This concludes the central part of the book, in which Wuthrich clearly demonstrates that diagrams were not primarily a calculational aid for Feynman, but rather provided him with an important heuristic tool in his reformulation of quantum electrodynamics and that for the most part his diagrams represented physical processes in space and time, rather than mathematical expressions.
This is nowhere more obvious than in quantum electrodynamics which is the most accurate theory in the history of science so far.
calculus of exterior differential forms, which puts mechanics and electrodynamics on the same mathematical footing, and ultimately leads to the formalism of fiber-bundles and gauge-connections underlying Quantum Electrodynamics and the Standard Model.
Before World War II, the world's most brilliant physicists were frustrated by their inability to push forward understanding of quantum electrodynamics, the field that considers the nature of electricity and magnetism in realms where even atoms appear large and particles move at speeds near that of light.
Once referred to as the the ``bongo-playing raconteur and genius of quantum electrodynamics,'' Richard P.
The popularity of "continuous field" based GR have been responsible for the undermining of the original particle based orientation of quantum electrodynamics (QED); as "field" based theories like quantum field theory (QFT) now dominate quantum mechanics and the related domains of cosmology.
In circuit quantum electrodynamics (cQED) on the other hand, artificial superconducting atoms are made to interact strongly with microwave fields at the single photon level, and quantum-limited detection of few-photon microwave signals has been developed.
The first volume covers from relativistic quantum mechanics to quantum electrodynamics from the perspectives of electromagnetism as a gauge theory and relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, tree-level applications in quantum electrodynamics, and loops and renormalization.
Having to resort to such hocus has prevented us from proving that the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self consistent.
Feynman was a Nobel prize-winning physicist who not only advanced quantum electrodynamics but was also famous for his outgoing personality and keen ability to impart complicated ideas to a lay audience.

Namely, we plan to exploit the potential of cavity quantum electrodynamics in the bad emitter limit where decoherence is mostly due to the artificial atom.
Here physicists describe recent developments in single quantum dot systems, nanolasers with quantum dot emitters, interaction between light and matter in semiconductor nanostructures, semiconductor cavity quantum electrodynamics, and ultrafast phenomena.
The 11 papers in this collection review the role of nontrivial symmetries in equilibrium thermodynamics, the Lie derivative of spinor fields, Landen transformation formulas for Jacobi elliptic functions, and the quantum electrodynamics of the Poincare group.
Richard Feynman, a brilliant physicist who gave his name in mathematics to the Feynman Diagrams, first presented his new theory of quantum electrodynamics at this 1948 meeting.
