Dirac's conjecture

  1. May 11, 2010 #1
    Hey there!

    I want to make myself familiar with Dirac's conjeture. Does anyone know a good source for it? I don't want to read his paper form the 50ies and hope there is a more pedagogical introduction of the topic... :)

    Thanks!

    What is Dirac's conjecture? I just finished reading an excellent biography about Dirac, and I am not sure what you mean. His large numbers hypothesis?

    Was it "The Strangest Man"?

    Hey!

    Dirac's conjecture basically says that gauge transformations of a system are generated by the system's constraints. (At least I think that it is called Dirac's conjecture... :) )
