in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Correspondence; diaries; manuscripts; lectures; reprints; financial and legal documents; testimonials; photographs; student notebooks; postcards. The collection is important primarily for its intellectual and social history. With the exception of the reprints, lectures, and college notes, there is little substantive scientific information. It is made up largely of correspondence (1872-1978) which is primarily social in content, and includes a significant quantity of family letters and history. Darrow's wide international circle of friends in both the arts and sciences reflect such events in the correspondence as the Depression, World War II, the influx of foreign scientists into the United States, the impact of the development of the atomic bomb within the physics community, the increasing participation of women in science, Presidential campaigns, and political developments in both the United States and Europe. There is a small series of professional correspondence from Darrow's office at Bell Laboratories (1955-1956) which deals mainly with his retirement and his work as Secretary of the American Physical Society. Correspondents include Raymond T. Birge, Niels Bohr, Léon Brillouin, Clinton Joseph Davisson, Arthur J. Dempster, Jesse W. Du Mond, Enrico Fermi, Ernest O. Lawrence, Leona Marshall, R.A. Millikan, George Mulfinger, Manuel Vallarta, John H. Van Vleck, and Ralph W. Wyckoff among many others. Testimonial letters from his retirement represent some of the most imporant names in the international scientific community. The biographical materials include family histories, wills, obituaries and some of Darrow's childhood writings. The diaries (1902-1972) contain accounts of travels, appointments and daily activities. There are copies of many of Darrow's lectures, including an annotated copy of his Lowell Lectures of 1935, manuscripts, and a complete set of reprints of his published articles. Darrow's college notes include those from his Freshman physics course with R.A. Millikan in 1908 at the University of Chicago. Random financial information includes tax forms, investment records, contracts and family estate settlement papers. Photographs include family and professional pictures. Among the correspondence are approximately 800 picture postcards (1917-1976) from the United States and around the world
Beam dynamics : a new attitude and framework by Etienne Forest( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, the author lays down the foundations of a theory of rings based on finite maps. The purpose and goals of the ring are discussed entirely in terms of the global properties of the one-turn map. Since 1987, the author and his associates have been proposing a theory of rings based on such maps. This work, the first introduction to this theoretical method, offers a modern and unique perspective on storage ring theory, which should be of interest to engineers and graduate and research level physicists in the international accelerator physics community, as well as to applied mathematicians. Interactive exercises for use with this book are available via the World Wide Web."--BOOK JACKET
Postcard by George Gamow( )

A. postcard S. (postmarked 1934 Aug. 7, Ann Arbor, Mich.) to Professor Ernest Lawrence, bearing Gamow's color-pencil drawing of a coat-of-arms design for the University of California Radiation Laboratory
The use of one- and two-dimensional hydro-dynamic machine calculations in high explosive research by Mark L Wilkins( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydrodynamic calculations in conjunction with experiments provide an effective method for obtaining otherwise inaccessible information on high explosives. The credibility of the calculational program (code) is established by comparison with the steady state solutions for certain detonation problems obtained by the method of characteristics. The machine calculation is then applied to specific problems in one and two dimensions to explain some of the difficulties an experimenter would encounter in attempting to measure the pressure at a detonation front
