Neutron physics for nuclear reactors : unpublished writings by Enrico Fermi( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique volume gives an accurate and very detailed description of the functioning and operation of basic nuclear reactors, as emerging from yet unpublished papers by Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi. In the first part, the entire course of lectures on Neutron Physics delivered by Fermi at Los Alamos is reported, according to the version made by Anthony P French. Here, the fundamental physical phenomena are described very clearly and comprehensively, giving the appropriate physics grounds for the functioning of nuclear piles. In the second part, all the patents issued by Fermi (and coworkers) on the functioning, construction and operation of several different kinds of nuclear reactors are reported. Here, the main engineering problems are encountered and solved by employing simple and practical methods, which are described in detail. This seminal work mainly caters to students, teachers and researchers working in nuclear physics and engineering, but it is of invaluable interest to historians of physics too, since the material presented here is entirely novel
Ettore Majorana : unpublished research notes on theoretical physics by Giancarlo Ghirardi( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The editors of this volume bring to life a major part of Ettore Majorana's work that up to now was not accessible to the general audience. These are the contents of the Quaderni (notebooks) of Ettore Majorana, edited and translated in English." "Ettore Majorana had an astounding talent for Physics that made an impression on all the colleagues who had the opportunity to know him. Enrico Fermi, who took him in his group when he was a student, ranked him with Galilei and Newton. Ettore Majorana's career was cut short in 1938, as he mysteriously disappeared at the age of 32, leaving many unpublished works." "This book reveals an interesting perspective over the points of view, the interests, the approach to physical problems of this great physicist and it shows that he had advanced his comprehension of physics to levels that were only reached by other physicists ten years after, or even later."--BOOK JACKET
Ettore Majorana : unpublished research notes on theoretical physics by Ettore Majorana( )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physics of Ettore Majorana : phenomenological, theoretical, and mathematical by Salvatore Esposito( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ettore Majorana left an indelible mark in physics, mathematics, computer science and even economics before his mysterious disappearance. This unique volume explores Majorana's known papers and unveils his unpublished works, and will fascinate graduate students and researchers interested in the history of science
Ettore Majorana: unveiled genius and endless mysteries by Salvatore Esposito( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography sheds new light on the life and work of physicist Ettore Majorana (including unpublished contributions), as well as on his mysterious disappearance in March 1938. Majorana is held by many, including Nobel Laureate, Enrico Fermi, to have been a genius of the rank of Galilei and Newton. In this intriguing story, the author, himself a leading expert on the work of Majorana, supplements the existing literature with new insights, anecdotes and personal accounts of contemporaries of Majorana
