The Feynman Lectures on Physics, originally published in , were For instance, for the rainbow, such a plot would be the intensity of radiation vs.

Feynman is in the second row, fourth from left, next to Oppenheimer Returning to Los Alamos, Feynman was put in charge of the group responsible for the theoretical work and calculations on the proposed uranium hydride bomb , which ultimately proved to be infeasible. He later discovered the reason: most of the other physicists were too much in awe of Bohr to argue with him.

Feynman had no such inhibitions, vigorously pointing out anything he considered to be flawed in Bohr's thinking. He said he felt as much respect for Bohr as anyone else, but once anyone got him talking about physics, he would become so focused he forgot about social niceties. Perhaps because of this, Bohr never warmed to Feynman. He often found that they left the lock combinations on the factory settings, wrote the combinations down, or used easily guessable combinations like dates.

He left notes in the cabinets as a prank, spooking his colleague, Frederic de Hoffmann , into thinking a spy had gained access to them.

Feynman claimed to be the only person to see the explosion without the very dark glasses or welder's lenses provided, reasoning that it was safe to look through a truck windshield, as it would screen out the harmful ultraviolet radiation. The immense brightness of the explosion made him duck to the truck's floor, where he saw a temporary "purple splotch" afterimage.

His appointment was not extended when he did not commit to returning. In a talk given there several years later, Feynman quipped, "It's great to be back at the only university that ever had the good sense to fire me. On February 28, , this was endorsed by Robert Bacher , [75] also from Cornell, [76] and one of the most senior scientists at Los Alamos.

Oppenheimer had also hoped to recruit Feynman to the University of California, but the head of the physics department, Raymond T. Birge , was reluctant. He made Feynman an offer in May , but Feynman turned it down.

At his induction physical Army psychiatrists diagnosed Feynman as suffering from a mental illness, and the Army gave him a 4-F exemption on mental grounds. The letter was sealed and only opened after his death. His work during this period, which used equations of rotation to express various spinning speeds, ultimately proved important to his Nobel Prize—winning work, yet because he felt burned out and had turned his attention to less immediately practical problems, he was surprised by the offers of professorships from other renowned universities, including the Institute for Advanced Study , the University of California, Los Angeles , and the University of California, Berkeley.

Quantum electrodynamics suffered from infinite integrals in perturbation theory.

These were clear mathematical flaws in the theory, which Feynman and Wheeler had unsuccessfully attempted to work around. For Feynman, it was his "first big conference with big men I had never gone to one like this one in peacetime.

The next step was to create a relativistic version.

Feynman thought that he could do this, but when he went back to Bethe with his solution, it did not converge. Like Bethe, he made the integral finite by applying a cut-off term.

The result corresponded to Bethe's version. It did not go well.

Julian Schwinger gave a long presentation of his work in quantum electrodynamics, and Feynman then offered his version, titled "Alternative Formulation of Quantum Electrodynamics".

The unfamiliar Feynman diagrams , used for the first time, puzzled the audience. He was convinced that Feynman's formulation was easier to understand, and ultimately managed to convince Oppenheimer that this was the case.

Computer programs were later written to compute Feynman diagrams, providing a tool of unprecedented power.

It is possible to write such programs because the Feynman diagrams constitute a formal language with a formal grammar. Marc Kac provided the formal proofs of the summation under history, showing that the parabolic partial differential equation can be re-expressed as a sum under different histories that is, an expectation operator , what is now known as the Feynman—Kac formula , the use of which extends beyond physics to many applications of stochastic processes.

He never settled into a particular house or apartment, living in guest houses or student residences, or with married friends "until these arrangements became sexually volatile. In an interview, he described the House as "a group of boys that have been specially selected because of their scholarship, because of their cleverness or whatever it is, to be given free board and lodging and so on, because of their brains. In Brazil, Feynman was impressed with samba music, and learned to play a metal percussion instrument, the frigideira.

Bacher, who had been instrumental in bringing Feynman to Cornell, had lured him to the California Institute of Technology Caltech.

Part of the deal was that he could spend his first year on sabbatical in Brazil. They had met in a cafeteria in Cornell, where she had studied the history of Mexican art and textiles. She later followed him to Caltech, where he gave a lecture.

While he was in Brazil, she taught classes on the history of furniture and interiors at Michigan State University. He proposed to her by mail from Rio de Janeiro, and they married in Boise, Idaho , on June 28, , shortly after he returned. They frequently quarreled and she was frightened by his violent temper.

Their politics were different; although he registered and voted as a Republican , she was more conservative, and her opinion on the Oppenheimer security hearing "Where there's smoke there's fire" offended him. They separated on May 20, An interlocutory decree of divorce was entered on June 19, , on the grounds of "extreme cruelty". The divorce became final on May 5, He did calculus while driving in his car, while sitting in the living room, and while lying in bed at night.

Mary Louise Bell, divorce complaint [] In the wake of the Sputnik crisis , the US government's interest in science rose for a time.

Feynman was considered for a seat on the President's Science Advisory Committee , but was not appointed. Edgar Hoover on August 8, I do not know—but I believe that Richard Feynman is either a Communist or very strongly pro-Communist—and as such is a very definite security risk.

This man is, in my opinion, an extremely complex and dangerous person, a very dangerous person to have in a position of public trust In matters of intrigue Richard Feynman is, I believe immensely clever—indeed a genius—and he is, I further believe, completely ruthless, unhampered by morals, ethics, or religion—and will stop at absolutely nothing to achieve his ends.

Feynman's love life had been turbulent since his divorce; his previous girlfriend had walked off with his Albert Einstein Award medal and, on the advice of an earlier girlfriend, had feigned pregnancy and blackmailed him into paying for an abortion, then used the money to download furniture. Feynman knew that this sort of behavior was illegal under the Mann Act , so he had a friend, Matthew Sands , act as her sponsor.

Howarth pointed out that she already had two boyfriends, but decided to take Feynman up on his offer, and arrived in Altadena, California , in June She made a point of dating other men, but Feynman proposed in early They were married on September 24, , at the Huntington Hotel in Pasadena.

They had a son, Carl, in , and adopted a daughter, Michelle, in Feynman provided a quantum-mechanical explanation for the Soviet physicist Lev Landau 's theory of superfluidity. This helped with the problem of superconductivity , but the solution eluded Feynman.
