"Feynman╩╝s Footprints: Quantum Field Theory in Nuclear and Particle Physics"
ABSTRACT:

2018 is the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Richard Feynman.
His discoveries and new formalisms, and the way he thought about
solving problems, transformed the way we think
about physics. I will talk about examples of how these impacted present results
in nuclear and particle physics.

I will also expand upon what might be called Feynmanʼs Scientific Method,
and how by following that method we can become better scientists ourselves
and nurture the next generation of scientists.
