This fourteenth volume in the Poincaré Seminar Series is devoted to Niels Bohr, his foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory and their continuing importance today. This book contains the following chapters: - Tomas Bohr, Keeping Things Open; - Olivier Darrigol, Bohr's Trilogy of 1913; -John Heilbron, The Mind that Created the Bohr Atom; - Serge Haroche & Jean-Michel Raimond, Bohr's Legacy in Cavity QED; - Alain Aspect, From Einstein, Bohr, Schrödinger to Bell and Feynman: a New Quantum Revolution?; - Antoine Browaeys, Interacting Cold Rydberg Atoms: A Toy Many-Body System; - Michel Bitbol & Stefano Osnaghi, Bohr´s Complementarity and Kant´s Epistemology. Dating from their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience these seven chapters are of high educational value.


This volume is of general interest to physicists, mathematicians and historians.

Reviews

“The book under review is the product of a Paris seminar devoted to the celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the publication in 1913 of Niels Bohr’s three seminal papers on what is known nowadays as the Bohr model of the hydrogen atom. It collects several essays presented in this seminar that are quite accessible to a broad section of readers, either mathematicians, physicists or philosophers.” (Felipe Zaldivar, MAA Reviews, maa.org, August, 2016)
