Dirac was the initial formulator of quantum electrodynamics. During the 1930s, he became increasingly dissatisfied with QED and began improving the theory of the classical electron and extending his results into the quantum domain. These are two papers written while he was working at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies.
