*About this edition:*This is the first systematic introduction to electromagnetic duality and its generalizations.Product Description: Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac was one of the founders of quantum theory. He is numbered alongside Newton, Maxwell and Einstein as one of the greatest physicists of all time. Together the lectures in this volume, originally presented on the occasion of the dedication ceremony for a plaque honoring Dirac in Westminster Abbey, give a unique insight into the relationship between Dirac's character and his scientific achievements...read more

*About this edition:*Offers the addresses given at a Westminster Abbey ceremony honoring the British physicist, which discuss his life, his character and its effect on his work, and his discoveries in quantum theory, antimatter, and related fieldsProduct Description: Certain interactions, such as nuclear forces and the forces of 'high-energy' physics, which arise in the theory of elementary particles, cannot be described successfully by quantum field theory. Considerable interest has therefore centred on attempts to formulate interactions between elementary particles in terms of the S-Matrix, an operator introduced by Heisenberg which connects the input and output of a scattering experiment without seeking to give a localized description of the intervening events...read more (view table of contents, read Amazon.com's description)
