Neutron physics for nuclear reactors : unpublished writings by Enrico Fermi( )

16 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique volume gives an accurate and very detailed description of the functioning and operation of basic nuclear reactors, as emerging from yet unpublished papers by Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi. In the first part, the entire course of lectures on Neutron Physics delivered by Fermi at Los Alamos is reported, according to the version made by Anthony P French. Here, the fundamental physical phenomena are described very clearly and comprehensively, giving the appropriate physics grounds for the functioning of nuclear piles. In the second part, all the patents issued by Fermi (and coworkers) on the functioning, construction and operation of several different kinds of nuclear reactors are reported. Here, the main engineering problems are encountered and solved by employing simple and practical methods, which are described in detail. This seminal work mainly caters to students, teachers and researchers working in nuclear physics and engineering, but it is of invaluable interest to historians of physics too, since the material presented here is entirely novel

Elementary particles by Enrico Fermi( Book )

70 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notebook C9, "Elementary Particles, Spring 1951," University of Chicago, unbound, 21 x 28 cm, 80 pp, contains notes for a course on elementary particles that is similar to the 1950 Silliman Lectures at Yale (Box 46, Folder 3) and to Fermi's Elementary particles book

Notes on quantum mechanics : a course given at the University of Chicago by Enrico Fermi( Book )

72 editions published between 1961 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These are the lecture notes as Fermi prepared them in his own hand the last time he gave the course in quantum mechanics at The University of Chicago in 1954. Fermi wrote them directly on hectrograph masters so that copies could be distributed to students who were following the lectures. They have been reproduced in facsimile in order to preserve in as personal a way as possible that unique quality of Fermi's for lecturing simply and clearly on the most essential aspects of a difficult but important subject."--Page 4 of cover

Fermi remembered by James W Cronin( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nobel laureate and scientific luminary Enrico Fermi (1901-1954) was a pioneering nuclear physicist whose contributions to the field were numerous, profound, and lasting. Best known for his involvement with the Manhattan Project and his work at Los Alamos that led to the first self-sustained nuclear reaction and ultimately to the production of electric power and plutonium for atomic weapons, Fermi and his legacy continue to color the character of the sciences at the University of Chicago. During his tenure as professor of physics at the Institute for Nuclear Studies, Fermi attracted an extraordinary scientific faculty and many talented students - ten Nobel Prizes were awarded to faculty or students under Fermi's tutelage."
