Principles of optics : electromagnetic theory of propagation, interference and diffraction of light by Max Born( Book )

253 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 4,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic text presents optics deductively as a system based on Maxwell's equations. It deals with those optical phenomena that can be described with the help of a continuous distribution of matter, and provides an overview of optics as a whole
Einstein's theory of relativity by Max Born( Book )

146 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Nobel Prize-winning physicist explains the historical background and scientific principles of Einstein's famous theory
Atomic physics by Max Born( Book )

214 editions published between 1935 and 1989 in 5 languages and held by 2,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nobel Laureate's brilliant exposition of the kinetic theory of gases, elementary particles, the nuclear atom, wave-corpuscles, atomic structure and spectral lines, electron spin and Pauli's principle, quantum statistics, molecular structure and nuclear physics. Over 40 appendices, a bibliography, numerous figures and graphs
The Born-Einstein letters; correspondence between Albert Einstein and Max and Hedwig Born from 1916 to 1955 by Albert Einstein( Book )

89 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert Einstein and Max Born were giants of physics and great friends. Their letters span forty years and two world wars. In them they argue about quantum theory, agree about Beethoven's heavenly violin and piano duets (which they played together when they met) and chat about their families. Equally important, the men commiserate over the tragic plight of European Jewry and discuss what part they should play in the tumultuous politics of the time." "First published by Macmillan in 1971, The Born-Einstein Letters is fascinating historically. As the world celebrates the centenary of relativity theory, it is also highly topical: scientists continue to struggle with quantum physics, their role in wartime and the public's misunderstanding."--BOOK JACKET
The restless universe by Max Born( Book )

50 editions published between 1935 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly readable introduction to modern physics was written by a giant of quantum mechanics. Gifted with a rare ability to explain complicated scientific concepts to lay readers, Nobel laureate Max Born presents a step-by-step guide to the understanding of molecules, atoms, subatomic particles, and nuclear physics. Starting with explanations of molecular motion and the kinetic theory of gases, Born advances to the laws of chance, conduction of heat, molecular weight, relativity, mass and energy, electronic charges, gaseous ions, light waves, light quanta, and spectral lines of gases. Subsequent topics include electron waves, Bohr's theory of the hydrogen atom, wave mechanics, Pauli's exclusion principle, cosmic rays, nuclear structure, and dozens of related subjects. Profusely illustrated with helpful figures and drawings, the text includes an extensive appendix that explains the historical and social significance of developments in modern physics
Dynamical theory of crystal lattices by Max Born( Book )

Physics in my generation by Max Born( Book )

53 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Born, one of the most distinguished physicists of our time, has selected some of his most popular writings covering a period of thirty years, framed between his introduction to Einstein's Theory of Relativity (1921) and the postscript to the American edition of The Restless Universe (1951). It includes several discussions of Einstein's work, a short autobiography and articles dealing with the philosophical background of physics and its revolutionary changes during Professor Born's lifetime. Each treatment of a problem illuminates it from a different angle - all of them from a personal point of view
Optik; ein Lehrbuch der elektromagnetischen Lichttheorie by Max Born( Book )

67 editions published between 1932 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch unterscheidet sich von alteren Darstellungen der Optik durch die Grenzziehung gegen andere Gebiete der Physik. Die liberkommene Einteilung (Mechanik, Elektrizitat und Magnetismus, Optik, Thermodynamik, erganzt durch kinetische Theorie der Materie und Atomphysik) ist wohl vorlaufig flir den Unterricht noch unentbehrlich, so wenig sie auch der Einheit des Lehr­ gebaudes Rechnung tragt. Die Optik ist seit langem als elektromagnetische Lichttheorie ein Sonderkapitel der allgemeinen Lehre yom elektromagnetischen Felde. Man kann sich dabei natlirlich nicht auf das sichtbare Licht beschra
