Wissenschaftlicher Briefwechsel mit Bohr, Einstein, Heisenberg u.a. / Scientific Correspondence with Bohr, Einstein, Heisenberg a.o.: Band/Volume IV Teil/Part IV: 1957-1958
 
 

Mit dem Druck von Wolfgang Paulis Briefwechsel aus seinen letzten beiden Lebensjahren wird eine großangelegte Edition der gesamten wissenschaftlichen Korrespondenz eines der bedeutendsten theoretischen Physiker des 20. Jahrhunderts abgeschlossen, der an der Entwicklung der wichtigsten physikalischen Ideen und Theorien, insbesondere an der Relativitätstheorie und Quantentheorie sowie deren weiteren Ausbau zu einer Feld- und Elementarteilchentheorie, teilgenommen hat. Der vorliegende besonders umfangreiche Band mit 711 Briefen behandelt die durch Wu, Telegdi, Lederman u.a. bei den schwachen Wechselwirkungen beobachtete Paritätsverletzung, bei der das einst von Pauli postulierte Neutrino eine herausragende Rolle spielt und die in der Theorie der Elementarteilchen einen allgemeinen Umschwung einleitete. Neue Einblicke vermittelt der Briefwechsel in die enge Zusammenarbeit von Pauli und Heisenberg anlässlich einer damals entwickelten einheitlichen Feldtheorie der Elementarteilchen.

This volume of the letters Wolfgang Pauli wrote during the final two years of his life completes the publication of the entire scientific correspondence of one of the most important theoretical physicists of the 20th century. Pauli played a vital role in the development of the most important physical ideas and theories of his time: relativity and quantum mechanics, in particular, and also in their extension to elementary particle field theory. This especially extensive volume covers more than 700 letters between Pauli and scientists such as Wu, Telegdi, Lederman and others, in which he discussed parity violation observed under the weak interaction in which the neutrino (first postulated by Pauli) plays a crucial role. The letters also provide new insights into the close cooperation between Pauli and Heisenberg on their work on the unified field theory of elementary particles, which was being developed at that time.
