In 1928 Dirac combined the theories of quantum mechanics and special relativity.  The resulting Dirac Equation was able to explain the mysterious magnetic and spin properties of the electron.  two years later, he formulated a theoretical model of the vacuum as an infinite sea of particles possessing negative energy; this became known as the Dirac Sea.<br>

The title At the Shore of the Dirac Sea is intended to invoke the idea of a literal ocean, deep and uncharted, its waves lapping at the shore where Dirac stood.
