About this Item: Rome, Tipografia del Senato, 1930/1932, 1930. Couverture souple. Condition: Assez bon. 1ère Édition. EDITION ORIGINALE ---- 3 TIRES-A-PART brochés, in 8, (petit manque de papier à la partie sup. de la couv. du premier mémoire) --- RARE ----- "Fermi received the Nobel Prize in 1938. It is too early to give a historically valid assessment of Fermi's place in the history of physics. He was the only physicist in the twentieth century who excelled in both theory and experiment, and he was one of the most versatile. His greatest accomplishments are, chronologically, the statistics of particles obeying the exclusion principle, the application of these statistics to the Thomas-Fermi atom, the recasting of quantum electrodynamics, the theory of beta decay, the experimental study of artificial radioactivity produced by neutron bombardment and the connected discovery of slow neutrons and their phenomenology, the experimental realization of a nuclear chain reaction and the experimental study of pion-nucleon collision. In addition there are Fermi's innumerable, apparently isolated contributions to atomic, molecular, nuclear and particle physics, cosmic rays, relativity, etc, many of which initiated whole new chapters of physics". (DSB IV p. 584) ---- Norman N° 779, 780 & 781 : "The first of a series of five papers on nuclear physics in which Fermi investigated the theory of hyperfine structure of spectral lines (first proposed by Pauli in 1923) and the nuclear magnetic momenta, demonstrating that the nuclear magnetic moment was not of the order of magnitude of the Bohr magneton, as had been previously supposed, but was only 1/1000 of the magnitude of the Bohr magneton. The remaining papers continued the investigations of Fermi and his co-workers which culminated in Fermi's explanations of beta decay and the introduction of the Fermi constant" -- Honeyman N° 1294.

About this Item: Reale Accademia d'Italia, 1930; 1932., Rome:, 1930. 8vo. 12; 10; 22 pp. Figs. Original printed wrappers. FINE. Important group of Fermi papers that includes the key work Sui Momenti Magnetici dei Nuclei Atomici, which forms an important step in the development of the theory of nuclear magnetism. This was "the first of five papers on nuclear physics, in which Fermi investigated the theory of the hyperfine structure of spectral lines (first proposed by Pauli in 1923) and the nuclear magnetic momenta demonstrating that the nuclear magnetic moment was not of the order of magnitude of the Bohr magneton, as had been previously supposed, but was only 1/1000 of the magnitude of the Bohr magneton." Norman Library, no. 779. Fermi was awarded the Nobel Prize for physics in 1938, and later (while working on the Manhattan Project) led the team that built the first atomic pile. Gribbin, Q is for Quantum; DSB IV; Pais, Inward Bound; Norman Library, no. 779, 780, & 781. Seller Inventory # S7698
