Richard P. Feynman


Richard Feynman was awarded the 1965 Nobel prize in physics jointly with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itro Tomonaga "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles.” Richard Feynman’s Nobel lecture is one you may want to read to understand the trials and tribulations of coming up with a new representation of the laws of nature. He is one of the founding father’s of quantum electrodynamics (QED) which is the study of how light and matter interact in full agreement with quantum theory and special relativity.
