  • In the great revolution in fundamental physics which started with the ideas of Planck and culminated in the impressive breakthrough of the mid nineteentwenties, and in the completed framework of quantum mechanics, Heisenberg made many important contributions. Among these, two, the basic treatment of quantum transitions and the formulation of the uncertainty principle, were so original and impressive that they came close to the popular image, so often unrealistic, of great new concepts growing… CONTINUE READING
