A Feynman diagram is a tool invented by American physicist Richard Feynman for performing scattering calculations in quantum field theory.
A Feynman graph is a graph suitable to be a Feynman diagram in a particular application of quantum field theory.

(The most common use is when each field has quanta (particles) associated with it - as the quantum of the electromagnetic field is a photon.
The Feynman-Kac formula, named after Richard Feynman and Mark Kac, establishes a link between partial differential equations (PDEs) and stochastic processes. It offers a method of solving certain PDEs by simulating random paths of a stochastic process.
The Feynman Lectures on Physics, by Richard Feynman, Robert Leighton, and Matthew Sands is perhaps Feynman's most accessible technical work, and is considered a classic introduction to modern physics, including lectures on mathematics, electromagnetism, Newtonian physics,
path integral formulation of quantum mechanics is a description of quantum theory which generalizes the action principle of classical mechanics. It replaces the classical notion of a single, unique history for a system with a sum, or functional integral, over an infinity of
Feynman parametrization is a technique for evaluating loop integrals which arise from Feynman diagrams with one or more loops. However, it is sometimes useful in integration in areas of pure mathematics too.
The Feynman Checkerboard is a discrete representation of the Dirac equation in (1+1)-dimensional spacetime. It is named after Richard Feynman who presented this model in his 1965 book on path integrals.
Feynman Point is the sequence of six 9s which begins at the 762nd decimal place of π. It is named after physicist Richard Feynman, who once stated during a lecture he would like to memorize the digits of π until that point, so he could recite them and quip
Feynman slash notation (less commonly known as the Dirac slash notation). If A is a covariant vector, i.e. 1-form,

In physics, a one-loop Feynman diagram is a connected Feynman diagram with only one cycle (unicyclic). Such a diagram can be obtained from a tree diagram by adding an edge connecting two internal vertices (of course, this is only possible in general if we ignore the vertex matching

Michelle Catherine Feynman (born 1968) is the daughter of physicist Richard Feynman and sister of Carl Feynman.[1] She is best known as the editor of Perfectly Reasonable Deviations From The Beaten Track: The Letters Of Richard P.
Carl Richard Feynman (b. April 22, 1962) is a computer engineer and an author. He is the son of famous physicist Richard P. Feynman, and brother of Michelle Feynman. He has worked on various computer ventures including supercomputer manufacturer Thinking Machines.
Joan Feynman (b. 31 March 1928) is an astrophysicist who made original studies of the interactions between the solar wind and the Earth's magnetosphere. While working at the NASA Ames Research Centre in 1971, Feynman showed that coronal mass injections could be identified by the
