Group theory and its application to the quantum mechanics of atomic spectra by Eugene Paul Wigner( Book )

Aspects of quantum theory by P. A. M Dirac( Book )

24 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and held by 588 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."

Gruppentheorie und ihre Anwendung auf die Quantenmechanik der Atomspektren by Eugene Paul Wigner( Book )

39 editions published between 1931 and 1977 in German and English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch ist aus dem Wunsche entstanden, die An wendung gruppen theoretischer Methoden in der Quantenmechanik einem weiteren Leserkreis zugänglich zu machen. Die wirk liche Lösung der quantenmechanischen Differentialgleichungen stößt im allgemeinen auf so große Schwierigkeiten, daß man durch direkte Rechnung zumeist nur eine grobe Annäherung zu erreichen vermag. Um so erfreulicher ist es, daß ein so großer Teil der quantenmechanischen Resultate schon durch reine Symmetrieüberlegungen erhalten werden kann. Man hat gegen die gruppentheoi'etische Behandlung der Schrödingergleichung oft den Einwand erhoben, daß sie "nicht physikalisch" sei. Es scheint mir aber, daf$ die bewußte Aus nutzung elementarer Symmetrieeigenschaften dem physikalischen Gefühl eher entsprechen muß, als die mehr rechnerische Be handlung. Der erwähnte Einwand dürfte darauf zurückzuführen sein, daß die Gruppentheorie einen wesentlich anderen Charakter hat, als die dem Physiker hauptsächlich geläufigen Teile der Mathematik, so daß es immerhin einige Zeit erfordert, bis man sich mit ihr befreundet hat. Sie besteht nämlich aus einer großen Zahl unscheinbarer Schlüsse, die zwar einzeln betrachtet trivial, in ihrer Gesamtheit aber doch nicht so leicht zu über blicken sind. Deshalb hielt ich es schon im Interesse des ungeübten Lesers für ratsam, alle Zwischenüberlegungen nach Möglich keit explizite auszuführen. Um das richtige "sich zu Hause fühlen" im Gegenstand zu erleichtern, wurde vom mathema tischen Teil wesentlich mehr gebracht, als für die physikalischen VI Vorwort Anwendungen notwendig gewesen wäre. In den physikalischen Anwendungen wollte ich mich auf einen Gegenstand beschränken und habe als dit'sen die Theorie der Atomspektren gewählt

Eugene Wigner is one of the few giants of 20th-century physics. His early work helped to shape quantum mechanics, he laid the foundations of nuclear physics and nuclear engineering, and he contributed significantly to solid-state physics. His philosophical and political writings are widely known. All his works will be reprinted in Eugene Paul Wigner's Collected Workstogether with descriptive annotations by outstanding scientists. The present volume begins with a short biographical sketch followed by Wigner's papers on group theory, an extremely powerful tool he created for theoretical quantum physics. They are presented in two parts. The first, annotated by B. Judd, covers applications to atomic and molecular spectra, term structure, time reversal and spin. In the second, G. Mackey introduces to the reader the mathematical papers, many of which are outstanding contributions to the theory of unitary representations of groups, including the famous paper on the Lorentz group

Philosophical reflections and syntheses by Eugene Paul Wigner( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and German and held by 119 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."

The collected works of Eugene Paul Wigner by Eugene Paul Wigner( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and German and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not only was E.P. Wigner one of the most active creators of 20th century physics, he was also always interested in expressing his opinion in philosophical, political or sociological matters. This volume of his collected works covers a wide selection of his essays about science and society, about himself and his colleagues. Annotated by J. Mehra, this volume will become an important source of reference for historians of science, and it will be pleasant reading for every physicist interested in forming ideas in modern physics
