Aspects of quantum theory ( Book )
19 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The twelve articles in this volume discuss various aspects of quantum mechanics which owe their origin to the work fo P.A.M. Dirac. Each of the distinguished contributors reviews Dirac's work and discusses its development in some detail. Since Dirac's work ranged widely, the resulting volume constitutes a valable survey of the state of quantum mechanics. A small part of the book contains personal reminiscences of Dirac in Cambridge and of his early visits to the U.S.A. and gives a historical account of the development of quantum mechanics during the decade 1924-1933, termed the "golden age of theoretical physics"

The aim of the lecture series presented at the International School of Physics Enrico Fermi, Varenna, Italy, is to present the main steps to follow in the standard proof of dispersion relations. Seven papers which were presented in course number 29 are contained in this book. These papers are: (1) The Role of Invariance Principles in Natural Philosophy, by E.P. Wigner; (2) The Proof of Dispersion Relations, by M. Froissart; (3) Causality, RMatrix, and Collision Matrix, by E.P. Wigner; (4) Dispersion Relations and Applications, by D.Y. Wong; (5) The Nonrelativistic Angular-Momentum Plane, by R.G. Newton; (6) Production Amplitudes, by P.V. Landshoff; and (7) High-Energy Scattering and Dispersion Theory, by R. Oehme. (Author)

Philosophical reflections and syntheses by Eugene Paul Wigner ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Among the founding fathers of modern quantum physics few have contributed to our basic understanding of its concepts as much as E.P. Wigner. His articles on the epistemology of quantum mechanics and the measurement problem, and the basic role of symmetries were of fundamental importance for all subsequent work. He was also the first to discuss the concept of consciousness from the point of view of modern physics. G.G. Emch edited most of those papers and wrote a very helpful introduction into Wigner's contributions to Natural Philosophy. The book should be a gem for all those interested in the history and philosophy of science. From a review by Silvan S. Schweber in Physics Today, October 1996: "All of the essays in Volume VI are at the level of the curious nonexpert who possesses a minimal command of the quantum mechanical formalism. They are rigorous, lucid and challenging."
