Hallo! I know, I know - everywhere it says "NO HOMEWORK", but I am not entirely sure if writing a Historical Paper on Quantum Field Theory is classified as homework so will attempt to post it here - if it is classed, then I'm very sorry (please move this thread to the correct place). So yes, as just mentioned, I am currently halfway through writing a paper on the Historical side Quantum Field Theory for my EPQ (It's.. a British thesis of sorts). When conducting my research I kept coming across one name I'd never heard of while researching the Foundations of the subject (1920's era). This was Pascual Jordan. Naturally I did some research on him and found that he was one of the fathers of the theory and his name was all over QFT papers until about 1933, but however joined the Nazi party and so was ignored for the rest of his life. So my question is, fellow Physicists, what is your opinion? Have you heard of Jordan - Even just in passing? He co-authored papers with Heisenberg and Born yet he is never mentioned in all the most niche journals and papers. I would love other people's opinion on his "non-mentioned-ness" as I believe I do need to get a general feeling from the Physicists of today. Do you think he should be given some recognition or not? Maybe he has received a lot of recognition and I have merely been looking in all the wrong places! If you know of such papers - please by all means kindly post them here. I have found arXiv:hep-th/0303241 which was rather useful. This started as just some necessary work, but it has sparked a genuine interest for me! Please, genuine answers. I asked someone I knew took Physics at Uni and they were going "oh yeh.. yeh.. I've heard of him. Great man".Well obviously he hadn't heard of him. Grr. As a Jew, I obviously know the atrocities of the Nazi party so am in no way condoning his actions joining the party. Thank you for your co-operation. Holly Middleton-Spencer.
