"100 Years of Feynman and 30 without him: reminiscences from his last year"

Abstract:

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth and 30 years since the passing of Richard Feynman, a brilliantly creative physicist and a legendary personality in science and society at large. During the last year of his life at Caltech Feynman became fascinated by integrable models, his involvement and enthusiasm inspiring and motivating both experts and novices in the field. I will attempt to give a glimpse into Feynman's thinking and personality through the lens of personal memories and mementos from that last year.
