The philosophy of physics by Max Planck( Book )

8 editions published between 1936 and 1963 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Planck, the physicist who originated the quantum theory, turns in this volume to a definition of the philosophy of physics, analyzing the task of that science and scrutinizing its achievements in the light of its goals. He deals most exhaustively with a basic problem common to both physics and philosophy, the problem of causality in nature--not because he hopes to solve it at last, but because he feels he cannot avoid it: "Placed at birth in the middle of life, and in order to find our way through this live which is ours whether we want it or not, we try to introduce order into our experience." He discusses the characteristics of a "scientific" idea, its origin and effect, and in closing makes some extremely shrewd remarks on the familiar subject of science versus faith

Theoretical studies in basic radiation chemistry by M Vestal( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies were concerned with the problem of specifying the distribution of excited ions and molecules formed in gas phase radiation chemical systems. The principle emphasis was placed on developing and improving a satisfactory theory of the unimolecular reactions of excited polyatomic molecule-ions; establishing the validity of the theory by comparing calculated results with published experimental data; and extending the theory for application to radiation chemistry. Consideration was also given to the problem of specifying the electron energy distribution producing the excitation and ionization in an irradiated gas phase system. Theoretical results are presented for propane, n-butane, and iso-butane. (Author)
