  • REICHENBACH, Hans
    THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY AND A PRIORI KNOWLEDGE.Translated and edited, with an introduction by Maria Reichenbach

    Edition: First edition in English

    Berkeley: Universty of California Pres, 1965. Khaki cloth. pp (xlvi), 116. Fine copy. Price-clipped jacket has slight rubbing, two short tears, VG otherwise. "This book represents and important milestone in the history of philsophy and the history of science. First published in Berlin in 1920 (Relativtatstheorie und Erkinndtnis apriori) and dedicated to Einstein, the book aims to show the irreconcilability of the theory of relativity with Kant's critical philosophy, and to show further how Einstein's work has influenced the philosophy of science." - jacket. ; Octavo

    Unification of Fundamental Forces: The First 1988 Dirac Memorial Lecture

    Cambridge University Press, 1990. Blue cloth, 143 pp. Fine in fine jacket. "This is an expanded version of the third Dirac Memorial Lecture, given in 1988 by the Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam. Salams lecture presents an overview of the developments in modern particle physics from its inception at the turn of the century to the present theories seeking to unify all the fundamental forces. In addition, two previously unpublished lectures by Paul Dirac, and Werner Heisenberg are included. These lectures provide a fascinating insight into their approach to research and the developments in particle physics at that time. Nonspecialists, undergraduates and researchers will find this a fascinating book. It contains a clear introduction to the major themes of particle…

To this end a somewhat new treatment has been adopted. A well-illustrated chapter on X-ray spectographs increases the value of the work." - jacket. Maurice de Broglie was the elder brother of Louis de Broglie. They sometimes collaborated and co-authored a paper in 1921. Louis built on their shared research, but he was a theoretical physicist whereas Maurice was an experimental physicist. Louis was the first to postulate the wave-partical duality of matter, in 1924, and he won a Nobel Prize in 1929. Maurice did important work on in the study of X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy (he invented X-ray spectroscopy). In 1942 he assumed the Chair of Physics in the Collège de France and was elected to the Royal Society in London in 1940, having received their Hughes Medal in 1928 for his work on X-ray spectra. A superior copy of an important physics book.
