Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas papers by Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas Papers include research and lecture notes, class notes, personal papers, research papers (published and unpublished), some correspondence, documentation of consulting work, drafts of supervised student theses and dissertations, course outlines, examinations, memoranda, laboratory notes, symposiums, and miscellaneous papers. The bulk of this collection documents Thomas' academic teaching career, consisting of holograph and typed notes, most undated, on research for Thomas' physics lectures at Columbia University, Ohio State University, and North Carolina State University; also his student notes (2 boxes), taken at Cambridge University (England) physics lectures, 1921-1925, given by Bromwich, Eddington, Fowler, Littlewood, Pollard, and Ramsay, among others; published work (research published in journals), 1929-1982 (1 box); consulting for IBM and Timken Steel and Tube Company; symposiums, 1980-1985 (3 folders); personal papers (1 folder): professional diplomas and certificates as well as Lewis/Thomas family genealogy; and biographical information (1 folder). Topics: atomic physics, computer capacity, difference equations, electrodynamics, electron scattering, electronic structure of atoms and molecules, Fourier analysis, general dynamics, group theory, hydrodynamics, mathematics, physics, plasma (physics) quantum electrodynamics, quantum theory, quantum mechanics, relativity field theory, statistical mechanics, theoretical phy sics, among others. Correspondents: G. Bessis, Biedenharn, Dahl, Eichelberger, Grosch, Andrew Kollchoubey, Rolf Landauer, Lief, Robert Newton, among others
Oral history interview with Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas by Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas( )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This interview was conducted as part of the Archives for the History of Quantum Physics project, which includes tapes and transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with circa 100 atomic and quantum physicists. Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s. Also prominently mentioned are: Niels Henrik David Bohr, David Mathias Dennison, Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, Arthur Stanley Eddington, Enrico Fermi, Ralph Fowler, Samuel Abraham Goudsmit, Douglas Rayner Hartree, Werner Heisenberg, Hendrik Anthony Kramers, Joseph Larmor, Wolfgang Pauli, William Grosvenor Pollard, Arnold Sommerfeld, George Eugène Uhlenbeck; University of Cambridge, and Trinity Mathematical Society

Talks (and speakers) include: "Did Minkowski Change his Mind about Noneuclidean Symmetry in Special Relativity?" (Felix T. Smith); "Ettore Majorana and the birth of autoionization" (Ennio Arimondo, Charles W. Clark , William C. Martin); "Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas: An appraisal of an under-appreciated polymath" (John David Jackson); "The Washington Conference on Theoretical Physics: Bringing the Spirit of Copenhagen to Foggy Bottom" (Paul Halpern); "Bullion to B-fields: The Silver Program of the Manhattan Project" (Cameron Reed); "What I have learned in reading and writing history of physics" (Harry Lustig); "Twist 'til we tear the house down: How Clifford solved the universe in 1870" (James Beichler); "A Historical View of Kirchhoff's Black Body Universal Distribution Function K (lambda)" (Clarence A. Gall); and "History of the 3 Theories of Light" (Jeffrey Boyd). Topics discussed include symmetry, Ettore Majorana, ionization, Llewellyn Hilleth Thomas, theoretical physics, Mahattan Project use of silver, William K. Clifford, Gustav Kirchhoff, distribution, and theories of light
