## Feynman, Richard

Richard Feynman studied at MIT and received his doctorate from Princeton in 1942. His doctoral work developed a new approach to quantum mechanics using the principle of least action. He replaced the wave model of electromagnetics of Maxwell with a model based on particle interactions mapped into space - time. Feynman worked on the atomic bomb project at Princeton University (1941-42) and then at Los Alamos (1943-45). He introduced diagrams (now called Feynman diagrams) that are graphic analogues of the mathematical expressions needed to describe the behaviour of systems of interacting particles. Other work on particle spin and the theory of "partons" led to the current theory of quarks. He also was an early theorist of nanotechnology.
