"These are the lecture notes as Fermi prepared them in his own hand the last time he gave the course in quantum mechanics at The University of Chicago in 1954. Fermi wrote them directly on hectrograph masters so that copies could be distributed to students who were following the lectures. They have been reproduced in facsimile in order to preserve in as personal a way as possible that unique quality of Fermi's for lecturing simply and clearly on the most essential aspects of a difficult but important subject."--Page 4 of cover

Fermi remembered by James W Cronin( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fermi Remembered combines essays and newly commissioned reminiscences with private material from Fermi's research notebooks, correspondence, speech outlines, and lectures to document the profound and enduring significance of Fermi's life and labors. In candid recollections of Fermi by his colleagues and students, the eminent physicist emerges as a three-dimensional character who, for example, with his wife Laura, opened his home to young people for square dances during which the discussion of physics was forbidden
Neutron physics for nuclear reactors : unpublished writings by Enrico Fermi( Book )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 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accurate and very detailed description of the functioning and operation of basic nuclear reactors, as emerging from yet unpublished papers by Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi.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

Enrico Fermi : his work and legacy by Enrico Fermi( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enrico Fermis scientific work, noted for its originality and breadth, has had lasting consequences throughout modern science. Written by close colleagues as well as scientists whose fields were profoundly influenced by Fermi, the papers collected here constitute a tribute to him and his scientific legacy. They were commissioned on the occasion of his 100th birthday by the Italian Physical Society and confirm that Fermi was a rare combination of theorist, experimentalist, teacher, and inspiring colleague. The book is organized into three parts: three biographical overviews by close colleagues, replete with personal insights; fourteen analyses of Fermis impact by specialists in their fields, spanning physics, chemistry, mathematics, and engineering; and a year-by-year chronology of Fermis scientific endeavors. Written for a general scientific audience, "Enrico Fermi: His Work and Legacy" offers a highly readable source on the life of one of the 20th century's most distinguished scientists and a must for everybody interested in the history of modern science
