# THE HEISENBERG–EULER EFFECTIVE ACTION: 75 YEARS ON

@article{Dunne2012THEHE, title={THE HEISENBERG–EULER EFFECTIVE ACTION: 75 YEARS ON}, author={Gerald V. Dunne}, journal={International Journal of Modern Physics A}, year={2012}, volume={27}, pages={1260004} }

On this 75th anniversary of the publication of the Heisenberg–Euler paper on the full nonperturbative one-loop effective action for quantum electrodynamics I review their paper and discuss some of the impacts it has had on quantum field theory.
