>"A theory with mathematical beauty is more likely to be correct than an
ugly one that fits some experimental data. God is a mathematician of a
very high order, and He used very advanced mathematics in constructing the
universe."
>
>- Paul Dirac, 1902-1984
>(British physicist who worked out a version of quantum mechanics
consistent with special relativity. The existence of antiparticles, such
as the positron, was one of its predictions. He shared the Nobel Prize for
physics in 1933 with Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger.
