An Outline of Wave Mechanics
Cambridge: at the University Press,, 1930. Cambridge: at the University Press,, 1930. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. Spine rolled and a little faded, lightly rubbed at extremities, corner bumped. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression of the author's first book, one of the earliest on wave mechanics. Inscribed by the Mott on the front free endpaper, "To Denis Weaver, with best wishes from the author, Nevill Mott, 9.6.86". Mott, one of the winners of the 1977 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on amorphous semiconductors, spent one year of his early career as a lecturer under William Bragg at Manchester. This book "was based on the lecture course he gave there, and his interest in the properties of materials dates from this time, no doubt stimulated by contact with Bragg and his crystallography group" (ODNB). The theory of wave mechanics was developed during the preceding five years by Heisenberg, Schrödinger, Dirac, and their colleagues to reconcile quantum mechanics with the wave theory of light. An attractive copy and uncommon signed.
