    Julian Schwinger is an American physicist In 1965 he was awarded, along with Richard P Feynman and Sin Itiro Tomonaga for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles.Schwinger was a child prodigy, publishing his first physics paper at age 16 He earned a bachelor s degree 1937 and a doctorate 1939 from Columbia University in New York City, before engaging in postdoctoral studies at the University of California at Berkeley with physicist J Robert Oppenheimer Schwinger left Berkeley in the summer of 1941 to accept an instructorship at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind and in 1943 he joined the Radiation Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where many scientists had been assembled to help with wartime research on radar In the fall of 1945 Schwinger accepted an appointment at Harvard University and in 1947 became one of the youngest full professors in the school s history From 1972 until his death, Schwinger was a professor in the physics department at the University of California at Los Angeles.Schwinger was one of the participants at the meeting held in June 1947 on Shelter Island, Long Island, N.Y at which reliable experimental data were presented that contradicted the predictions of the English theoretical physicist P.A.M Dirac s relativistic quantum theory of the electron In particular, experimental data contradicted Dirac s prediction that certain hydrogen electron stationary states were degenerate i.e had the same energy as certain other states as well as Dirac s prediction for the value of the magnetic moment of the electron Schwinger made a quantum electrodynamical calculation that made use of the notions of mass and charge renormalization, which brought agreement between theory and experimental data This was a crucial breakthrough that initiated a new era in quantum field theory Richard Feynman and Tomonaga Shin ichir independently had carried out similar calculations, and in 1965 the three of them shared the Nobel Prize Their work created a new and very successful quantum mechanical description of the interaction between electrically charged entities and the electromagnetic field that conformed with the principles of Albert Einstein s special theory of relativity.Schwinger s work extended to almost every frontier of modern theoretical physics He had a profound influence on physics both directly and through being the academic adviser for than 70 doctoral students and than 20 postdoctoral fellows, many of whom became the outstanding theorists of their generation.
