Richard Feynman

1918-1988          Some Quotations



  Richard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist. 


  His many contributions include:

     ♦  Developing  a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior

          of subatomic particles.

     ♦  Developing the path inegral formulation of quantum mechanics

     ♦  Advances in the theory of quantum electrodyamics

     ♦  Contributions to the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled helium

     ♦  Work in particle physics - proposed the parton model.

     ♦  Assisting in the development of the atomic bomb

     ♦  Pioneering the field of quantum computing

     ♦  Introducing the concept of nanotechnology (creation of devices at the molecular scale)

  Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 for his work in quantum electrodynamics


  During his lifetime and after his death, Feynman became one of the most publicly known scientists in the world.
