Histories of the electron : the birth of microphysics by Jed Z Buchwald( )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is organized into four parts. The first part, Corpuscles and electrons, considers the varying accounts of Thomson's role in experimental production of the electron. The second part, What was the newborn electron good for?, examines how scientists used the new entity in physical and chemical investigations. The third part, Electrons applied and appropriate, explores the accommodation, or lack of thereof, of the electron in nuclear physics, chemistry and electrical science. It follows the electron's gradual progress from the cathode ray to ubiquitous subatomic particle and eponymous entity in one of the world's most successful industries - electonics. The fourth part, Philosophical electrons, considers the role of the electron in issues of instrumentalism, epistemology and realism - blurb
Masters of theory : Cambridge and the rise of mathematical physics by Andrew Warwick( )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Isaac Newton published the Principia three centuries ago, only a few scholars were capable of understanding his conceptually demanding work. Yet this esoteric knowledge quickly became accessible in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries when Britain produced many leading mathematical physicists. In this book, Andrew Warwick shows how the education of these "masters of theory" led them to transform our understanding of everything from the flight of a boomerang to the structure of the universe. --
