Most widely held works by Alan Holden
Crystals and crystal growing by Alan Holden( Book )

52 editions published between 1960 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experiments and problems to be done by the non-specialist to aid in his understanding of crystals
The nature of solids by Alan Holden( Book )

38 editions published between 1965 and 1992 in 5 languages and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shapes, space, and symmetry by Alan Holden( Book )

29 editions published between 1971 and 1992 in English and French and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explains the structure of the 9 regular solids, including the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron, plus many semiregular solids. It demonstrates how they can be used to explain mathematics visually rather than by symbol systems, and includes instructions for constructing cardboard models. Over 300 illustrations
Bonds between atoms by Alan Holden( Book )

16 editions published between 1966 and 1971 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of inquiry into how atoms are bonded together to form molecules and solids crosses the borderlines between physics and chemistry encompassing methods characteristic of both sciences. At one extreme, the inquiry is pursued with care and rigor into the simplest cases; at the other extreme, suggestions derived from the more careful inquiry are pushed to provide qualitative insights into the complexities of chemical behavior. This monograph provides an introduction to both points of view and to the relationship between them. Primary emphasis is on the physical nature of the simplest chemical bonds, though it examines a few molecules that are more complicated to point out the wide qualitative relevance of the more rigorous approach. Extensive use of simplified models is made. (Author/RH)
The nature of atoms by Alan Holden( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph was written for the purpose of presenting physics to college students who are not preparing for careers in physics. It deals with the nature of atoms, and treats the following topics: (1) the atomic hypothesis, (2) the chemical elements, (3) models of an atom, (4) a particle in a one-dimensional well, (5) a particle in a central field, (6) angular momentum of a particle in a central field, (7) hydrogen-like atomic states, (8) the building-up principle, (9) the two-electron delta-well atom, and (10) many-electron atoms. All but the first three chapters presuppose an acquaintance with wave mechanics. The monograph is one of a series resulting from the Conference of the Commission on College Physics on the New Instructional Materials in Physics. (Dh)
Orderly tangles : cloverleafs, gordian knots, and regular polylinks by Alan Holden( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stationary states by Alan Holden( Book )

14 editions published in 1971 in English and Spanish and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stationary States summarized the quantum mechanical ideas and techniques used in [The Nature of Atoms and Bonds Between Atoms]. It describes the origins of these ideas and their embodiment in methods for gaining insight into the behavior of electronic systems."--Back cover
Growing crystals with a rotary crystallizer by Alan Holden( Book )

La struttura dei cristalli : l'ordine nella natura by Alan Holden( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in Italian and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La coltivazione dei cristalli by Alan Holden( Book )

4 editions published between 1968 and 1981 in Italian and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wave-mechanical properties of stationary states by Alan Holden( Book )

5 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is a review of the quantum mechanical concepts presented in two other monographs, "The Nature of Atoms" and "Bonds Between Atoms," by the same author. It is assumed the reader is familiar with these ideas. The monograph sketches only those aspects of quantum mechanics that are of most direct use in picturing and calculating the behavior of atoms when they are stably bonded together in molecules and solids. Its emphasis is on stationary states; it does not deal with processes. The chapters are as follows: Wave-Like and Particle-Like Behavior; Probability and Stationary States; Uncertainty and the Particle in a Box; Schroedinger's Equation; Wave Functions, Operators, and The Harmonic Oscillator; Orthogonality and Kinetic Energy; The Variational Method of Approximation; The Spinning Electron; Symmetry and the Exclusion Principle. Problems are included at the end of each chapter. (Pr)
Crystals( Visual )

3 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan Holden explains the nature of crystals, how they are formed, and why they are shaped as they are. He shows crystal growth under a microscope, and relates these phenomena to the concept of atoms
