Richard Phillips Feynman (1918 - 1988) best known for his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics for what Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965. He developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams. He also assisted in the development of the atomic bomb at Los Alamos.
