Relativistic Cut-Off for Quantum Electrodynamics,
[in] The Physical Review. Volume 74, No. 10.
First edition of Feynman’s very first paper on quantum electrodynamics, in which he proposed a mechanism (the ‘cut-off’) for removing the divergences which had plagued the theory since its development by Dirac. This paper pre-dates his work on Feynman diagrams, which was not published until the following year. This issue also contains the competing paper by Julian Schwinger, “Quantum electrodynamics I. A. covariant formulation”, making this the key issue of Physical Review with regard to quantum electrodynamics. A superb copy of one of the most important of Feynman’s publications and a key work in post-war physics.
