What is Diagram: Definition and 1000 Discussions

A diagram is a symbolic representation of information using visualization techniques. Diagrams have been used since ancient times on walls of caves, but became more prevalent during the Enlightenment. Sometimes, the technique uses a three-dimensional visualization which is then projected onto a two-dimensional surface. The word graph is sometimes used as a synonym for diagram.

    Question about Feynman diagram showing annihilation

    This is Feynman diagram of annihilation I get from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annihilation I don't understand what the middle line with arrow to the right is. If I consider the left vertex and conservation of charge, it means the horizontal line with arrow to the right should carry...
