Ettore Majorana’s Course on Theoretical Physics: A Recent Discovery

We analyze in some detail the course that Ettore Majorana gave on theoretical physics at the University of Naples between January and March 1938, just prior to his mysterious disappearance. We

Again on Majorana and the Thomas-Fermi model: a comment to physics/0511222

We comment on a recent paper announcing the discovery of a previously unknown publication of Ettore Majorana on the Thomas-Fermi atomic model. In pointing out that such a publication was not written

Il corso di Fisica teorica di Ettore Majorana: il ritrovamento del Documento Moreno

We analyze in some detail the course of Theoretical Physics held by Ettore Majorana at the University of Naples in 1938, just before his mysterious disappearance. In particular we give an account of

Preliminary notes for the inaugural lecture

In this first introductory lecture I will briefly discuss the aims of modern physics and the significance of its methods, with particular emphasis on their most unexpected and original aspects with

Following Weyl on Quantum Mechanics: The Contribution of Ettore Majorana

After a quick historical account of the introduction of the group-theoretical description of quantum mechanics in terms of symmetries, as proposed by Weyl, we examine some unpublished papers by

A peculiar lecture by Ettore Majorana

We give, for the first time, the English translation of a manuscript by Ettore Majorana, which probably corresponds to the text for a seminar lecture delivered at the University of Naples in 1938,

Colloquium : Ettore Majorana and the birth of autoionization

In some of the first applications of modern quantum mechanics to the spectroscopy of many-electron atoms, Ettore Majorana in 1931 solved several outstanding problems by developing the theory of

Una lezione particolare di Ettore Majorana

We give, for the first time, the critical complete text of a manuscript by Ettore Majorana, conserved in the same file of the lecture notes for his course on Theoretical Physics at the University of



Majorana solution of the Thomas–Fermi equation

We report on an original method, due to Majorana, that leads to a semi-analytical series solution of the Thomas–Fermi equation with appropriate boundary conditions in terms of only one quadrature. We

A theory for high-temperature superconductivity is developed based on a hydrodynamic approximation to the many-body problem using Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory to derive an expression for the transition temperature.
