For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Shin'ichirō Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965.

Feynman developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams.

This was an incurable disease at the time, and she was not expected to live more than two years.

On June 29, 1942, they took the Staten Island Ferry to Staten Island, where they were married in the city office.

Feynman had his revenge a few years later, when Heisenberg concluded an entire book in cosmic rays with the phrase: "such an effect is not to be expected according to Vallarta and Feynman." When they next met, Feynman asked gleefully whether Vallarta had seen Heisenberg's book. It was not just a facility at mathematics (though it had become clear ...

that the mathematical machinery emerging from the Wheeler–Feynman collaboration was beyond Wheeler's own ability).

During his lifetime, Feynman became one of the best-known scientists in the world.

In a 1999 poll of 130 leading physicists worldwide by the British journal Physics World he was ranked as one of the ten greatest physicists of all time.

The ceremony was attended by neither family nor friends and was witnessed by a pair of strangers. After the ceremony he took her to Deborah Hospital, where he visited her on weekends.

After the attack on Pearl Harbor had brought the United States into the war, Feynman was recruited by Robert R.

Wilson, who was working on means to produce enriched uranium for use in an atomic bomb, as part of what would become the Manhattan Project.
