  • This paper bridges a historiographical gap in accounts of the prediction and discovery of the positron by combining three ingredients. First, the prediction and discovery of the positron are situated in the broader context of a period of 'crystallisation' of a research tradition. Second, the prediction and discovery of the positron are discussed in the context of the 'authentication' of the particle. Third, the attitude of the relevant scientists to both prediction and discovery are… CONTINUE READING
