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 )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 75 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"

The beta-ray spectra of Cu⁶⁴ by C. S Wu ( )
4 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 22 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
Magnetohydrodynamic-hypersonic viscous and inviscid flow near the stagnation point of a blunt body by M. C Smith ( Book )
4 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An investigation is presented of the hypersonic viscous and inviscid flow past a spherical body which contains a magnetic dipole field aligned with the flow. Local-similarity solutions of the flow field are assumed near the stagnation point. The solution found differs from previous solutions in that the magnetic field is defined on the body rather than at the shock. The numerical results indicate that the critical values of the magnetic interaction parameter no longer appear as in previous works and that the shock displacement is much larger than formerly found for magnetic interaction parameters less than one. The latter result suggests that a magnetic field is a more useful device for controlling the hypersonic flow about a body than previously thought. (Author)

Portable alpha-activity measuring instrument by C. S Wu ( )
3 editions published between 1945 and 1948 in English and held by 12 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
