Kluwer / Springer, 1984Drawing on the correspondence between Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg and Wolfgang Pauli, this book tells the story of how quantum mechanics emerged from their combined efforts to try and understand what was going on inside the atom. Overseen by Bohr, it was Pauli who first saw that the familiar concepts of space and time have no meaning for an electron in an atom, and that this was the key to the new theory. Heisenberg then converted this insight into a working theory. This book is currently available only from university libraries, or in the Japanese translation (Maruzen, 1992). 50+ cites
