A Physicist Remembers traces the effort to measure electron charge, spin, and momentum density on atoms and solids and to compare experiment with theory. Since the complexity of electron arrangements leads to subtle property changes in atoms, molecules and solids, theory and experiment have generally differed by about 1%. The Sagamore conferences have... more...
