Magnetism and very low temperatures by H. B. G Casimir( Book )
37 editions published between 1940 and 1972 in English and Italian and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This concise and authoritative study by one of the world's great physicists has become a basic work in the literature of low temperature physics. Students of the subject and working scientists find it equally helpful, for it not only provides a survey of fundamental theoretical principles, but also points out promising lines of experimental investigation."--Page 4 of cover

Physics in the making : essays on developments in 20th century physics : in honour of H.B.G. Casimir on the occasion of his 80th birthday ( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
H.B.G. Casimir's life, interests and works are intertwined with the important developments that have taken place in physics during this century. This book was compiled by his friends and admirers in honour of his 80th birthday and concentrates mainly on Casimir's achievements in the field of physics, though without ignoring the peripheral areas of the history and philosophy of physics in which he was greatly interested. The book is divided into four parts. Part I describes Casimir's teachers, Ehrenfest, Bohr and Pauli, and will be of general interest due to the key role which these physicists played in modern developments. The articles do give new facts and provide new insights into the history of modern physics. Part II consists of essays on recent developments in various areas of physics in which Casimir has taken an active interest, such as the modern concept of time, statistical foundations of electrodynamic theory and field theory. The subjects covered in Part III have been selected because of Casimir's efforts in the industrial research area of physics. They cover past, present and future expectations in research. Part IV contains an essay which discusses a philosophy of physics currently under discussion, which states that phenomenological laws prevail over fundamental ones for the purpose of experimental and technical physics. A second chapter in this final part gives a critical analysis of this philosophical view. The book is concluded by an appendix discussing Casimir's activities as a lecturer, written by a former student

Haphazard reality half a century of science by H. B. G Casimir( Book )
17 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and Dutch and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Casimir, himself a famous physician, studied and worked with three great physicists of the twentieth century: Niels Bohr, Wolfgang Pauli and Paul Ehrenfest. In his autobiography, the brilliant theoretician lets the reader witness the revolution that led to quantum physics, whose influence on modern society turned out to be many times larger than the first atomic physicists could have imagined. Through his involvement in the technical-scientific and the business aspects of physics, through management positions at Philips Research Laboratory and as a member of the Board of Directors of Philips
