About this book

The volume presents in chronological order English translations of 10 papers by Ettore Majorana, most of which have never been translated into English before. Two further contributions are also included: a talk on the Thomas-Fermi Method that Majorana gave at the General Meeting of the Italian Physical Society when he was still a student, and not included in his publication list to date. The other is "Notes for the Inaugural Lecture" of the Majorana Course at the University of Naples.
Each paper is accompanied by the comments of an expert in the respective field.
The volume will be of interest to the specialists in the History of Science, as well as to physicists concerned with problems related to Majorana’s contributions.

About the authors

Born in Rome in 1952, Luisa Cifarelli graduated with a degree in Physics in Bologna in 1975. First an INFN researcher in Bologna and fellow at CERN (Geneva), she began her university career in 1988, being appointed Chair of Physics in 1991. She has since taught at several Italian Universities (Naples, Pisa and Salerno) and is now a Professor of Experimental Physics in Bologna. Her research has chiefly focused on very high energy nuclear and subnuclear physics, conducted in the context of international collaborative experiments at major European laboratories, such as CERN and DESY (Hamburg). In the last ten years she has been involved in the design, construction and running of the large ALICE experiment at the CERN LHC for the study of heavy nuclei collisions at extreme, unprecedented energies. She has served on several councils, committees and commissions, including the CERN Council and the INFN Board of Directors. President of the Italian Physical Society since 2008, she was also President of the European Physical Society from 2011 to 2013. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, a member of the Academia Europaea and a member of the Committee on International Scientific Affairs of the American Physical Society. She is a member of the Scientific Committee of the "Ettore Majorana" Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture (Erice), and of the Scientific Council of JINR (Dubna). She is President of the "Enrico Fermi" Historical Museum of Physics and Centre for Study and Research (Rome).
