I AM glad to have elicited this interesting communication from Dr. Bohr, and I readily admit that the more exact form of his equation given above is in close accordance with the observations of the lines in question. It will be seen that the equation now introduces a modified value for the Rydberg. series “constant,” 109675, in addition to its multiplication by 4 for the particular series under consideration. The constant 22779, which is deduced from the wavelengths of the lines is the…

Models and methodologies in current theoretical high-energy physics

A case study of the development of quantum field theory and of S-matrix theory, from their inceptions to the present, is presented and Lakatos' scheme provides a reasonable overall description and a plausible assessment of the relative value of these two programs in terms of progressive and degenerating problem shifts.

Resisting the Bohr Atom: The Early British Opposition

When Niels Bohr’s theory of atomic structure appeared in the summer and fall of 1913, it quickly attracted attention among British physicists. While some of the attention was supportive, others was

Falsification and the Methodology of Scientific Research Programmes

For centuries knowledge meant proven knowledge — proven either by the power of the intellect or by the evidence of the senses. Wisdom and intellectual integrity demanded that one must desist from

Falsifikation und die Methodologie wissenschaftlicher Forschungsprogramme

Jahrhundertelang verstand man unter Wissen bewiesenes Wissen — bewiesen entweder durch die Kraft der Vernunft oder durch die Evidenz der Sinne. Es galt als ein Gebot der Weisheit und der
