New PDF release: A History of the Electron

By Jaume Navarro

landmarks within the historical past of physics are the invention of the particulate nature of cathode rays (the electron) by means of J. J. Thomson in 1897 and the experimental demonstration by way of his son G. P. Thomson in 1927 that the electron indicates the houses of a wave. jointly, the Thomsons are of the main major figures in sleek physics, either successful Nobel prizes for his or her paintings. This e-book offers the highbrow biographies of the father-and-son physicists, laying off new gentle on their mixed knowing of the character of electrons and, through extension, of the continual nature of topic. it's the first textual content to discover J. J. Thomson's early and later paintings, in addition to the function he performed in G. P. Thomson's schooling as a physicist and the way he reacted to his son's discovery of electron diffraction. This clean point of view will curiosity lecturers and graduate scholars operating within the background of early twentieth-century physics.
