Physics and philosophy : the revolution in modern science by Werner Heisenberg( Book )

117 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 2,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seminal work by one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century, Physics and Philosophy is Werner Heisenberg's concise and accessible narrative of the revolution in modern physics, in which he played a towering role. A brilliant scientist whose ideas altered our perception of the universe, Heisenberg is considered the father of quantum physics; he is most famous for the Uncertainty Principle, which states that quantum particles do not occupy a fixed, measurable position. His contributions remain a cornerstone of contemporary physics theory and application
The physical principles of the quantum theory by Werner Heisenberg( Book )

140 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions of few contemporary scientists have been as far reaching in their effects as those of Nobel Laureate Werner Heisenberg. His matrix theory is one of the bases of modern quantum mechanics, while his "uncertainty principle" has altered our whole philosophy of science

Nuclear physics by Werner Heisenberg( Book )

35 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Nobel Prize-winning physicist who developed the famous uncertainty principle, Nuclear Physics provides an in-depth look at the study of the atom. The book was compiled from a series of Heisenberg's lectures on the subject, and is detailed and accessible enough for anyone interested in the subject. Heisenberg begins with a short history of atomic physics before delving into the theory of the processes and reactions within the atom. Nuclear Physics is an essential book to understanding the atom, giving readers an unparalleled look at nuclear physics from one of the greatest scientific minds of the twentieth century

Die Physik der Atomkerne : acht Vorträge, gehalten auf Veranlassung des Verbandes Deutscher Elektrotechniker by Werner Heisenberg( Book )

43 editions published between 1942 and 1949 in German and Undetermined and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1m Frlihjahr des Jahres 1942 hatte ieh auf Einladung des Verb andes Deutscher Elektrotechniker in der Technischen Hoch schule Charlottenburg acht Vortrage liber die Physik der Atom kerne zu halten. Zu einer nachtraglichen genaueren Ausarbei tung lieBen mir andere dringende Aufgaben keine Zeit. Da erbot sieh freundlicherweise der Herausgeber dieser Sammlung, Pro fessor Westphal, den Text der Vortrage nach dem aufgenoIll menen Stenogramm und auf Grund der Vorarbeiten von Frau Dr. Jorges auszuarbeiten und seine groBe Erfahrung in der all gemeinverstandlichen Darstellung physikalischer Gedanken gange in den Dienst dieses Buches zu stellen. Das so entstandene Blichlein ist, ebenso wie die acht Vor trage, fUr naturwissenschaftlich interessierte Leser bestimmt, die keine theoretisch-physikalische Fachausbildung hinter sieh haben, die aber do(:, h ein gewisses Verstandnis fUr physikalische Begriffsbildungen mitbringen. Auf den Wunsch des Verbandes Deutscher Elektrotechniker ist eine kurze Geschiehte der Atom physik'und eine allgemeine Ubersicht liber die heutigen Kennt nisse vom Atombau der eigentlichen Kernphysik vorangestellt worden. Ein wirkliches Verstandnis der Atomphysik ist aus einer derartigen Ubersieht natlirlich nieht zu gewinnen, aber vielleieht genligt der Uberblick doch als Grundlage fUr ein Ver standnis der folgenden Vortrage liber Kernphysik. Bei der Dar stellung der Kernphysik bin ieh von anderen allgemeinverstand lichen Darstellungen dieses Gebietes insofern abgewiehen, als ich mieh bemliht habe, die Theorie der Vorgange im Atomkern in den Vordergrund zu stell en und die praktischen Anwendungen erst am SchluB zu besprechen

Heisenberg and the Nazi atomic bomb project : a study in German culture by Paul Lawrence Rose( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Digging deep into the archival record among formerly secret technical reports, Rose examines early thinking about the atomic bomb not only on the German side but also among Allied scientists. He finds that the early history of fission bomb physics had no shortage of false starts and fumbles in both camps. But, whereas the Allied physicists' ideas crystallized into a realistic prospect for a bomb toward the end of 1940. Heisenberg's basic misconceptions persisted, influencing the German leaders not to push for atomic weapons. In fact, Heisenberg never had to face the moral problem of whether he should design an actual bomb for the Nazi regime. Rose's exploration of the German mentality that made it quite reasonable for "unpolitical" scientists to support the regime in power, whatever its form, shows the extent to which Heisenberg and others could devote themselves to research they regarded as patriotic
Quantum mechanics and objectivity; a study of the physical philosophy of Werner Heisenberg by Patrick A Heelan( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum mechanics has raised in an acute form three problems which go to the heart of man's relationship with nature through experimental science: (r) the public objectivity of science, that is, its value as a universal science for all investigators; (2) the empirical objectivity of scientific objects, that is, man's ability to construct a precise or causal spatio-temporal model of microscopic systems; and finally (3), the formal objectivity of science, that is, its value as an expression of what nature is independently of its being an object of human knowledge. These are three aspects of what is generally called the "crisis of objec tivity" or the "crisis of realism" in modern physics. This crisis is. studied in the light of Werner Heisenberg's work. Heisenberg was one of the architects of quantum mechanics, and we have chosen his writings as the principal source-material for this study. Among physicists of the microscopic domain, no one except perhaps Bohr has expressed himself so abundantly and so profoundly on the philosophy of science as Heisenberg. His writings, both technical and non-technical, show an awareness of the mysterious element in scientific knowledge, far from the facile positivism of Bohr and others of his contemporaries. The mystery of human knowledge and human SUbjectivity is for him an abiding source of wonder
