Further detail
Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, OM, FRS (IPA: /dɪˈræk/) (8 August 1902 – 20 October 1984) was a British theoretical physicist. Dirac made fundamental contributions to the early development of both quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics. He held the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge and spent the last fourteen years of his life at Florida State University. Among other discoveries, he formulated the Dirac equation, which describes the behavior of fermions and which led to the prediction of the existence of antimatter. Dirac shared the Nobel Prize in physics for 1933 with Erwin Schrödinger, “for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory.” If you have a question about this list, please contact: Amanda Stagg; Mike Rose; Louise Mortimer; Chris Mortimer; John Sutton; D.
