100 years of Planck's Quantum by
Ian Duck(
)
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This invaluable book takes the reader from Planck's discovery of the quantum in 1900 to the most recent interpretations and applications of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. The introduction of the quantum idea leads off the prehistory of quantum mechanics, featuring Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Compton, and de Broglie's immortal contributions. Their original discovery papers are featured with explanatory notes and developments in Part 1. The invention of matrix mechanics and quantum mechanics by Heisenberg, Born, Jordan, Dirac, and Schrödinger is presented next, in Part 2. Following that, in Part 3

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(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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."

Pauli and the spinstatistics theorem by
Ian Duck(
Book
)
15 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 245 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 "everyone knows the spinstatistics theorem, but no one understands it". This book simplifies and clarifies the formal statements of the theorem, and also corrects the invariably flawed intuitive explanations which are frequently put forward. The book will be of interest to many practising physicists in all fields who have long been frustrated by the impenetrable discussions on the subject which have been available until now. It will also be accessible to students at an advanced undergraduate level as an introduction to modern physics based directly on the classical writings of the founders, including Pauli, Dirac, Heisenberg, Einstein and many others

Advanced concepts in quantum mechanics by
Giampiero Esposito(
Book
)
9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introducing a geometric view of fundamental physics, starting from quantum mechanics and its experimental foundations, this book is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in quantum mechanics and mathematical physics. Focusing on structural issues and geometric ideas, this book guides readers from the concepts of classical mechanics to those of quantum mechanics. The book features an original presentation of classical mechanics, with the choice of topics motivated by the subsequent development of quantum mechanics, especially wave equations, Poisson brackets and harmonic oscillators. It also presents new treatments of waves and particles and the symmetries in quantum mechanics, as well as extensive coverage of the experimental foundations
