Item description for Hans Bethe And His Physics by G. E. Brown, Gerald E. Brown & Chang-Hwan Lee...

When Hans Bethe, at the age of 97, asked his long-term collaborator, Gerry Brown, to explain his scientific work to the world, the latter knew that this was a steep task. As the late John Bahcall famously remarked: If you know his (Bethe's) work, you might be inclined to think he is really several people, all of whom are engaged in a conspiracy to sign their work with the same name . Almost eight decades of original research, hundreds of scientific papers, numerous books, countless reports spanning the key areas of 20th century physics are the impressive record of Hans Bethe s academic work. In answering Bethe's request, the editors enlisted the help of experts in the different research fields, collaborators and friends of this last giant of 20th century physics. Hans Bethe and His Physics is the result. It contains discussions of Hans Bethe's work in solid state physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics; it explains his contributions as a science advisor and his stance on energy and nuclear weapons; and it demonstrates his impact as a teacher and mentor to generations of young scientists. While the book's primary aim is to explain the science behind the man, the different articles also allow the reader to take a glimpse at the man behind the science.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hans Bethe And His Physics?

One of the Great Physicists of our Time  May 14, 2007
Hans Bethe was one of the greatest physicists of the last 100 years. This book, with its many different sections, each writen by a different person, is a wonderful way "to get to know" Hans Bethe. I read, every bit of it, and found the text most enjoyable and illuminating. I recommenmd the book to other physicists and, especially, to young folk. They could do worse than have Bethe as a role model!
