Catalogue Note

FEYNMAN ON THE KEY PHYSICAL PROCESSES THAT ARE THE HALLMARK TO THE SUCCESS OF QED; COMPTON EFFECT, PAIRS, & BREMSSTRAHLUNG.

An important pre-Nobel manuscript on Quantum Electrodynamics. Here, relying upon relevant energy-momentum 4-vectors as well as the underlying machinery of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, Feynman uses relativistic invariants to analyze the signature high-energy physical processes, involving electrons & gamma rays, which constitute important experimental tests of QED.
