About the Author
Julian Schwinger, winner of the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics. He is best known for his work on the theory of quantum electrodynamics (QED), in particular for developing a relativistically invariant perturbation theory, and for renormalizing QED to one loop order. Schwinger was a physics professor at several universities.
