Feynman's Rainbow

Part of the deal was that he could spend his first year on sabbatical in Brazil. They had met in a cafeteria in Cornell, where she had studied the history of Mexican art and textiles.

She later followed him to Caltech, where he gave a lecture. While he was in Brazil, she taught classes on the history of furniture and interiors at Michigan State University.

He proposed to her by mail from Rio de Janeiro, and they married in Boise, Idaho , on June 28, , shortly after he returned. They frequently quarreled and she was frightened by his violent temper. Their politics were different; although he registered and voted as a Republican , she was more conservative, and her opinion on the Oppenheimer security hearing "Where there's smoke there's fire" offended him.

They separated on May 20, An interlocutory decree of divorce was entered on June 19, , on the grounds of "extreme cruelty". The divorce became final on May 5, He did calculus while driving in his car, while sitting in the living room, and while lying in bed at night.

Mary Louise Bell, divorce complaint [] In the wake of the Sputnik crisis , the US government's interest in science rose for a time. Feynman was considered for a seat on the President's Science Advisory Committee , but was not appointed. Edgar Hoover on August 8, I do not know—but I believe that Richard Feynman is either a Communist or very strongly pro-Communist—and as such is a very definite security risk.

This man is, in my opinion, an extremely complex and dangerous person, a very dangerous person to have in a position of public trust In matters of intrigue Richard Feynman is, I believe immensely clever—indeed a genius—and he is, I further believe, completely ruthless, unhampered by morals, ethics, or religion—and will stop at absolutely nothing to achieve his ends. Feynman's love life had been turbulent since his divorce; his previous girlfriend had walked off with his Albert Einstein Award medal and, on the advice of an earlier girlfriend, had feigned pregnancy and blackmailed him into paying for an abortion, then used the money to download furniture.

Feynman knew that this sort of behavior was illegal under the Mann Act , so he had a friend, Matthew Sands , act as her sponsor. Howarth pointed out that she already had two boyfriends, but decided to take Feynman up on his offer, and arrived in Altadena, California , in June She made a point of dating other men, but Feynman proposed in early They were married on September 24, , at the Huntington Hotel in Pasadena.

They had a son, Carl, in , and adopted a daughter, Michelle, in Feynman provided a quantum-mechanical explanation for the Soviet physicist Lev Landau 's theory of superfluidity.

This helped with the problem of superconductivity , but the solution eluded Feynman. Although E.

George Sudarshan and Robert Marshak developed the theory nearly simultaneously, Feynman's collaboration with Murray Gell-Mann was seen as seminal because the weak interaction was neatly described by the vector and axial currents.

It thus combined the beta decay theory of Enrico Fermi with an explanation of parity violation. The parton model emerged as a complement to the quark model developed by Gell-Mann.

The relationship between the two models was murky; Gell-Mann referred to Feynman's partons derisively as "put-ons". In the mids, physicists believed that quarks were just a bookkeeping device for symmetry numbers, not real particles; the statistics of the omega-minus particle , if it were interpreted as three identical strange quarks bound together, seemed impossible if quarks were real.

It was natural to identify these with quarks, but Feynman's parton model attempted to interpret the experimental data in a way that did not introduce additional hypotheses.

These electrically neutral particles are now seen to be the gluons that carry the forces between the quarks, and their three-valued color quantum number solves the omega-minus problem.

Feynman did not dispute the quark model; for example, when the fifth quark was discovered in , Feynman immediately pointed out to his students that the discovery implied the existence of a sixth quark, which was discovered in the decade after his death.

By analogy with the photon, which has spin 1, he investigated the consequences of a free massless spin 2 field and derived the Einstein field equation of general relativity, but little more.

The computational device that Feynman discovered then for gravity, "ghosts", which are "particles" in the interior of his diagrams that have the "wrong" connection between spin and statistics, have proved invaluable in explaining the quantum particle behavior of the Yang—Mills theories, for example, quantum chromodynamics and the electro-weak theory.

John and Mary Gribbin state in their book on Feynman that "Nobody else has made such influential contributions to the investigation of all four of the interactions". After three years devoted to the task, he produced a series of lectures that later became The Feynman Lectures on Physics.

He wanted a picture of a drumhead sprinkled with powder to show the modes of vibration at the beginning of the book. Concerned over the connections to drugs and rock and roll that could be made from the image, the publishers changed the cover to plain red, though they included a picture of him playing drums in the foreword.
