100 Years of Planck's Quantum
This invaluable book goes from Planck's discovery of the quantum in 1900 to the most recent interpretations and applications of non-relativistic quantum mechanics.
This book is ideally suited to anyone with a junior-level background in modern physics and quantum mechanics, and cultural interest in the original sources of the greatest ideas of the greatest founders of this subject, as derived from papers about their first discovery. These papers have led, in giant strides across the whole of the twentieth century, to the revolutionary experimental advances of the last decade. The book makes accessible—physically and intellectually—both the deepest roots and the highest branches of non-relativistic quantum physics.
