About this book

Eugene Wigner is one of the very few scientists that may safely be describedas creators of 20th-century physics. This volume of his Collected Works is devoted to his contributions to nuclear energy. In his Introduction and Annotations A.M. Weinberg surveys Wigner's contributions to nuclear-reaction physics and nuclear engineering, at the same time giving a glimpse of the early history of nuclear-reactor technology. Wigner himself gave a lively and critical account, which is published in this volume for the first time. Furthermore the book contains forty-two reports and memoranda from 1941 to 1945 and twelve of Wigner's many patents relating to nuclear energy.

Reviews

"...it is a highly desirable addition to the library in any college where a physics program is in place, and it is an indispensable addition in any school where nuclear engineering is also taught." - American Journal of Physics
"I would recommend it to any budding nuclear phycist - and the older ones too!" - Australian & New Zealand Physicist
