    Primary source materials for the history of quantum physics in the twentieth century, collected under the auspices of the American Philosophical Society and the American Physical Society, with a grant from the National Science Foundation.   A history of quantum mechanics that goes beyond the point in the s where most popular science books leave off. level best to cope with Author: Peter Galison.

      It's a fairly short history lesson, and often covered in texts describing the theory itself. You might be better off looking for a text giving an introduction to quantum theory, as the history of discovery is usually covered in the first chapter. Quantum mechanics (QM; also known as quantum physics, quantum theory, the wave mechanical model and matrix mechanics), including quantum field theory, is a fundamental theory in physics describing the properties of nature on an atomic scale.. Classical physics, the description of physics that existed before the formulation of the theory of relativity and of quantum mechanics, describes many.

      This book contains a complete translation of the original proceedings, with essays on the three main interpretations presented, and a detailed analysis of the lectures and discussions in the light of current research. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in physics and in the history and philosophy of quantum : pondered for years what a quantum theory might be. Wondering how to inte-grate it with the powerful apparatus of nineteenth-century physics, they also asked what relation it bore to existing, “classical” theories. For some the answers crystallized with quantum File Size: KB.

The Archive for the History of Quantum Physics (AHQP), consists of several hundred reels of microfilm copies of correspondence, unpublished manuscripts, research notebooks, and other primary source documents, as well as the transcripts (paper) of over one hundred taped interviews (oral histories) of physical scientists who revolutionized physics during the first decades of this century.

Physics is a branch of science whose primary objects of study are matter and eries of physics find applications throughout the natural sciences and in technology, since matter and energy are the basic constituents of the natural other domains of study—more limited in their scope—may be considered branches that have split off from physics to become sciences in their.
