CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Renowned physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson is famous for his work in
quantum mechanics, nuclear weapons policy and bold visions for the future of
humanity. In the 1940s, he was responsible for demonstrating the equivalence of
the two formulations of quantum electrodynamics Richard Feynman's diagrammatic
path integral formulation and the variational methods developed by Julian
Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonoga showing the mathematical consistency of QED.
This invaluable volume comprises the legendary, never-before-published,
lectures on quantum electrodynamics first given by Dyson at Cornell University
in 1951. The late theorist Edwin Thompson Jaynes once remarked "For a
generation of physicists they were the happy medium: clearer and motivated than
Feynman, and getting to the point faster than Schwinger . Future generations of
physicists are bound to read these lectures with pleasure, benefiting from the
lucid style that is so characteristic of Dyson's exposition.
