A lively collection of Einstein's groundbreaking scientific correspondence on modern physics with Schrödinger, Planck, and LorentzImagine getting four of the greatest minds of modern physics in a room together to explain and debate the theories and innovations of their day. This is the fascinating experience of reading Letters on Wave Mechanics, the correspondence between Erwin Schrödinger and Max Planck, H.A. Lorentz, and Albert Einstein. These remarkable letters illuminate not only the basis of Schrödinger's work in wave mechanics, but also how great scientific minds debated and challenged

H. A Lorentz(
Book
)
31 editions published between 1895 and 2013 in German and English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Dutch physicist Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1853–1928) was educated at the University of Leiden, where he later became a Professor of Theoretical Physics. A leading figure in his field, he established the basic mathematical principles that were later used by Albert Einstein for his theory of relativity. Lorentz and his colleague Pieter Zeeman won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1902 for their researches into the influence of magnetism upon radiation phenomena (the Zeeman effect). In 1905 Lorentz was also elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, which awarded him the Rumford and Copley Medals. Contributing to the discussion of the theory of a luminiferous ether  soon to be superseded by special relativity  this work, first published in 1895, looks at electromagnetic phenomena (the propagation of light) in relation to moving bodies and optics

29 editions published between 1920 and 2013 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Whether it is true or not that not more than twelve persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this muchdebated topic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this farreaching theory available, the present book is published

Collected papers by

)
31 editions published between 1935 and 1939 in 6 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the present ninth volume we bring to a conclusion the edition of the Collected Papers of Professor H.A. Lorentz. It contains the evidence of his constant activity to promote the interest in science of a larger public, in particular of his country men, by addresses on se veraloccasions, by articles in magazines and newspapers, and other wise. In a certain way in this part of his work he belongs more partic ularly to his country, therefore we reproduce it in the original lang uage, with the exception of his inaugural address as Leiden professor early in I878, which readers abroad might be interested in. The sketch of Ludwig Boltzmann, in the German language, contains a most powerful and deepgoing survey of the scientific work of this genius. In several places the character of the man's personality rather than that 0/ the scientist reveals itself, his attitude towards various problems and his personal views. In his first address he refers to the value of mathematics, we hear his dislike lor too vivid visual speculations and crude hypotheses, his taste lor the soberness of mathematical formulae, where he argues that the fundamental principles must needs escape further explanation. On page 54 we read what he said about determin ism, and on page I8I he expresses himself on the relation of matter and mind. His intimate feelings on space and time, and the aether, are touched upon on pages 240, 26I, 274
