Werner Karl Heisenberg () was a German theoretical physicist and one of the key creators of quantum mechanics, but perhaps best known for his ‘Uncertainty Principle.” He has written other books such as ‘Physics and Philosophy’ and ‘Physical Principles of the Quantum Theory.’Cited by: Werner Heisenberg () 42 works Search for books with subject Werner Heisenberg ().

WERNER HEISENBERG AND THE SEMANTICS OF QUANTUM MECHANICS This book examines Werner Heisenberg’s interpretation of quantum theory and the influence of Albert Einstein. Heisenberg’s semantical view is the chrysalis of the contemporary pragmatist philosophy of language. Heisenberg () was born in Wurzburg, Germany, and studied.

Werner Heisenberg, in full Werner Karl Heisenberg, (born December 5, , Würzburg, Germany—died February 1, , Munich, West Germany), German physicist and philosopher who discovered () a way to formulate quantum mechanics in terms of matrices. For that discovery, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics for Werner Heisenberg () Werner Heisenberg is the ambitious s on of a mbitious parents. For a concise and illumina ting survey of this development se e Pais’ book [P]. Seven years after winning the Nobel Prize for elucidating the "uncertainty principle," a basis for the new quantum mechanics, physicist Werner Heisenberg () was working night and day to. Werner Heisenberg Biographical W erner Heisenberg was born on 5th December, , at Würzburg. He was the son of Dr. August Heisenberg and his wife Annie Wecklein. His father later became Professor of the Middle and Modern Greek languages in the University of Munich.

When these were summed, Heisenberg found a ground state (lowest-energy configuration) in which all the spins of the electrons lined up in parallel that is, a ferromagnetic state without the need for any external magnetic field (Nature Milestones: Spin). From to , Heisenberg () was a Privatdozent at Göttingen. Werner Heisenberg () was a German theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner. Heisenberg was a main contributor to the German atomic program during World War II, in direct competition with the Manhattan Project. In , he visited . Werner Heisenberg recalls his role in the creation of quantum mechanics and its subsequent developments, including symmetry breaking and the role of time. Werner Heisenberg - The following interview with Werner Heisenberg was conducted by David Peat (DP) and Paul Buckley (PB) in the early 's for broadcast as part of a CBC. A winner of the Nobel Prize, Werner Heisenberg (–) was born in Würzberg, Germany, and received his doctorate in theoretical physics from the University of Munich. He became famous for his groundbreaking Uncertainty (or Indeterminacy) Principle.
