8vo. Pages 714-732. [Entire volume: viii, 794 pp.] 2 figs. Navy cloth, gilt spine. Blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Mount Wilson Observatory. Fine. FIRST EDITION. This is Heisenberg's last paper on positron theory, using simplified field configurations. Heisenberg and Euler "inserted rigorous solutions of the Dirac equation in constant and parallel electric and magnetic fields . . . and thus obtained not only a and b but the more general non-linearity in L. . . . This paper with Euler . . . concludes with a recitation of difficulties: infinities occurring in the va... View more info

Two volumes. 8vo. Pages 209-231; 692. [Both volumes: viii, 835; viii, 830 pp.] Navy cloth, gilt spine. Blind-stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Mount Wilson Observatory. Fine. FIRST EDITION of Heisenberg's first paper on subtraction techniques. Heisenberg set aside the R-matrix and introduced Hamiltonian methods: 'One can also construct a Hamilton function in the usual way and carry out perturbations theory'. In making this step Heisenberg became the first to cast the Dirac-Maxwell formalism in the form we use today. In essence he took Eq. (16.4) for the interaction with radiati... View more info

FIRST EDITION of Heisenberg's first attempt to determine the high energy behavior of the Fermi interaction. "Heisenberg considered specifically the cross sections [omicron] for inelastic processes in which a high energy proton produces electrons, positrons, and neutrinos in the Coulomb field of a nucleus with charge Ze. . . . Heisenberg observed that the higher-order processes became more important than the lower-order ones at a ... View more info

FIRST EDITION. Heisenberg's S-Matrix. "Well before the troubles with meson theories had been fully appreciated, Heisenberg already had expressed serious reservations about the unlimited validity of quantum field theory. His doubts, dating from the thirties, were caused less by the difficulties of the positron theory than by his inability to construct a sensible field theory out of Fermi's [beta]-decay mod...
