Dirac's Cambridge and Newton's Cambridge


Paul A. M. Dirac is dear to every physicist of our generation. His writings are like poems. His formulas are mathematical poems. I met him in 1962 while I was a first-year assistant professor at the University of Maryland. I met him again in 1978 while attending a conference in Coral Cables (Florida). In 1984, I was invited to the memorial convocation for Dirac held at the University of Florida in Tallahassee.
