I am completely unfamiliar with category Stone or Stone Spaces.

I have recently read Ash and Gross ‘Fearless Symmetry’ that was on the Vacation reading thread at MoonshineMath.

I really like this book.

In other reading Paul J Nahin, Dr. Euler’s Fabulous Formula: Cures Many Mathematical Ills, asserts these academic accomplishments by Paul AM Dirac. His Nobel biography seems to confirm this.

BS – 1921 – Engineering (electrical)

PhD – 1926 – Mathematics

Employment – 1927 on – Mathematics

Focus – 1928 on – Quantum mechanics

Award – 1933 – Nobel in Physics “for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory” with Erwin Schrödinger.

Maybe more physicists need to study the mathematics of electrical engineering?

“Although Dirac made vastly important contributions to physics, it is important to realise that he was always motivated by principles of mathematical beauty.”
