Materie und Strahlung (Korpuskel und Feld)

Nature volume 140, page 386 (04 September 1937) | Download Citation



IN some respects, this is a remarkable little book. The preface warns the reader that it is more difficult to present a tolerable account of modern physics without mathematics than with them: furthermore, he must not expect easy going. The theme throughout is the ‘field’ and corpuscular aspects of matter, and, very properly, this leads up to a climax in the more recent attempts at a synthesis by Heisenberg, and by those concerned with electron waves.
