Abstract:

Student work with Arnold Sommerfeld, Wolfgang Pauli, Werner Heisenberg; first paper with Heisenberg; paper on Hall Effect; history of early contributions to the electron theory of metals; extrapolation of second Hall paper by Léon Brillouin to three-dimensional case; errors in Pauli's work on anharmonic terms; Peter Debye's error; paper on free electrons. History of and contributions to theory of semiconductors: Felix Bloch, Yakov Ilyich Frenkel, Ralph H. Fowler, Nevill Mott; Max Born on non-linear electrodynamics; paper with Lev Landau on quantum electrodynamics; Walter Schottky. Search for superconductivity during 1930s. Knowledge of solid state physics in Germany and England beginning 1928; effects of World War II on development of solid state physics. Also prominently mentioned are: S. Chandrasekhar, Arthur Stanley Eddington; University of Cambridge.
