1956. 40 Feynman had applied the principle of stationary action to problems of quantum mechanics, inspired by a desire to quantize the WheelerFeynman absorber theory of electrodynamics, and laid the groundwork for the path integral formulation and Feynman diagrams. Feynman carefully worked through the problem again, applying the path integral formulation that he had used in his thesis. Parnell, Peter (2002 QED, Applause Books, isbn (play). He made Feynman an offer in May 1945, but Feynman turned it down. New York: Facts on File. Any virtue that a man has, even if he has many vices, should not be used as a tool against him." It was followed by the AEC's Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award in 1962. As a junior physicist, he was not central to the project. Physical Review A (published December 1986).

Because Feynman was no longer working at the Los Alamos Laboratory, he was no longer exempt from the draft. Commentary by Joan Feynman, John Wheeler, Hans Bethe, Julian Schwinger, Murray Gell-Mann, Daniel Hillis, David Goodstein, Freeman Dyson, and Laurie Brown Dyson, Freeman (1979) Disturbing the Universe. "Richard Feynman Dead at 69; Leading Theoretical Physicist". Feynman amused himself by investigating the combination locks on cabinets and desks used to secure papers. Because of Strauss's actions in stripping Oppenheimer of his security clearance, Feynman was reluctant to accept the award, but Isidor Isaac Rabi cautioned him: "You should never turn a man's generosity as a sword against him. Surely You're Joking,. Feynman knew that this sort of behavior was illegal under the Mann Act, so he had a friend, Matthew Sands, act as her sponsor. He was convinced that Feynman's formulation was easier to understand, and ultimately managed to convince Oppenheimer that this was the case. A member of the Arista Honor Society, in his last year in high school he won the New York University Math Championship. Attendees at Feynman's first seminar, which was on the classical version of the Wheeler-Feynman absorber theory, included Albert Einstein, Wolfgang Pauli, and John von Neumann. Michael Morisy; Robert Hovden (June 6, 2012). 180 The main building for the Computing Division at Fermilab is named the "Feynman Computing Center" in his honor.
