Secrets of the old one : Einstein, 1905 by Jeremy Bernstein( )

27 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Secrets of the Old One, Jeremy Bernstein sets out to make Albert Einstein's revolutionary contributions to modern physics comprehensible to general readers. Relying on nothing more advanced than high-school mathematics, he not only explains the science but evokes the scientific scene in which the young Einstein wrote his four revolutionary papers of 1905. Working very nearly alone and with apparently complete self-confidence, in spite of the skepticism or indifference of the physics establishment, the twenty-six-year-old Einstein managed to reveal hidden workings of "The Old One"--The name he sometimes used to refer to the deity. In the course of this one amazingly fruitful year, Bernstein shows us, he had set out the principles that would eventually turn the world of nineteenth-century physics on its head, and establish the course of physics for the twentieth century and beyond."--Jacket

A chorus of bells and other scientific inquiries by Jeremy Bernstein( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book of essays in four parts, was written over a decade and full of surprises for the breadth and variety of its subject matter. The first part is about the foundations of the quantum theory which reflects the author's many conversations with the late John Bell who persuaded him that there is still no satisfactory interpretation of the theory. The second part deals with nuclear weapons. One of the essays concerns the creation of the modern gas centrifuge which was done by German prisoners of war in the Soviet Union. The proliferation of these centrifuges was one of the issues in the spread of nuclear weapons. The third section deals with financial engineering with a profile of Louis Bachelier, the French mathematician who created it at the beginning of the 20th century. The final section deals with the Higgs boson and how it is used for generating mass. It includes a detailed article of how this mechanism works

These reports contain verbatim conversations among ten German atomic scientists before, during, and after the atomic bombing of Japan in August 1945 ... These secret reports from Farm Hall ... offer the world a unique insight into the mindset of the scientists on the other side ... and as they struggled to come to terms with their wartime work and to prepared for the postwar nuclear era in Germany"--Introduction
