Life is strange( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While these are the stories of Jewish people who were displaced by the Second World War, the film concentrates on the vibrant cultural and family life they experienced in their youth that ultimately was most influential in their lives. It explores the connection between old age and childhood, asking questions about what remains of childhood in our later years, as well as engaging interesting issues of self-identity, Jewish identity, and the struggle to make any sense of the experience
Das Märchen vom Elfenbeinernen Turm : Reden und Aufsätze by Res Jost( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in German and English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses "Märchen" und die anderen hier gesammelten Vorträge richten sich bewußt an ein breites Publikum im Umkreis des "Elfenbeinernen Turmes": Studierende, Dozenten, Physiker, Mathematiker, Wissenschaftshistoriker, aber auch Bildungspolitiker. Personifiziert durch große Gestalten, wie Faraday, Gauss, Boltzmann, Planck und Einstein, werden entscheidende Einflüsse in der Geschichte und Gegenwart der modernen Naturwissenschaft dargestellt. Mit historischen, kulturellen und ethischen Aspekten seiner Wissenschaft hat sich der theoretische Physiker Res Jost (1918-1990) in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten seines Wirkens an der ETH Zürich ebenso intensiv auseinandergesetzt wie vorher etwa mit den mathematischen Grundlagen der Quantenfeldtheorie
Walter Kohn : personal stories and anecdotes told by friends and collaborators by M Scheffler( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a science book, nor even a book about science, although most of the contributors are scientists. It is a book of personal stories about Walter Kohn, a theoretical physicist and winner of half of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Walter Kohn originated and/or refined a number of very important theoretical approaches and concepts in solid-state physics. He is known in particular for Density-Functional Theory. This book represents a kind of "oral history" about him, gathered - in anticipation of his 80th birthday - from former students, collaborators, fellow-scientists, and friends

The collected works of Eugene Paul Wigner by Eugene Paul Wigner( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugene Wigner is one of the few giants of 20th-century physics. His early work helped to shape quantum mechanics, he laid the foundations of nuclear physics and nuclear engineering, and he contributed significantly to solid-state physics. His philosophical and political writings are widely known. All his works will be reprinted in Eugene Paul Wigner's Collected Workstogether with descriptive annotations by outstanding scientists. The present volume begins with a short biographical sketch followed by Wigner's papers on group theory, an extremely powerful tool he created for theoretical quantum physics. They are presented in two parts. The first, annotated by B. Judd, covers applications to atomic and molecular spectra, term structure, time reversal and spin. In the second, G. Mackey introduces to the reader the mathematical papers, many of which are outstanding contributions to the theory of unitary representations of groups, including the famous paper on the Lorentz group
