Doubt and certainty : the celebrated academy : debates on science, mysticism, reality, in general on the knowable and unknowable,
with particular forays into such esoteric matters as the mind fluid, the behavior of the stock market, and the disposition
of a quantum mechanical sphinx, to name a few by
Tony Rothman(

"When physicists and others construct models to explain the phenomena and laws of nature, do those models actually simulate what's really out there in the world, or do they only synthesize the way we think the world is? And how does our cultural upbringing affect the way we think about the world? In this farreaching and penetrating book, two worldclass physicists, one born and raised in the West, the other in the Far East, examine these and many other intriguing questions not yet resolved by modern scientists."

From classical to quantum mechanics : an introduction to the formalism, foundations, and applications by
Giampiero Esposito(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook provides a pedagogical introduction to the formalism, foundations and applications of quantum mechanics. Part I covers the basic material which is necessary to understand the transition from classical to wave mechanics. Topics include classical dynamics, with emphasis on canonical transformations and the HamiltonJacobi equation, the Cauchy problem for the wave equation, Helmholtz equation and eikonal approximation, introduction to spin, perturbation theory and scattering theory. The Weyl quantisation is presented in Part II, along with the postulates of quantum mechanics. Part III is devoted to topics such as statistical mechanics and blackbody radiation, Lagrangian and phasespace formulations of quantum mechanics, and the Dirac equation. This book is intended for use as a textbook for beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate courses. It is selfcontained and includes problems to aid the reader's understanding

Pauli and the spinstatistics theorem by
Ian Duck(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book makes broadly accessible an understandable proof of the infamous spinstatistics theorem. This widely known but littleunderstood theorem is intended to explain the fact that electrons obey the Pauli exclusion principle. This fact, in turn, explains the periodic table of the elements and their chemical properties. Therefore, this one simply stated fact is responsible for many of the principal features of our universe, from chemistry to solid state physics to nuclear physics to the life cycle of stars.In spite of its fundamental importance, it is only a slight exaggeration to say that
