Aspects of quantum theory
(
Book
)
21 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and held by 579 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 19241933, termed the "golden age of theoretical physics"

Philosophical reflections and syntheses
by
Eugene Paul Wigner(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and German and held by 85 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."

Eugene Paul Wigner(
)
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 35 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

The collected works of Eugene Paul Wigner
by
Eugene Paul Wigner(
)
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eugene Wigner is one of the few giants of 20thcentury physics. His early work helped to shape quantum mechanics, he laid the foundations of nuclear physics and nuclear engineering, and he contributed significantly to solidstate 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
