This vintage book contains Wolfgang Pauli’s 1948 treatise, “Meson Theory of Nuclear Forces”. This fascinating exploration of a fundamental scientific theory will appeal to those with an interest in scientific development, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Various Types of Meson Fields”, “Pseudoscalar Symmetric Theory”, “Vector-Field Theory”, “Theory of Extended Source”, “Scattering of Mesons”, “Magnetic Moment in the Strong Coupling Case”, “Magnetic Moment in the Weak Coupling Case”, “Quantum Theory of Scattering”, et cetera. Wolfgang Ernst Pauli (1900–1958) was a Swiss theoretical physicist and one of the forefathers of quantum physics. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his "decisive contribution through his discovery of a new law of Nature, the exclusion principle or Pauli principle." Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
