Feynman computing, and Feynman would teach Fredkin quantum physics. Feynman showed them a handwritten notebook filled with computations and challenged them to develop software that could perform symbolic mathematical computations. Feynman himself took up this idea in the ’60s, and Hawking championed it in the ’70s and ’80s.
Later that year Mizera met Mastrolia, who realized that these techniques could work for
Feynman diagrams too. British Dictionary definitions for Feynman noun Richard . 1918–88, US physicist, noted for his research on quantum electrodynamics; shared the Nobel prize for physics in 1965

Scientific definitions for Feynman Feynman Richard Phillips 1918-1988 American physicist who developed the theory of quantum electrodynamics, laying the foundation for all other quantum field theories. His approach combined quantum mechanics and relativity theory, and exploited a method using diagrams of particle interactions to greatly simplify calculations. For this work he shared with American physicist Julian Schwinger and Japanese physicist Sin-Itiro Tomonaga the 1965 Nobel Prize for physics.
