The Aharonov-Bohm effect by M Peshkin( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

30 years ago, the Aharonov-Bohm effect was predicted for the first time; since then, this quantum phenomenon which so grossly irritates a physical intuition trained in Maxwellian electrodynamics, has been discussed and studied both experimentally and theoretically. A thorough understanding of the Aharonov-Bohm effect has substantial bearing on the foundations and interpretation of quantum mechanics, on the understanding of gauge theories and on the role of topological methods in mathematical physics. In the meantime, decisive precision measurements have experimentally confirmed the predictions of Aharonov and Bohm. In Part One of this book M. Peshkin outlines the theoretical ideas that are actually tested in the experiments described by A. Tonomura in Part Two. Both authors give a complete and pedagogically well written description of the Aharonov-Bohm effect and its measurement. The book is accessible to everybody interested in quantum mechanics and its foundations, in particular to students. The presentation also reviews the historical developments in some detail

On the theory of the polarization of nucleons by deuterons by Kenneth Smith( )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In anticipation of the availability of the phase-shifts and mixing parameters, which are being calculated by Bransden, Smith, and Tate for the elastic scattering of nucleons by deuterons (with tensor forces), the von Neuman density matrix and Racah algebra were used to derive expressions for the average value of the spin operator in the emerging beam of nucleons after single and double scattering from un-polarized deuterons. The values of the geometrical factors which appear in these expressions were calculated on an IBM-650 digital computing machine and are given in the form of tables. The range of the angular momentum quantum numbers was chosen to cover nucleon-nucleon and nucleon-deuteron problems up to J, the total angular momentum, equal to five

Physics Division annual review : 1 April 1978-31 March 1979 by M Peshkin( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A broad review is presented of work in the areas of nuclear physics research (the superconducting linac; medium-energy physics; heavy-ion research at the tandem and superconducting linac accelerators - resonant structures in heavy-ion reactions, fusion cross sections, high-angular-momentum-states in nuclei; charged-particle research; accelerator operations and development; neutron and photonuclear physics; theoretical physics - heavy-ion direct reactions, nuclear shell theory and nuclear structure, nuclear matter, intermediate-energy physics, dense nuclear matter and classical calculations of the high-energy collisions of heavy ions; radiative transitions and nuclear resonance reactions experimental atomic and molecular physics research (dissociation and other interactions of energetic molecular ions in solid and gaseous targets, beam-foil research and collision dynamics of heavy ions, photoionization-photon-electron research, spectroscopy of free atoms, Moessbauer effect research, monochromatic x-ray beam project); and applied physics (interaction of energetic particles with solids scanning secondary-ion microprobe). Most of the reports are quite brief (about a page); 24 pages of references are included. 21 items with significant amounts of information are abstracted individually
A memoir of Los Alamos in World War II by M Peshkin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"As an undergraduate physics student turned soldier, Dr. Peshkin was lucky to be sent to Los Alamos, where he worked most of the time as Richard Feynman's personal computer. In this colloquium, he describes some aspects of the project and its aftermath and their context in the country at that time, all as illustrated by the limited experience of one then-very-young scientist."--NIST Public Affairs Office
