Description

Freeman Dyson’s work on quantum electrodynamics marked an epoch in physics. The techniques he used in this domain form the foundation for most modern theoretical work in elementary particle physics and the quantum many-body problem. He has made highly original and important contributions to an astonishing range of topics, from number theory to adaptive optics. His current research tries to answer the question of whether any conceivable thought-experiment could detect a single graviton.
