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 Naples. He probably refers to a seminar delivered in that University. Some passages reveal a physical interpretation of the Quantum Mechanics which anticipates of several years the Feynman approach in terms of path integrals, independently of the underlying mathematical formulation. 

Teaching theoretical physics: The cases of Enrico Fermi and Ettore Majorana

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

Four variations on Theoretical Physics by Ettore Majorana

An account is given of some topical unpublished work by Ettore Majorana, revealing his very deep intuitions and skilfulness in Theoretical Physics. The relevance of the quite unknown results obtained



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

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

Fermi, Majorana and the Statistical Model of Atoms

We give an account of the appearance and first developments of the statistical model of atoms proposed by Thomas and Fermi, focusing on the main results achieved by Fermi and his group in Rome.

Space-Time Approach to Non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics

Non-relativistic quantum mechanics is formulated here in a different way. It is, however, mathematically equivalent to the familiar formulation. In quantum mechanics the probability of an event which

Quantum theory of gravitation

It is possible to construct the non-euclidean geometry of space-time from the information carried by neutral particles. Points are identified with the quantal events in which photons or neutrinos are

The principle of least action in quantum mechanics

A generalization of quantum mechanics is given in which the central mathematical concept is the analogue of the action in classical mechanics. It is therefore applicable to mechanical systems whose

Teoria simmetrica dell’elettrone e del positrone

SuntoSi dimostra la possibilità di pervenire a una piena simmetrizzazione formale della teoria quantistica dell’elettrone e del positrone facendo uso di un nuovo processo di quantizzazione. Il
