Richard Feynman’s Legacy and the Mentorship of John Wheeler
Friday, May 4, 2018

Richard Feynman, the Nobel Laureate whose centenary we are celebrating on May 11, was one of the most important American theoretical physicists of all time. His diagrams are used every day in characterizing particle interactions. In my talk, I'll explore how he was influenced by his PhD mentor at Princeton, another well-known physicist, John Wheeler. I'll discuss how the lifelong interplay between the two physicists helped shape Feynman’s key contributions to physics and physics pedagogy, despite clear differences in style and personality between the two.
