Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, OM (August 8, in Bristol – Octo in Tallahassee) was an English physicist. Dirac's father came from the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Dirac worked out a formulation of quantum mechanics, which includes Erwin Schrödinger's wave mechanics and Werner Heisenberg's matrix mechanics in In he found the Dirac Born: Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, 8 August.

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac was an English theoretical physicist and one of the pioneers in quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics. He had an unhappy childhood, and in spite of possessing the ability to speak French, German and Russian, he was known for his long silences.

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac is regarded as one of the greatest theoretical physicists of the 20th century. In fact he will always rank one of the greatest scientists of all time. Dirac’s work was mainly concerned with a branch of science known as quantum mechanics. Paul Dirac's forgotten quantum wisdom.

It just happened that after more than 20 years, I opened Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac's book on quantum mechanics again, for a longer time.

And it's great, indeed. If this book were used as a textbook, the arguments indisputably presented in the book would guarantee that people avoid lots of misunderstandings.

I will give you the excerpts from the book The Strangest Man, which I read recently. It is a wonderful book covering the life of the great genius who goes by the name of Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac.
