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 the recently retrieved "Moreno Paper", where the lecture notes are reported. Six of these lectures are not present in the collection of the original manuscripts deposited at the Domus Galilaeana in Pisa, consisting of only ten lectures.

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

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,

The disappearance of Ettore Majorana: an analytic examination

The many recent researches into the mysterious disappearance of Ettore Majorana, one of the greatest minds of theoretical physics in the twentieth century, are summarised and discussed in some

We report on theoretical courses by Enrico Fermi and Ettore Majorana, which give evidence of the first appearance and further development of quantum mechanics teaching in Italy. On the basis of
