How quantum electrodynamics evolved in the first quarter of the 20th century, revealed here by its creators in 34 papers by Foley, Fermi, Heisenberg, Dryson, Weisskopf, Oppenheimer, Pauli, Schwinger, Klein and other key figures. Twenty-nine are in English, three in German, one each in French and Italian. Preface. Historical commentary.

Author Biography

One of the great 20th-century physicists, Julian Schwinger (1918–94) is best remembered for his work on the theory of quantum electrodynamics, the very topic of this text. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, along with Richard Feynman and Shinichiro Tomonaga, for their work on quantum electrodynamics.
