FIRST EDITION, and in the very rare dust jacket, of Heisenberg's first book in English. In these collected lectures, Heisenberg discussed the significance of the uncertainty principle and other aspects of quantum mechanics. Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) was a German theoretical physicist and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics. He published his seminal paper "Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen" in 1925. In the subsequent series of papers with Max Born and Pascual Jordan, during the same year, this matrix formulation of quantum mechanics was substantially elaborated. He is known for the uncertainty principle, which he published in 1927. Heisenberg was awarded the 1932 Nobel Prize in Physics "for the creation of quantum mechanics." In early 1929, Heisenberg and Pauli submitted the first of two papers laying the foundation for relativistic quantum field theory. Also in 1929, Heisenberg went on a lecture tour through China, Japan, India, and the United States. In the spring of 1929, he was a visiting professor at the University of Chicago, where he gave lectures on quantum mechanics, which are summarized in this book. - Visit our website to see more images!
