  Niels Bohr's discoveries in quantum theory led to advances in physics and our understanding of atomic structure. His work won him the Nobel Prize in and his ideas continue to propel physics towards new discoveries/5. Niels Bohr and the Quantum Atom is the first book that focuses in detail on the birth and development of Bohr's atomic theory and gives a comprehensive picture of it. At the same time it offers new insight into Bohr's peculiar way of thinking, what Einstein once called his 'unique instinct and tact'.Cited by:   Quantum Theory contains the seminal works of quantum theory from the early years of the 20th Century, representing breakthroughs in science that radically altered the landscape of modern knowledge: Quantum Theory of Line-Spectra by Niels Bohr and The Origin and Development of the Quantum Theory by Max : We begin of course with Max Planck and his discovery of quantum theory at the turn of the century then move swiftly on to the Swiss Patent Office clerk, Albert Einstein. Danish physicist Niels Bohr is the next to move to centre stage, though many of the supporting cast, like Rutherford, Thomson, and Soddy, are discussed as the story by:

Bohr applied the idea of quantum to electrons, leading to the development of quantum mechanics. Bohr's theory explained experimental results that were inexplicable in classical theory. Einstein rejected Bohr's theory overturning reality in dangerous but also thrilling ways. The clash culminated at the Solway conference/5().   For most people, quantum theory is a byword for mysterious, impenetrable science. And yet for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves. Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly-written history of this fundamental scientific revolution, and the divisive debate at its heart/5. Bohr and Quantum Theory offers an accessible and absorbing account of the man who was both a part of The Manhattan Project but also an advocate of held the key to understanding such intricate realities as black holes and nuclear energy. Bohr's Big Idea explains complex and crucial ideas in a clear and engaging way, placing quantum theory in the context of a man's life, work and time and 3/5(1). One of the best quantum physics books for beginners, the book was written with the assumption that the reader does not have any prior scientific or mathematical knowledge. Because of this, it provides a step-by-step guide to quantum theory from its basic principles to its .

  Bohr read Max Planck’s early quantum theory in and was instantly on the path to revolutionize the field. A few years later he proposed his atomic model, the model children all over the world are presented today in school. Quantum theory, the most successful physical theory of all time, provoked intense debate between the twentieth century's two greatest physicists, Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein. Quantum information theory has emerged from intensive study of the structure and interpretation of quantum theory to become one of the fastest growing areas of twenty-first century science.4/5(6). the years – have to be regarded as the dawn of quantum theory, which from then on would govern the concepts of modern physics (natural sciences). The enormous success of Bohr’s papers. Niels Bohr has 55 books on Goodreads with ratings. Niels Bohr’s most popular book is The Philosophical Writings of Niels Bohr, Vol. 1: Atomic Theory.
