Hi there everyone. I'll try to keep this short. I'm currently a sophomore at a local college. I'm in Honors Calculus 1 and part of the honors course requires a research project at the end of the semester. I'm studying to be an ER Doctor/Particle Physicist, yes I know this will take some time, I have set aside the 10-12 years it will take, I work full-time, school full-time and have a wife and daughter. I am determined to achieve that degree. There's alot more, ask if you want to know about the repoman trying to be a Physician-Scientist.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyways, my idea for my project is to take two Feynman Diagrams, and explain the mathematics behind it. I figure in this way I can show off the Feynman diagrams, show the genius of his work and celebrate the man at the same time. Feynman is a personal hero of mine. Problem is I'm a calculus 1 student, regardless of how good I am at math, I simply don't have the upper level math required for some of these calculations. I understand what the diagrams represent how a particle enters a reaction and how it comes out, but there needs to be a Calculus element for my class.

I'm looking for either suggestions or some resources to find out more. Everything I seem to find is talking about levels of Calculus that are way above my head at the moment. The only document I've found is from UC-Berkeley going through Taylor Series which has some information I can actually understand.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

PS: For the record I have opened communication with the Physics professors on campus for help as well and am in the process of teaching myself Feynman's work.
