The Principles of Quantum Mechanics

Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1930. First Edition. Octavo. Item #028940

257 pages. The author was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1933 along with Schrödinger. In one of the classics of quantum mechanics ('On the theory of quantum mechanics') Dirac in August 1926 incorporated Erwin Schrödinger's new wave mechanics into his own theory and thereby created a more general and powerful formalism which he immediately applied to develop what subsequently became known as Fermi-Dirac quantum statistic. In Cormac McCarthy's The Passenger, at midpoint, there is a serious discussion of Dirac and other key physicists such as Feynman. Contains a small photograph laid in of several physicists or students of physicist of which one is Paul Dirac. A very good copy of a scarce book.

Price: $2,150.00
