About this Item

pp. 81-103. 8vo. Navy cloth, gilt stamped spine. Ex library Carnegie Institution of Washington Mount Wilson Observatory with call number gilt stamped on spine and library blind-stamp on front free end paper. Clean copy, handsomely bound; covers lightly freckled, else fine. RARE. FIRST EDITION. PROBABILITY OF A MANY-PARTICLE SYSTEM INTRODUCED. This paper deals with gas degeneracy and paramagnetism. In a footnote (note 1, p. 83), Pauli introduced for the first time the probability for a many-particle system with coordinates q1.,qf: "|((q1.,qf |.dq1.,dqf is the probability that, in the relevant quantum state of the system, the coordinates simultaneously lie in the relevant volume element of configuration space." Thus Pauli's paper is a contribution to the ongoing problem of the appropriate application of Bose-Einstein statistics or Fermi-Dirac statistics. In this paper Pauli wrote, "We shall take the point of view also advocated by Dirac, that the Fermi, and not the Einstein-Bose, statistics applies to the material gas," thus clearing up the matter. See Pais, Inward bound, p. 258; Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 432 and 285. The following articles by important contributors are included in volume 41: with: LAUE, Max von, (1879-1960) & Lise MEITNER, (1878-1968). "Die berechnung der reichweitestreuung aus Wilson-Aufnahmen." In: Zeitschrift fur physik, 41 (1927), pp. 397-406. In this paper Meitner and von Laue report their inconclusive efforts to test a theoretical formula of Bohr's that related statistical variations in range to the mechanism by which alpha particles lost energy to the atoms they encountered. Sime, Meitner, p. 113-114. Bookseller Inventory # S0464
