Nuclear Energy (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Eugene Wigner is one of the very few scientists that may be safely described as creators of 20th-century physics. Less well known to the public are his groundbreaking contributions to nuclear energy. In this book, Volume V of his Collected Works, A.M. Weinberg presents 42 reports and 12 of Wigner's many patents in nuclear engineering. For the first time Wigner's own account of his participation in early nuclear technology is published. This "Memoir" together with A.M. Weinberg's beautiful annotations will be of great interest to a general audience.
