``Nuclear Physics'' deals with Bohr's work on nuclear physics which began in the pre-1932 days with his thinking deeply, but inconclusively about the seeming contradictions then presented by the evidence about the nucleus. In 1936, Bohr recognised and described the insights provided by neutron scattering experiments; the excitement of this new understanding and its extension and consolidation occupied much of the subsequent years. In 1939, he was again first in understanding the essential features of the newly discovered phenomenon of fission, applying successfully the point of view of nuclear reactions which he had developed over the past three years. Later, in 1949-50, he was impressed by the success of the nuclear shell model, which on the face of it seemed hard to reconcile with the picture of the closely interacting nucleons which he had pioneered in 1936. Bohr put much effort into clarifying this paradox

The leap of intuition that initiated quantum mechanics of the atom. The work of Planck and Einstein had shown that light comes out in discrete bundles of energy, so Bohr made the assumption that the orbits of the electron in the atom could have only certain energies and that the light emitted could have only the difference in energy when the electron fell from an outer to an inner orbit. Such a model is completely outside any possible classical physics, but it worked. The calculated energies of the light fit the spectral lines that were emitted

With a natural emphasis on his scientific contributions, this limited edition set documents all aspects of Bohr's life and work. Each of the twelve volumes is introduced and edited by a physicist or scholar with particular knowledge of the subject in question and as a bonus a supplementary index volume has now been prepared for the whole set. All volumes are illustrated with rare photos, and Bohr's publications are supplemented with carefully selected manuscripts and correspondence documenting the background for his work and his milieu. The Niels Bohr Collected Works constitute a unique resource for collectors and anyone interested in the history of science, and adds up to a fascinating story of the political dedication and social responsibility of one of the major scientists of the twentieth century. - Provides the only comprehensive reference on Niels Bohr's life and work including previously unpublished personal documents - Special limited edition, individually numbered sets for collectors and scientists - Presents an opportunity to purchase and/or access the content of all of the volumes with a newly added cumulative subject index volume - Published in agreement with and supported by the official Niels Bohr Archive in Denmark

Niels Bohr's philosophy of physics by Dugald Murdoch( Book )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives a clear and comprehensive exposition of Niels Bohr's philosophy of physics. Bohr's ideas are of major importance, for they are the source of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum physics; yet they are obscure, and call for the sort of close analysis that this book provides. The book describes the historical background of the physics from which Bohr's ideas grew. The core of the book is a detailed analysis of Bohr's arguments for complementarity and of the interpretation which he put upon it. Special emphasis is placed throughout on the contrasting views of Einstein, and the great debate between Bohr and Einstein is thoroughly examined. The book traces the philosophical influences on Bohr, and unravels the realist and anti-realist strands in his thinking. Bohr's philosophy is critically assessed in the light of recent developments in the foundations of quantum physics (the work of Bell and others) and in philosophy (the realism-anti-realism debate) and it is revealed as being much more subtle and sophisticated than it is generally taken to be. While the book will be of interest to specialists, it is written in a style that will make it accessible to those who have no specialist knowledge of the relevant physics and philosophy
