantum mechanical knowing of the character of debris and waves. And, by way of incorporating his personal comfortably visualizable formula of quantum mechanics, Feynman created a diagrammatic model of QED that made calculations a lot easier and in addition supplied visible insights into the mechanisms of quantum electrodynamic processes.

during this booklet, utilizing daily language, spatial ideas, visualizations, and his popular "Feynman diagrams" rather than complicated arithmetic, Feynman effectively presents a definitive advent to QED for a lay readership with none distortion of the elemental technological know-how. characterised by means of Feynman's famously unique readability and humor, this renowned booklet on QED has no longer been equaled on the grounds that its publication.
