    In this book, using everyday language, spatial concepts, visualizations, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, Feynman successfully provides a definitive introduction to QED for a lay readership without any distortion of the basic science. Though the principles of quantum electrodynamics were worked out by three individuals, the most famous founder of QED was undeniably Richard P. Feynman. Feynman was equally good at the mathematics and explanation of a theory, which resulted in his creation of Feynman diagrams — a visual representation of the mathematics that went on in QED.

Press should ask me to write an introduction to the edition of Feynman's famous book QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter. First a confession: I had never read QED before. When this book came out in I had just finished writing my first popular physics book, Fearful Symmetry, and I.

In this section we finally get to quantum electrodynamics (QED), the theory of light interacting with charged matter.

In writing Nutshell I contend that a truly bright undergrad would have a good shot at understanding quantum field theory, and Feynman would surely agree with me.

But as in the analogy, reading this book alone will in no way turn you into a pro. Welcome to QEd Publications.

At the back of each book are discussion points for parents which are really helpful. QED is based on the assumption that complex interactions of many electrons and photons can be represented by fitting together a suitable collection of the above three building blocks and then using the probability amplitudes to calculate the probability of any such complex interaction.

May 06,  · I think Zees book often gives very intuitive explanations, that's a plus. Sometimes these explanations are not too good, (for example on vacuum fluctuations), so that's a minus. The math is explained in some detail, especially at the beginning, but I think that he is sometimes a bit sloppy.

So I would say yes, read it, but use other books as well. QED The Strange Theory of Light and Matter is a magical book of physics, one I highly recommend for students of all levels.
