Paul A.M. Dirac Collection


Paul Dirac is recognized by most authorities as one of the greatest theoretical physicists of the twentieth century and father of the field of quantum mechanics. He was the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Prize when he shared the 1933 prize for discoveries in atomic theory with Erwin Schrödinger.

The Paul A.M. Dirac Collection consists of selected materials that were digitized from the original Dirac Papers. The digital collection contains lectures, documents including Dirac's PhD dissertation, photographs, formulas, awards given to Dirac, and other historical objects.
