Principles of optics : electromagnetic theory of propagation, interference and diffraction of light by Max Born( Book )

252 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 4,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic text presents optics deductively as a system based on Maxwell's equations. It deals with those optical phenomena that can be described with the help of a continuous distribution of matter, and provides an overview of optics as a whole
Einstein's theory of relativity by Max Born( Book )

105 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Nobel Prize-winning physicist explains the historical background and scientific principles of Einstein's famous theory
Atomic physics by Max Born( Book )

196 editions published between 1935 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nobel Laureate's brilliant exposition of the kinetic theory of gases, elementary particles, the nuclear atom, wave-corpuscles, atomic structure and spectral lines, electron spin and Pauli's principle, quantum statistics, molecular structure and nuclear physics. Over 40 appendices, a bibliography, numerous figures and graphs
The restless universe by Max Born( Book )

55 editions published between 1935 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly readable introduction to modern physics was written by Nobel laureate Max Born. The book begins with an explanation of the kinetic theory of gases, providing a step-by-step development of general concepts of Newtonian mechanics and thermodynamics. Subsequent chapters discuss the structure of the atom and aspects of nuclear physics

Physics in my generation by Max Born( Book )

51 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in 4 languages and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THE idea of collecting these essays occurred to me when, in the leisure of retire ment, I scanned some of my own books and found that two of the more widely read show a startling change of attitude to some of the fundamental concepts of science. These are Einstein's Theory of Relativity of 1921 and the American edition of The Restless Universe of 1951. I have taken the introduction of as the former the first item of this collection, the postscript to the latter as its last. These books agree in the relativistic concept of space and time, but differ in many other funda mental notions. In 1921 I believed-and I shared this belief with most of my contemporary physicists-that science produced an objective knowledge of the world, which is governed by deterministic laws. The scientific method seemed to me superior to other, more subjective ways of forming a picture of the world philosophy, poetry, and religion; and I even thought the unambiguous language of science to be a step towards a better understanding between human beings. In 1951 I believed in none of these things. The border between object and subject had been blurred, deterministic laws had been replaced by statistical ones, and although physicists understood one another well enough across all national frontiers they had contributed nothing to a better understanding of nations, but had helped in inventing and applying the most horrible weapons of destruction
My life & my views by Max Born( Book )

11 editions published between 1968 and 1983 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Optik; ein Lehrbuch der elektromagnetischen Lichttheorie by Max Born( Book )

60 editions published between 1932 and 2015 in German and English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieses Buch unterscheidet sich von alteren Darstellungen der Optik durch die Grenzziehung gegen andere Gebiete der Physik. Die liberkommene Einteilung (Mechanik, Elektrizitat und Magnetismus, Optik, Thermodynamik, erganzt durch kinetische Theorie der Materie und Atomphysik) ist wohl vorlaufig flir den Unterricht noch unentbehrlich, so wenig sie auch der Einheit des Lehr­ gebaudes Rechnung tragt. Die Optik ist seit langem als elektromagnetische Lichttheorie ein Sonderkapitel der allgemeinen Lehre yom elektromagnetischen Felde. Man kann sich dabei natlirlich nicht auf das sichtbare Licht beschra

The Born-Einstein letters : friendship, politics, and physics in uncertain times : correspondence between Albert Einstein and Max and Hedwig Born from 1916 to 1955 with commentaries by Max Born by Albert Einstein( Book )

8 editions published between 1971 and 2005 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert Einstein and Max Born were giants of physics and great friends. Their letters span forty years and two world wars. In them they argue about quantum theory, agree about Beethoven's heavenly violin and piano duets (which they played together when they met) and chat about their families. Equally important, the men commiserate over the tragic plight of European Jewry and discuss what part they should play in the tumultuous politics of the time." "First published by Macmillan in 1971, The Born-Einstein Letters is fascinating historically. As the world celebrates the centenary of relativity theory, it is also highly topical: scientists continue to struggle with quantum physics, their role in wartime and the public's misunderstanding."--BOOK JACKET
