1925. “Atomic Theory and Mechanics”: From the Old Quantum Theory to Heisenberg’s Quantum Mechanics

  • Arkady Plotnitsky
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Physics book series (SpringerBriefs in Physics)


This study follows the development of Bohr’s thinking concerning quantum phenomena and quantum mechanics, leading him to his interpretation of both, in part based on his concept of complementarity, introduced in the so-called Como lecture of 1927, which was also his first attempt to offer such an interpretation or, at least, to establish a framework for it.
