Physics and philosophy : the revolution in modern science by
Werner Heisenberg(
Book
)
114 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 2,327 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
)
75 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,638 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. In this classic, based on lectures delivered at the University of Chicago, Heisenberg presents a complete physical picture of quantum theory. He covers not only his own contributions, but also those of Bohr, Dirac, Bose, de Broglie, Fermi, Einstein, Pauli, Schrodinger, Somerfield, Rupp, ·Wilson, Germer, and others in a text written for the physical scientist who is not a specialist in quantum theory or in modern mathematics. Partial contents: introduction (theory and experiment, fundamental concepts); critique of physical concepts of the corpuscular theory (uncertainty relations and their illustration); critique of the physical concepts of the wave theory (uncertainty relations for waves, discussion of an actual measurement of the electromagnetic field); statistical interpretation of quantum theory (mathematical considerations, interference of probabilities, Bohr's complementarity); discussion of important experiments (C.T.R. Wilson, diffraction, EinsteinRupp, emission, absorption and dispersion of radiation, interference and conservation laws, Compton effect, radiation fluctuation phenomena, relativistic formulation of the quantum theory). An 80page appendix on the mathematical apparatus of the quantum theory is provided for the specialist

Nuclear physics by
Werner Heisenberg(
Book
)
35 editions published between 1942 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Nobel Prize{u2013}winning physicist who developed the famous uncertainty principle, Nuclear Physics provides an indepth look at the study of the atom. The book was compiled from a series of Heisenberg{u2019}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
