    Scattering Theory. by Aleksei G. Sitenko

    New York, NY Springer Verlag, 1991. Hardcover First Ed USA; unstated. EX-LIBRARY, withdrawn, showing the usual treatments. Else, Very Near Fine: The lower corner tips are very mildly bumped. Binding square and secure; text clean. Virtually 'As New', showing no flaws. NOT a Remainder or Book-Club. 8vo. 294pp. With 32 Figures. Translated by O.D. Kocherga. Springer Series in Nuclear and Particle Physics. First Ed USA; unstated. Hardback: No DJ 'as issued'. A.G. Sitenko gives an introduction to nonrelativistic scattering theory. The presentation is mathematically rigorous, but is accessible to upper level undergraduates in physics. The relationship between the scattering matrix and physical observables, i.e., transition probabilities, is discussed in detail. Among the emphasized topics are the stationary formulation of the scattering problem, the inverse scattering problem, dispersion relations, three-particle bound states and their scattering, collisions of particles with spin and polarization phenomena. The analytical properties of the scattering matrix are discussed. Exercises are included to help the reader to gain some experience and more expertise in scattering theory.

    Hydrogen Atom: Proceedings of the Symposium Held in Pisa, Italy, June 30-July 2, 1988. by G.F. Bassani, M. Inguscio, and T.W. Hansch [Editors]

    New York, NY Springer-Verlag, 1989. Hardcover First Ed, unstated. Very Good: shows light wear to extremities; former owner's name at front free endpaper and at the top edge and fore edge; slightest spine lean. Binding secure; text clean. Despite noted flaws, remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 353pp. First Ed, unstated. Hardback: No DJ 'as issued'. Atomic hydrogen, the simplest of all stable atoms, has been a challenge to spectroscopists and theoreticians for many years. Here, as in similar systems like positronium, muonium and possibly helium, the accuracy of theoretical predictions is comparable to that of experimental measurements. Hence exciting confrontations are possible. This together with expected large experimental improvements explains the strong interest in the symposium held in Pisa in June-July 1988. The resulting book completely covers the precision spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen and hydrogen-like systems, and also discusses aspects of QED and the influence of strong fields.

    Ueber die Ablenkung eines Lichtstrals von seiner geradlinigen Bewegung, durch die Attraktion eines Weltkörpers . . . by Soldner, Johann

    Berlin: bey dem Verfasser, 1801. Soldner, Johann Georg von (1776-1833). Ueber die Ablenkung eines Lichtstrals von seiner geradlinigen Bewegung, durch die Attraktion eines Weltkörpers . . . In Astronomisches Jahrbuch für das Jahr 1804 (1801): 161-172. Whole volume, 8vo. [4], 268pp. 2 folding plates. Berlin: bey dem Verfasser, und in Commission bey G. A. Lange, 1801. 200 x 115 mm. Half sheep, marbled boards ca. 1801, minor worming in front cover, lightly rubbed but sound. Fine copy. Small ownership stamp on title, occasional marginal annotations. First Edition. Soldner's paper represents "the earliest work on the deflection of light in the gravitation field of the sun . . . On the assumptions that light has weight, and that it is deflected according to Newton's law of gravitation, [Soldner] computed the bending of a ray passing the limb of the sun." (Wylie, "The path of light in a gravitational field," Am. Math. Monthly 32 [1925]: 404). Soldner's calculations "are based on Newton's emission theory, according to which light consists of particles. On this picture the scattering of light by the sun becomes an exercise in Newtonian scattering theory. . . . Soldner made the scattering calculation, put in numbers, and found ? [the value of the deflection]= 0."84" (Pais, p. 200)-a result remarkably close to the actual value of 0."87. In 1911 Einstein, in his paper "Ueber den Einfluss der Schwerkraft auf die Ausbreitung des Lichtes" (Ann. Phys. 35: 898-908), used a different method but the same basic assumptions to come up with a similar value for this "Newtonian deflection." The gravitational bending of light by the sun was one of three tests Einstein posed in 1916 to confirm the general theory of relativity; in 1919, Sir Arthur Eddington and his collaborators became the first to observe and record this phenomenon. Pais, Subtle is the Lord, pp. 198-200.
