By Richard P. Feynman
Celebrated for his brilliantly quirky insights into the actual global, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman additionally possessed a unprecedented expertise for explaining tough recommendations to most people. right here Feynman presents a vintage and definitive creation to QED (namely quantum electrodynamics), that a part of quantum box thought describing the interactions of sunshine with charged debris. utilizing daily language, spatial thoughts, visualizations, and his popular "Feynman diagrams" rather than complex arithmetic, Feynman truly and humorously communicates either the substance and spirit of QED to the layperson. A. Zee's new creation areas either Feynman's ebook and his seminal contribution to QED in ancient context and additional highlights Feynman's uniquely beautiful and illuminating style.
