By providing a before-after comparison, they do however serve to demonstrate what Wuthrich identifies as the decisive conceptual advance brought along by Feynman diagrams: The effective isolation of the problematic parts of the theory (the appearance of infinite results had been plaguing calculations in quantum electrodynamics for two decades), made possible by reducing all physical processes to a few elementary building blocks in the diagrammatic representation.

Following quantum mechanics, field theory was quantised in a second step, leading to quantum electrodynamics. In modern physics, the fundamental forces are all described by quantum field theories, except for gravity.
Quantum electrodynamics, more fully the relativistic quantum field theory of electrodynamics, describes all phenomena that involve interacting charged particles, explain Merches (mathematical sciences, New York U.), Tatomir, and Lupu (physics and astronomy, U.
* calculus of exterior differential forms, which puts mechanics and electrodynamics on the same mathematical footing, and ultimately leads to the formalism of fiber-bundles and gauge-connections underlying Quantum Electrodynamics and the Standard Model.
Before World War II, the world's most brilliant physicists were frustrated by their inability to push forward understanding of quantum electrodynamics, the field that considers the nature of electricity and magnetism in realms where even atoms appear large and particles move at speeds near that of light.
Feynman shared the Nobel Prize in physics in 1965, with Julian Schwinger and Shinichiro Tomonaga, for his contributions to the understanding of quantum electrodynamics, which deals with the interactions between light and charged particles in general and between light and electrons in particular.
Remarkably the Quesne-Tkachuk algebra leads to a systematic procedure to generate fourth-derivative models; for instance, in the case spin-0 particles, minimal length corrections were implemented in the Klein-Gordon field, leading to a higher-derivative theory for the scalar field [27]; for spin1/2 fields, the deformation procedure was applied in order to construct a higher-derivative version of the Dirac field [28]; some investigations were also performed in the context of electrostatic [29], magnetostatic [30], electrodynamics with external sources [31], and quantum electrodynamics [32]; finally, in a recent paper, Dias et al.
Now, this 80-year-old prediction of quantum electrodynamics (QED) - the theory that describes, among other things, the interaction between matter and light - has finally been observed in nature.
This need to correlate the classical mental description to a naturally corresponding quantum counterpart at the mind-brain interface is met by taking this connection to be via the well-known "coherent states" of quantum electrodynamics. These are quantum states that exhibit a simple harmonic oscillator (SHO) motion that is essentially identical to a classical SHO motion, except that the location of a classical point particle is replaced by a minimum uncertainty Gaussian quantum wave packet whose center point follows the phase-space trajectory of classical oscillating point.
