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

122 editions published between 1958 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 2,318 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 )

149 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,100 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, Einstein-Rupp, emission, absorption and dispersion of radiation, interference and conservation laws, Compton effect, radiation fluctuation phenomena, relativistic formulation of the quantum theory). An 80-page appendix on the mathematical apparatus of the quantum theory is provided for the specialist

Nuclear physics by Werner Heisenberg( Book )

35 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 802 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 )

44 editions published between 1942 and 1949 in German and Undetermined and held by 272 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
