I am very happy to accept the translators' invitation to write a few lines of introduction to this book. Of course, there is little need to explain the author. Pauli's first famous work, his article on the theory of relativity in the Encyc!opiidie der Mathematischen Wissenschaften was written at the age of twenty. He afterwards took part in the development of atomic physics from the still essentially classical picture of Bohr's early work to the true quantum mechanics. Thereaftt'f, some of his work concerned the treatment of problems in the framework of the new theory, especially his paper on the hydrogen atom following the matrix method without recourse to Schrodinger's analytic form of the theory. His greatest achievement, the exclusion principle, generally known today under his own name as the Pauli principle, that governs the quantum theory of all problems including more than one electron, preceded the basic work of Heisenberg and Schrodinger, and brought him the Nobel prize. It includes the mathematical treatment of the spin by means of the now so well known Pauli matrices. In 1929, in a paper with Heisenberg, he laid the foundation of quantum electrodynamics and, in doing so, to the whole theory of quantized wave fields which was to become the via regia of access to elementary particle physics, since here for the first time processes of generation and annihilation of particles could be described for the case of the photons
Writings on physics and philosophy by Wolfgang Pauli( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wolfgang Pauli was not only a Nobel laureate and one of the creators of modern physics, but also an eminent philosopher of modern science. In his essays he writes about space, time and causality, symmetry and the exclusion principle, but also about the role of the unconscious in modern science. His famous article on Kepler is included as well as essays on Bohr, Ehrenfest, Einstein, and Sommerfeld. This is the first book in English to include all articles on physics and philosophy."--Jacket

Wissenschaftlicher Briefwechsel mit Bohr, Einstein, Heisenberg u. a. by Wolfgang Pauli( Book )

40 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in German and English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aus Paulis letztem Lebensjahrzehnt sind über 2000 Briefe erhalten und in diesem grundlegenden Werk zur Physikgeschichte der Nachkriegszeit zusammengefaßt. Neben der Physik wird hier auch der allgemeinere geistesgeschichtliche Hintergrund unserer Naturwissenschaft beleuchtet. Dieser Teilband enthält wissenschaftliche Korrespondez über grundlegende und andere allgemeine Fragen der Physik der 50er Jahre: Elementarteilchen, Erkenntnistheorie und Quantenfeldtheorie. Im besonderen wird hier die Geschichte der frühen Quantenfeldtheorie beleuchtet. Die reich annotierten und kommentierten Briefe sind chronologisch angeordnet und durch Verzeichnisse und Register erschlossen. From the last decade of Paulis life, more than 2000 of his letters have survived. Together they represent a remarkable contribution to the history of post-war physics. In addition to discussing questions of physics they provide illuminating insights into debates on the philosophical and human components of the history of science. This part of Volume IV contains scientific correspondence on foundational and other general problems of physics in the 1950s: elementary particles, epistemology, and quantum field theory. In particular, one can clearly trace the development of the early quantum field theory. Generous annotations and commentary accompany the letters, which are ordered chronologically and listed in registers and an index for easy access
Pauli and the spin-statistics theorem by Ian Duck( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes broadly accessible an understandable proof of the infamous spin-statistics theorem. This widely known but little-understood theorem is intended to explain the fact that electrons obey the Pauli exclusion principle. This fact, in turn, explains the periodic table of the elements and their chemical properties. Therefore, this one simply stated fact is responsible for many of the principal features of our universe, from chemistry to solid state physics to nuclear physics to the life cycle of stars.In spite of its fundamental importance, it is only a slight exaggeration to say that

Physique moderne et philosophie by Wolfgang Pauli( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in French and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette étude nous introduit à certains des points cruciaux de la nouvelle physique et jette les ponts vers des disciplines apparemment étrangères, comme les antiques philosophies mystiques, la science de l'inconscient ou l'histoire de la philosophie, ouvrant ainsi d'immenses territoires de réflexion. Né en 1900 à Vienne, l'auteur reçut le prix Nobel en 1946
