Physics Colloquium: The Strangest Man: the life of Paul Dirac

Description:
Paul Dirac, co-discover of quantum mechanics, was one of the greatest theoretical physicists of the twentieth century. Now often called "the theorists theorist," he is most famous for prediction of anti-matter on the basis of his relativistic equation for the electron. He is also well known for his extraordinary personality, especially his taciturnity, his rectilinear thought processes and his lack of empathy. In this talk, Graham Farmelo shall explore his work, his character and his posthumous productivity as perhaps the most influential of the pioneers of quantum physics. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 24, 2012
