Dirac shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with Erwin Schrödinger in 1933 for his "discovery of new fertile forms of the theory of atoms and for its applications." Few of Dirac's theories were simple to grasp, and for that reason he had few students during his career.

Dirac was born in Bristol, England on August 8, 1902 to Charles Adrien Ladislas Dirac, a Swiss immigrant, and Florence Hannah (Holten) Dirac, a native of Britain.

Dirac was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge from 1932 to 1969.

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, OM, FRS (IPA: [dÉª'rÃ¦k]) (August 8, 1902 – October 20, 1984) was a British theoretical physicist and a founder of the field of quantum physics.

Thus reinterpreted, the Dirac equation is as central to theoretical physics as the Maxwell, Yang-Mills and Einstein field equations.
