(physics) A pictorial representation of the interactions of subatomic
particles, showing their paths in space and time as lines, and their
interactions as points where lines meet.
That looks like two words to me.
Yabbut they intersect.
At which point? Can you draw me a Feynman diagram?
It's done using visual imagination. There's a Feynman, holding a
pencil or a piece of chalk or a crayon or pen, and a surface upon
which the Feynman draws a diagram. Or there's just a Feynman who
waves his hands about and talks. Or there's a substitute
Feynman. Or there's a written description of the
There are also potential meta-Feynman diagrams, such as the lines
joining all the books in a libraray which discuss Feynman
diagrams. These can be sub-divided into 'static' and 'dynamic'
varieties depending on how they react when the books are moved.
Interactions take place in the vicinity of students and
researchers and librarians.
Then there are the paths of all the electrons and energy particles
involved in the transmission storage and distribution of
discussions such as this. These currently exist as a network (or
rather, a web) somewhat larger than this planet.
