Heisenberg, Werner (1901-76). Die Struktur der leichten Atomkerne. Offprint from Zeitschrift für Physik 96 (1935). 228 x 154 mm. Original printed wrappers, slightly dust-soiled. Fine.
First Edition, Offprint Issue. Heisenberg’s last technical paper on nuclear structure. In the paper, which discusses the structure of light atomic nuclei, “[Heisenberg] proposed to replace the Thomas-Fermi approximation method, which had been preferred thus far and accounted badly for the data on light nuclei, by a Hartree-Fock method” (Mehra & Rechenberg, The Historical Development of Quantum Physics, 6, p. 973).
