Freeman Dyson is one of the giants in the world of physics. His career intersected with the likes of Robert Oppenheimer, Niels Bohr, and Stephen Hawking—all portrayed in Dyson’s new book—and he famously demonstrated to other physicists that Richard Feynman’s theory of quantum electrodynamics (QED) was valid. Dyson, professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Studies and author of the recent memoir Maker of Patterns: An Autobiography Through Letters, will discuss his life and work.
