Quantum Mechanics of One- and Two-Electron Atoms
One of the simplest, and most completely treated, fields of application of quantum mechanics is the theory of atoms with one or two electrons. For hydrogen and the analcgous ions He+, Li++, etc., the
Theory of Diffraction by Small Holes
The diffraction of electromagnetic radiation by a hole small compared with the wave-length is treated theoretically. A complete solution is found satisfying Maxwell's equations and the boundary
On the Stopping of Fast Particles and on the Creation of Positive Electrons
The stopping power of matter for fast particles is at present believed to be due to three different processes: (1) the ionization; (2) the nuclear scattering; (3) the emission of radiation under the
A Relativistic equation for bound state problems
The relativistic $S$-matrix formalism of Feynman is applied to the bound-state problem for two interacting Fermi-Dirac particles. The bound state is described by a wave function depending on separate
Statistical Theory of Superlattices
In a recent paper, Bragg and Williams have pointed out that the arrangement of the atoms in an alloy depends in a striking way on the temperature. At high temperatures, the atoms are distributed
Supernova mechanisms. [SN 1987a]
Supernovae of Type II occur at the end of the evolution of massive stars. The phenomenon begins when the iron core of the star exceeds a Chandrasekhar mass. The collapse of that core under gravity is
Theory of Atomic Collisions
The Theory of Atomic CollisionsBy N. F. Mott and H. S. W. Massey. (International Series of Monographs on Physics.) Second edition. Pp. xv + 388. (Oxford: Clarendon Press; London: Oxford University
On the Theory of Shock Waves for an Arbitrary Equation of State
The fundamental equations of the hydrodynamic theory of one-dimensional shock waves — that is, the equations of conservation of mass, of momentum, and of energy — are developed. These are used to
