Can quantummechanical description of physical reality be considered complete? by Albert Einstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1935 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a complete theory there is an element corresponding to each element of reality. A sufficient condition for the reality of a physical quantity is the possibility of predicting it with certainty, without disturbing the system. In quantum mechanics in the case of two physical quantities described by non-commuting operators, the knowledge of one precludes the knowledge of the other. Then either (1) the description of reality given by the wave function in quantum mechanics is not complete or (2) these two quantities cannot have simultaneous reality. Consideration of the problem of making predictions concerning a system on the basis of measurements made on another system that had previously interacted with it leads to the result that if (1) is false then (2) is also false. One is thus led to conclude that the description of reality as given by a wave function is not complete". (From Physical Review)
The dispersion by hydrogen-like atoms in wave mechanics by Boris Podolsky( Book )

1 edition published in 1928 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In view of the recent experimental determination of the dispersion by atomic hydrogen it seems interesting to apply the theory of dispersion developed by Schrodinger to this case. In this paper we restrict ourselves to an approximation in which terms of the order of relativistic correction are neglected. For this purpose it is simpler to obtain our wave equation by the operational method of Schrodinger and Eckart, as extended by Epstein, for in this way we immediately obtain an equation free of relativistic terms. In what follows, in order to preserve a continuity of the discussion, details of calculations are omitted from the main text and are given as Supplementary Notes at the end of the paper.

John B. Hart Conference on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics Collection by John B Hart( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Collection documents the Conference on the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, which the Xavier University Department of Physics hosted from October 1-5, 1962. The conference, jointly sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Office of Naval Research, and the Judge Robert S. Marx Foundation, was chaired by physics professor Boris Podolsky. John B. Hart served as conference manager. The principal participants were six eminent physicists, including two Nobel Prize winners, who were joined by sixteen other specially invited physicists from around the world. The collection contains conference planning documentation, grant materials, financial records, correspondence, reports, publicity, and photographs. It includes sound recordings of public lectures and transcripts of the conference proceedings. The collection also includes a small amount of papers and lectures on other physics-related topics

A fundamental theoretical and experimental study of rotary magnetohydrodynamics( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A combined theoretical and experimental investigation of the magnetohydrodynamics of a magnetically driven vortex, including both a closed cycle (homopolar) and open cycle (helical) configuration, constructed in this laboratory, was made. The theory of the magnetohydrodynamics of the homopolar device for the general case of an incompressible conducting fluid is presented, and the resulting system of equations simplified appreciably. Detailed discussions of the two special cases of very high and very low conductivity are given. The cases of a homopolar device with a compressible fluid, and a helical device with an incompressible fluid are likewise discussed in a preliminary manner. A detailed experimental study of the homopolar device, including exhaustive measurements of the static pressure, azimuthal and radial velocities, boundary layer behavior, and the effect of a changing electrode radius was made. The experimental work concerned with the helical device was preliminary, and was limited to measurements of the net outflow velocity. (Author)
