Quantum mechanics; new approaches to selected topics by
Harry J Lipkin(
Book
)
44 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Acclaimed as excellent (Nature) and very original and refreshing (Physics Today), this collection of selfcontained studies is geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Its broad selection of topics includes the Mössbauer effect, manybody quantum mechanics, scattering theory, Feynman diagrams, and relativistic quantum mechanics. Author Harry J. Lipkin, a wellknown teacher at Israel's Weizmann Institute, takes an unusual approach by introducing many interesting physical problems and mathematical techniques at a much earlier point than in conventional texts. This method enables students to observe the physical implications and useful applications of quantum theory before mastering the formalism in detail, and it provides them with new mathematical tools at an earlier stage for use in subsequent problems

Andrei Sakharov : quarks and the structure of matter by
Harry J Lipkin(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1980, the Cold War was in full bloom. The Soviet father of the hydrogen bomb and Nobel Peace Laureate turned dissident physicist, Andrei Sakharov, had been exiled to Gorki by the Soviet authorities. Called "senile" and under heavy Soviet censorship, Sakharov had a hard time communicating his latest scientific results to readers outside of Gorki. Some smuggled results reached the author, Harry Lipkin, who then realized that he and Sakharov were both pioneers in a new revolution on our understanding the structure of matter. The particle physics community had resisted their revelation that the

Unitary symmetry for pedestrians : (or, Ispin, Uspin, Vall spin for Ispin) by
Harry J Lipkin(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unitary symmetry of elementary particles is described in a simple way requiring no knowledge of group theory. The basic approach is that of Levinson, Lipkin, and Meshkov, and uses SU₂ subgroups of the grou SU₃. Unitary symmetry appears as a generalization of Ispin symmetry, in which three "spins" are defined in a symmetrical way and are all required simultaneously to be conserved. One of the three spins is Ispin; the other two, called U spin and V spin, define certain transformations between particles of different strangeness. Experimental consequences of the conservation of all three spins are calculated with convention angular momentum algebra. The breaking of unitary symmetry by electromagnetic interactions and by the strong interactions producing mass splitting leads to consequences which are easily calculated with the use of the three spins and angular momentum algebra

The scattering of positrons and electrons by nuclei by
Harry J Lipkin(
Book
)
2 editions published between 1950 and 1951 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The scattering at 57.9 deg of one million volt electrons and positrons by thin foils has been investigated experimentally from two points of view: (1) to compare the cross section for elastic nuclear scattering of positrons with that of electrons, and (2) to look for inelastically scattered electrons which have suffered large energy losses. The first is of interest because theory predicts a large difference between positron and electron nuclear scattering resulting from spin orbit coupling. The second is of interest because there have been many experimental reports of such inelastic scattering but no satisfactory theoretical reason for the effect. Values were obtained for the ratio of the electron scattering cross section to that of positrons at three different energies in the one million volt region for foils of platinum and copper. The results were in rough agreement with theoretical predictions, with a consistent deviation which may be attributed to the failure of the theory to include the effects of screening. The investigation of inelastic scattering failed to observe any effect in foils of aluminum, copper, platinum and lead. (Author)
