The accelerating effort to understand the mathematics of quantum field theory will have profound consequences for both math and physics.

Renormalization has become perhaps the single most important advance in theoretical physics in 50 years.

In the late 1940s, Richard Feynman invented a visual tool for simplifying particle calculations that forever changed theoretical physics.

Richard Feynman’s famous diagrams weren’t just a way to do calculations. They represented a deep shift in thinking about how the universe is put together.
