This structure is an excellent illustration of what God can
do and what humans can do. God created mountains and humans built a bridge.
To me, Bohr and Einstein are like Godlike figures. The best I could do was to
build a bridge between them.

Major contributions
cnumber timeenergy uncertainty, harmonic oscillators,
lightcone coordinate system.
Little groups defining internal spacetime symmetries.
Parton model, oscillator model for Regge trajectories, in
addition to Feynman diagrams.
Favorite language
Poems. Dirac's writings are like poems.
Group theory, and twobytwo matrices.
Diagrams and pictures.
Soft spots 
Lack of figures and illustrations. Lack of physical examples. Before the age of highenergy accelerators. 
Lack of concrete physical examples. His 1939 paper could not explain Maxwell's equations.  He could not explain his parton picure in terms of the mathematical tools developed by Dirac and Wigner. 
Mathematical Instruments 
Dirac's idea is to use the Gaussian function (the language of quantum mechanics) for the circle.

If we integrate those nine papers by Dirac, Wigner, and Feynman, we end up with Further Contents of Einstein's E = mc^{2}.


We can now be ambitious!

 
The result is the inhomogeneous Lorentz group with three rotations and three boots generators plus four spacetime translation generators. This is exactly what Dirac wanted to achieve in his 1949 paper.
