  • Trivia

    • The final question in the physics bowl is the so-called first-order Feynman-diagram for the electromagnetic scattering of an electron with a muon combined with its associated amplitude-formula. The Feynman-formalism is the key-element in modern particle physics, so it is impossible that none of the PMS-guys recognize it and even Sheldon is not able to solve a calculation that could actually be given as homework to a physics student in his third or fourth year. Also, the given answer 8πα is actually not the correct solution to the given formula.
