Symmetry & modern physics : Yang Retirement Symposium : State University of New York, Stony Brook, 21-22 May 1999 by Alfred S Goldhaber( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C.N. Yang, one of the greatest physicists of the 20th Century, was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1957, jointly with T.D. Lee, for their investigation of the relationship (parity symmetry) between left- and right-handed states, leading to a discovery that astounded the world of physics - the nonconservation of parity by elementary particles and their reactions. With R.L. Mills, he created the concept of non-abelian gauge theories, the foundation of the modern description of elementary particles and forces. Professor Yang has worked on a wide range of subjects in physics, but his abiding interests have been symmetry principles, particle physics, and statistical mechanics. In 1999, a symposium was held at the State University of New York at Stony Brook to mark the retirement of C.N. Yang as Einstein Professor and Director of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, and to celebrate his many achievements. A noteworthy selection of the papers presented at the symposium appears in this invaluable volume in honor of Professor Yang

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Symposium on Frontiers of Science was held to celebrate the 80th birthday of Chen Ning Yang, one of the great physicists of the 20th century and arguably the most-admired living scientist in China today. Many of the world's great scientists - including 14 Nobel laureates, one Fields medallist and one Wolf Prize winner - converged on Beijing from all corners of the globe to pay tribute to Professor Yang. The symposium was organized by Tsinghua University, with which Professor Yang has had a lifelong relationship. In 1997, he helped to found the Center for Advanced Study at Tsinghua, was appointed to the university's faculty, and has since devoted his energy to the growth of the Center. This work is a collection of the presentations made at the symposium, covering a wide range of topics and mirroring Professor Yang's research and intellectual interests. It also includes talks given at the birthday banquet

Scientific Study : East vs. West( Visual )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chen Ning Yang The Westinghouse Science awards are something like Nobel prizes for teenagers; they recognize outstanding work in science by high-school students. In 1988, one New York City public school had eleven Westinghouse semifinalists; every one of them was of Asian background. Was it a fluke, as the principal said? Or do Asians bring something to the study of science which the rest of us had better learn to emulate? In this program with Bill Moyers, Physics Nobelist Dr. Chen Ning Yang discusses how the East and West approach scientific study and the understanding of scientific phenomena

From nuclei to stars : festschrift in honor of Gerald E. Brown by World Scientific (Firm)( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one way or another, Gerry Brown has been concerned with questions about the universe, about its vast expanse as well as about its most miniscule fundamental constituents of matter throughout his entire life. In his endeavours to understand the universe in many manifestations from nuclei all the way to the stars, he has been influenced by some of the most prominent physicists of the 20th century, and he himself, in turn, has influenced a great many scholars. This volume, a collection of articles dedicated to Gerry on his 85th birthday, contains discussions of many of the issues which have attracted his interest over the years. The contributions are written by his former students, co-authors, colleagues and admirers and they are strongly influenced by Gerry's own scientific tastes. With this compilation we want to express our respect, admiration and gratitude; we want to celebrate Gerry's scientific and scholarly achievements, the inspirational quality of his teaching and the enthusiasm which he himself displayed in his research and which stimulated so many of his students and colleagues over the decades
Proceedings of the Conference on 60 years of Yang-Mills gauge field theories : C.N. Yang's contributions to physics by Conference on 60 Years of Yang-Mills Gauge Field Theories( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the last six decades, Yang-Mills theory has increasingly become the cornerstone of theoretical physics. It is seemingly the only fully consistent relativistic quantum many-body theory in four space-time dimensions. As such it is the underlying theoretical framework for the Standard Model of Particle Physics, which has been shown to be the correct theory at the energies we now can measure. It has been investigated also from many other perspectives, and many new and unexpected features have been uncovered from this theory. In recent decades, apart from high energy physics, the theory has been actively applied in other branches of physics, such as statistical physics, condensed matter physics, nonlinear systems, etc. This makes the theory an indispensable topic for all who are involved in physics. The conference celebrated the exceptional achievements using Yang-Mills theory over the years but also many other truly remarkable contributions to different branches of physics from Prof C N Yang. This volume collects the invaluable talks by Prof C N Yang and the invited speakers reviewing these remarkable contributions and their importance for the future of physics"--
