Caption: Vladimir Aleksandrovich Fock (1898-1974), Russian physicist. Fock was born at Saint Petersburg and studied at the Petrograd University. His main work was in quantum physics, especially in quantum electrodynamics. He created the concept of the Fock space, a quantum state of an unlimited number of particles that extended Hilbert's single-particle quantum space. Fock also made considerable advances in theoretical optics and devised the electromagnetic theory behind geophysical prospecting. Fock was notable for championing the study of relativity in the Marxist political environment of the Soviet Union by reconciling materialistic relativity and Marxist theory.
