Enrico Fermi, Physicist
Author Emilio Segre
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Pub. Date: August  1995
From the Publisher
                    Enrico Fermi (1901-54), discoverer of the Fermi statistics, author of the Fermi beta decay theory, and a leading force in the work that culminated
                    in the famous first controlled nuclear chain reaction at the University of Chicago on December 2, 1942, is regarded as one of the greatest
                    physicists of the twentieth century. Student, collaborator, and lifelong friend of Enrico Fermi, Emilio Segre presents a rich, well-rounded portrait of
                    the scientist, his methods, intellectual history, and achievements. Explaining in nontechnical terms the scientific problems Fermi faced or solved,
                    Enrico Fermi, Physicist contains illuminating material concerning Fermi's participation and contribution to the U.S. Atomic Energy project as well
                    as his return to university life. In 1938 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.

Enrico Fermi: And the Revolutions in Modern Physics
Dan Cooper  Enrico Fermi  Owen Gingerich (Editor)
Publisher: Oxford University Press, Incorporated
Pub. Date: November  1998
From the Publisher
                    A biography of the Nobel Prize-winning physicist whose work led to the discovery of nuclear fission, the basis of nuclear power and the atom

                    Gr 8 UpA balanced discussion of the scientists life and work. Coopers coverage of Fermis childhood and education, the political situation in Italy
                    that led him to immigrate to the United States in 1939, and his work on the atomic bomb are particularly informative. Full-page sidebars explain
                    principles related to the physicists research: Fermi-Dirac statistics, Heisenbergs matrix mechanics, and the production of new radioactive
                    elements by neutron bombardment. Captioned black-and-white photographs of Fermi, his family, and his colleagues add interest. This book will
                    be useful for reports, but the complexity of the principles of quantum and nuclear physics makes for challenging reading. The extensive list for
                    further reading includes biographies of Fermi, books on both scientific and political aspects of the atomic-bomb project, and information on tours
                    of laboratories involved in nuclear research today. Ted Gottfrieds Enrico Fermi (Facts On File, 1992; o.p.) covers much of the same

The Theory of Interacting Fermi Systems
Philippe Nozieres  David Pines (Editor)  D. Hone (Translator)
Publisher: Perseus Publishing
Pub. Date: October  1997
From the Publisher
                    A classic from 1964, this monograph, translated from the original French, provides a detailed exposition of field theoretical methods as applied to
                    zero-temperature Fermi liquids. The machinery of diagrammatic techniques is explained in detail, both for the ground state and for the Green's
                    functions (propagators) that describe elementary excitations. Special attention is paid to the concept of quasiparticles in normal Fermi liquids, in
                    continuity with those of the noninteracting gas. The phenomenological theory of Landau is justified from first principles. The extension of
                    perturbation methods to superfluid systems is discussed in the last chapter. The book emphasizes methods and concepts more than specific
                    applications: It is aimed at graduate students and at condensed matter physicists.

Notes on Quantum Mechanics: A Course Given by Enrico Fermi at the University of Chicago
Enrico Fermi  Robert A. Schluter
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Pub. Date: August  1995
Edition Desc: 2nd ed
From the Publisher
                    The lecture notes presented here in facsimile were prepared by Enrico Fermi for students of his course at the University of Chicago in 1954. They
                    are vivid examples of Fermi's unique ability to lecture simply and clearly on the most essential aspects of quantum mechanics. At the close of
                    each lecture, Fermi created a single problem for his students. These challenging exercises were not included in Fermi's notes but were preserved
                    in the notes of his students. This second edition includes a set of Fermi's assigned problems as compiled by a former student, Robert A.
From the Critics
                    From Booknews
                    Facsimiles of the handwritten notes Fermi prepared and handed out to the students of his 1954 course. The 1961 edition is here augmented with
                    the problems he set students at the end of each lecture, reconstructed by one of the students. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. Book
