Named in memory of Richard P. Feynman (19181988), outstanding theoretical physicist, 1965 Nobel prizewinner for physics, known for his works on liquid helium, quantum electrodynamics, elementary-particle physics and solid-state physics. Feynman was also an outstanding lecturer, and his three-volume introductory university course, The Feynman lectures on physics, has been an inspiration and a source of delight for generations of physicists and other scientists all over the world. His adventures, manner of thinking and curious character are recorded in Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman and What do you care what other people think? (M 29673)
