Group theory and its application to the quantum mechanics of atomic spectra by Eugene Paul Wigner( Book )

66 editions published between 1909 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Group Theory: And Its Application To The Quantum Mechanics Of Atomic Spectra aims to describe the application of group theoretical methods to problems of quantum mechanics with specific reference to atomic spectra. <br>Chapters 1 to 3 discuss the elements of linear vector theory, while Chapters 4 to 6 deal more specifically with the rudiments of quantum mechanics itself. Chapters 7 to 16 discuss the abstract group theory, invariant subgroups, and the general theory of representations. These chapters are mathematical, although much of the material covered should be familiar from an elementary c

Nuclear structure by Leonard Eisenbud( Book )

25 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A clear and well-organized review of what is presently known about nuclear structure. Emphasis is less upon mathematical detail than upon the obtaining of a clear perspective which relates the various lines of approach to this complex and rapidly developing field. Particular attention is paid to nuclear models and to the several types of nuclear reactions.Originally published in 1958.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Aspects of quantum theory by P. A. M Dirac( Book )

22 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twelve articles in this volume discuss various aspects of quantum mechanics which owe their origin to the work fo P.A.M. Dirac. Each of the distinguished contributors reviews Dirac's work and discusses its development in some detail. Since Dirac's work ranged widely, the resulting volume constitutes a valable survey of the state of quantum mechanics. A small part of the book contains personal reminiscences of Dirac in Cambridge and of his early visits to the U.S.A. and gives a historical account of the development of quantum mechanics during the decade 1924-1933, termed the "golden age of theoretical physics."

Gruppentheorie und ihre Anwendung auf die Quantenmechanik der Atomspektren by Eugene Paul Wigner( Book )

40 editions published between 1931 and 1977 in German and English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch ist aus dem Wunsche entstanden, die An wendung gruppen theoretischer Methoden in der Quantenmechanik einem weiteren Leserkreis zugänglich zu machen. Die wirk liche Lösung der quantenmechanischen Differentialgleichungen stößt im allgemeinen auf so große Schwierigkeiten, daß man durch direkte Rechnung zumeist nur eine grobe Annäherung zu erreichen vermag. Um so erfreulicher ist es, daß ein so großer Teil der quantenmechanischen Resultate schon durch reine Symmetrieüberlegungen erhalten werden kann. Man hat gegen die gruppentheoi'etische Behandlung der Schrödingergleichung oft den Einwand erhoben, daß sie "nicht physikalisch" sei. Es scheint mir aber, daf$ die bewußte Aus nutzung elementarer Symmetrieeigenschaften dem physikalischen Gefühl eher entsprechen muß, als die mehr rechnerische Be handlung. Der erwähnte Einwand dürfte darauf zurückzuführen sein, daß die Gruppentheorie einen wesentlich anderen Charakter hat, als die dem Physiker hauptsächlich geläufigen Teile der Mathematik, so daß es immerhin einige Zeit erfordert, bis man sich mit ihr befreundet hat. Sie besteht nämlich aus einer großen Zahl unscheinbarer Schlüsse, die zwar einzeln betrachtet trivial, in ihrer Gesamtheit aber doch nicht so leicht zu über blicken sind. Deshalb hielt ich es schon im Interesse des ungeübten Lesers für ratsam, alle Zwischenüberlegungen nach Möglich keit explizite auszuführen. Um das richtige "sich zu Hause fühlen" im Gegenstand zu erleichtern, wurde vom mathema tischen Teil wesentlich mehr gebracht, als für die physikalischen VI Vorwort Anwendungen notwendig gewesen wäre. In den physikalischen Anwendungen wollte ich mich auf einen Gegenstand beschränken und habe als dit'sen die Theorie der Atomspektren gewählt

Philosophical reflections and syntheses by Eugene Paul Wigner( )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and German and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the founding fathers of modern quantum physics few have contributed to our basic understanding of its concepts as much as E.P. Wigner. His articles on the epistemology of quantum mechanics and the measurement problem, and the basic role of symmetries were of fundamental importance for all subsequent work. He was also the first to discuss the concept of consciousness from the point of view of modern physics. G.G. Emch edited most of those papers and wrote a very helpful introduction into Wigner's contributions to Natural Philosophy. The book should be a gem for all those interested in the history and philosophy of science. From a review by Silvan S. Schweber in Physics Today, October 1996: "All of the essays in Volume VI are at the level of the curious nonexpert who possesses a minimal command of the quantum mechanical formalism. They are rigorous, lucid and challenging."
