About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Problems of Atomic Dynamics: Two Series of Lectures on I. The Structure of the Atom,; II. The Lattice Theory of Rigid Bodies by Born, Max.

Description:

Book is very seldom seen in original hardcover, but here we have a very nice clean one with almost no faults of note. There are no names or writing and just light toning to pages and one tiny tear to top of last page which I have mended with almost invisible non-browning archival tape. Tightly bound with no cracks to hinges. Book is comprised of two sets of lectures given at MIT by the famous German-British physicist who went on to win the 1954 Nobel Prize for his research on quantum physics. Thirty lectures in all. 200 pages. Measures 6"x9". Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Cambridge: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1926., 1926. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. xiv, 1 leaf, 200 pp; 43 figs. Original cloth. Signature of former owner on front pastedown, else Near Fine. Max Born: Nobel Prize, Physics, 1954, 'for his fundamental research in quantum mechanics, especially for his statistical interpretation of the wavefunction.' 'In 1925-26, the late Max Born gave two sets of lectures at M.I.T., one on the structure of the atom, the other on the lattice theory of rigid bodies. Problems of Atomic Dynamics contains the text of both sets. What gives this volume its remarkable interest is just those dates: 1925-26. This must have been, by all accounts, the headiest period in twentieth-century physics, and Max Born was one of the leaders of the ferment. As Norbert Wiener remembers, 'When Professor Born came to the United States [for these lectures in 1925] he was enormously excited about the new basis Heisenberg had just given for the quantum theory of the atom.' These lectures represent perhaps the most vivid written record of the transition between the 'old' quantum theory of Bohr, and the 'new' theory. 'At the time I began this course of lectures,' Born writes, 'Heisenberg's first paper on the new quantum theory had just appeared. Here his masterly treatment gave the quantum theory an entirely new turn. The paper of Jordan and myself, in which we recognized the matrix calculus as the proper formulation of Heisenberg's ideas, was in press, and the manuscript of a third paper by the three of us was almost completed.' Even as the lecture series progressed, Born became familiar with new results, which he introduced into his presentation: Pauli's fourth quantum number, Dirac's formalism, his own work on a general operational calculus. And yet, in spite of the conditions of revolutionary changes in physics that year -- in which established ancien regime principles were collapsing almost monthly -- the theory is developed with a cool elegance and with a formal completeness which may be regarded as a 'limiting case' of its current state. These lectures represent the foundations of quantum theory, and they have withstood the tests of time -- the tests of more than forty years of experimental evidence' (M.I.T. Press Web site).
