4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The First Nuclear Era is Alvin Weinberg's autobiography, the memoirs of a most influential American nuclear engineer/physicist. These reminiscences date from the dawning of the nuclear age in the early 1940s to the present. It is the story of one notable scientist's life and times and a look back at one of humankind's most ambitious endeavors: the attempt to harness and safely distribute nuclear power. Weinberg has witnessed and played a major part in many of the defining scientific moments of his era. Here he describes his academic career at the University of Chicago, under the tutelage of Nicolas Rashevsky and Carl Eckart. He recalls his wartime days at the Manhattan Project's Chicago Metallurgical Laboratory where he helped Nobelist Eugene Wigner design the Hanford plutonium producing reactors. He then focuses on what would become the abiding legacy of his professional life: his development of and involvement with nuclear reactors. In discussing both great commercial successes (such as the LightWater Reactor) and unsuccessful experiments, Weinberg offers an objective critique of the technical and political shortcomings that have haunted the nuclear age. He also demonstrates how the lessons learned from unsuccessful reactors paved the way for later triumphs

Nuclear energy by
Alvin Martin Weinberg(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eugene Wigner is one of the very few scientists that may safely be describedas creators of 20thcentury physics. This volume of his Collected Works is devoted to his contributions to nuclear energy. In his Introduction and Annotations A.M. Weinberg surveys Wigner's contributions to nuclearreaction physics and nuclear engineering, at the same time giving a glimpse of the early history of nuclearreactor technology. Wigner himself gave a lively and critical account, which is published in this volume for the first time. Furthermore the book contains fortytwo reports and memoranda from 1941 to 1945 and twelve of Wigner's many patents relating to nuclear energy

Pile neutron physics by
Alvin Martin Weinberg(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1948 and 1949 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is possible to write the Boltzmann equation as an integral equation whenever the scattering and the source are isotropic. To do this we return to equation 150 (report M3336) in which F(x, v, mu) is expressed as an integral over F sub o and S, the source distribution. Since we assume S is isotropic, we may put S(x, v, mu) = S sub o (x, v) /2: where S sub o is the total number of neutrons produced per cu cm per second. As it stands equation 150 is not quite an integral equation because the total F(x, v) appears outside, and both functions are unknown

Tscherne Unfallchirurgie(
)
1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unfallchirurgie im Kindesalter geht spezifisch auf die Versorgung von Verletzungen im Wachstum ein. Im Speziellen stellen die Autoren Wachstumsphänomene und spontane Korrekturmechanismen dar  abhängig vom Alter des Kindes zum Zeitpunkt des Unfalls. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf die operative Versorgung mit bewährten Zugängen und Osteosyntheseformen am wachsenden Skelett. Diese kann sich wesentlich von der Versorgung erwachsener Traumapatienten unterscheiden. Zusätzlich zeigen sie die chirurgische Versorgung polytraumatisierter Kinder sowie etwaiger Abdomen und Weichteilverletzungen. Das W
