"The Golden Age of Theoretical Physics" brings together 37 selected essays. Many of these essays were first presented as lectures at various universities in Europe and the USA, and then published as reports or articles. Their enlarged, final versions were published in the joint work of Jagdish Mehra and Helmut Rechenberg, "The Historical Development of Quantum Theory," while the other essays were published as articles in scientific journals or in edited books. Here they are published together as a tribute to the MehraRechenberg collaboration sustained for several decades, and cover various aspects of quantum theory, the special and general theories of relativity, the foundations of statistical mechanics, and some of their fundamental applications. Two essays, 'Albert Einstein's "First" Paper' (Essay 1) and 'The Dream of Leonardo da Vinci' (Essay 37), lie outside the major themes treated in this book, but are included here because of their historical interest. The origin of each essay is explained in a footnote.This book deals with the most important themes developed in the first 40 years of the twentieth century by some of the greatest pioneers and architects of modern physics. It is a vital source of information about what can veritably be described as 'the golden age of theoretical physics'.Contents: "Volume 1: "Albert Einstein's 'First' PaperMax Planck and the Law of Blackbody RadiationPlanck's HalfQuanta: A History of the Concept of ZeroPoint EnergyJosiah Willard Gibbs and the Foundations of Statistical MechanicsEinstein and the Foundation of Statistical MechanicsAlbert Einstein and Marian von Smoluchowski: Early History of the Theory of Fluctuation PhenomenaThe Historical Origins of the Special Theory of RelativityThe Historical Origins of the General Theory of RelativityAlbert Einstein and the Origin of LightQuantum TheoryNiels Bohr and the Quantum Theory of the AtomArnold Sommerfeld and Atoms as Conditionally Periodic SystemsThe Gottingen Tradition of Mathematics and Physics from Gauss to Hilbert and Born and FranckThe Bohr Festival in Gottingen: Bohr's Wolfskehl Lectures and the Theory of the Periodic System of ElementsSatyendra Nath Bose, BoseEinstein Statistics, and the Quantum Theory of an Ideal GasLouis de Broglie and the Phase Waves Associated with MatterWolfgang Pauli and the Discovery of the Exclusion PrincipleThe Discovery of Electron SpinThe Discovery of the FermiDirac Statistics"Volume 2: "Werner Heisenberg and the Birth of Quantum Mechanics'The Golden Age of Theoretical Physics' PAM Dirac's Scientific Work from 1924 to 1933Erwin Schrodinger and the Rise of Wave Mechanics.
