The origin of the third family : in honour of A. Zichichi on the XXX anniversary of the proposal to search for the Third Lepton at Adone ( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume has two main components: reports and testimonies. Both will allow the reader to know how this new field of physics was opened, how it gave rise to new technological developments (now still of great value for electron and muon detection), and how much work was needed for the "peculiar symmetry" to be so "short-lived."

Magnetohydrodynamic-hypersonic viscous and inviscid flow near the stagnation point of a blunt body by M. C Smith( Book )
3 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The equations governing the hypersonic flow about a magnetized body are solved numerically. The solutions obtained illustrate the effects of Reynolds number and magnetic parameter on the structure of the applied magnetic field. The results show that, for magnetic parameters larger than a critical value, numerical solutions do not exist. A critical magnetic parameter is considered to result from an assumption of a given magnetic field at the shock. By increasing the conductivity, and thereby the induced magnetic field, the applied field at the shock disappears. This in turn violates the basic assumption of a finite field at the shock. It is concluded that the applied magnetic field can be defined only at the body where it is a natural characteristic of the problem. (Author)

The beta-ray spectra of Cu⁶⁴ by C. S Wu( )
2 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Positron and negatron spectra of Cu(64) have been investigated in the Columbia solenoid beta-ray spectrometer. By using thinner and more uniform sources and employing a more rigorous Coulomb correction factor, the deviations at the low energy region were greatly reduced as compared with previous work reported from other laboratories. It seems probable that the remaining small observed deviation is instrumental and the Cu(64) spectra are actually of the allowed type

Portable alpha-activity measuring instrument by C. S Wu( )
2 editions published in 1948 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A portable sensitive alpha-particle detector has been developed for scanning and surveying small amounts of U-metal on various surfaces. Although there are various possible ways of detecting alpha particles, for the sake of simplicity and serviceability, the method using an ionization chamber in connection with a portable electrometer circuit is employed. Units built in this laboratory have proven very satisfactory. The high sensitivity that has been achieved with these instruments approximates counter sensitivities
