Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic, the first of three volumes, presents techniques that emphasize the unity of high-energy particle physics with electrodynamics, gravitational theory, and many-particle cooperative phenomena. What emerges is a theory intermediate in position between operator field theory and S-matrix theory, which rejects the dogmas of each and gains thereby a calculational ease and intuitiveness that make it a worthy contender to displace the earlier formulations.

Synopsis:

"This classic, the first of three volumes, presents techniques that emphasize the unity of high-energy particle physics with electrodynamics, gravitational theory, and many-particle cooperative phenome"

About the Author

Julian Schwinger (1918-1994) was born in New York City. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from Columbia University in 1939. He also received honorary doctorates in science from Purdue, Brandeis, Harvard, and Gustavus Adolphus College. He taught at the University of California, Los Angeles, from 1972 until his death. In 1965, Dr. Schwinger received (with Richard Feynman and Sin Itiro Tomonaga) the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work in quantum electrodynamics. A National Research Foundation Fellow (1939-1940) and a Guggenheim Fellow (1970), he was the recipient of many awards, including: the First Einstein Prize Award for Physics (1964), and the American Academy of Achievement Award (1987).
