Letters on wave mechanics: Schrödinger, Planck, Einstein, Lorentz by Karl Przibram( Book )

10 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lively collection of Einstein's groundbreaking scientific correspondence on modern physics with SchrOdinger, Planck, and Lorentz Imagine getting four of the greatest minds of modern physics in a room together to explain and debate the theories and innovations of their day. This is the fascinating experience of reading Letters on Wave Mechanics, the correspondence between Erwin SchrOdinger and Max Planck, H.A. Lorentz, and Albert Einstein. These remarkable letters illuminate not only the basis of SchrOdinger's work in wave mechanics, but also how great scientific minds debated and challenged the ever-changing theories of the day and ultimately embraced an elegant solution to the riddles of quantum theory. Their collected correspondence offers insight into both the personalities and professional aspirations that played a part in this theoretical breakthrough. This authorized Philosophical Library ebook features rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Versuch einer Theorie der electrischen und optischen Erscheinungen in bewegten Körpern by H. A Lorentz( Book )

31 editions published between 1895 and 2013 in German and English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dutch physicist Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1853-1928) was educated at the University of Leiden, where he later became a Professor of Theoretical Physics. A leading figure in his field, he established the basic mathematical principles that were later used by Albert Einstein for his theory of relativity. Lorentz and his colleague Pieter Zeeman won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1902 for their researches into the influence of magnetism upon radiation phenomena (the Zeeman effect). In 1905 Lorentz was also elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, which awarded him the Rumford and Copley Medals. Contributing to the discussion of the theory of a luminiferous ether - soon to be superseded by special relativity - this work, first published in 1895, looks at electromagnetic phenomena (the propagation of light) in relation to moving bodies and optics

The Einstein theory of relativity; a concise statement by H. A Lorentz( Book )

28 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it is true or not that not more than twelve persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this much-debated topic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book is published
