The Collected Papers of Peter J. W. Debye
Peter Debye has left his mark on the science of physical chemistry like no other scientist since
J. Willard Gibbs. The fiftyone papers in this volume are presented in the original English for his later writings,
and in translation from the German for his earlier work. Among the areas pioneered by Debye and covered in this
collection are XRay Scattering, Dipole Moments, Electrolyte Theory, and Light Scattering. Debye was awarded the
1936 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

Foundations of Bioenergetics
Harold J. Morowitz
This book presents those aspects of thermal physics necessary for understanding bioenergetics. Material
is carefully introduced as: definitions, empirical generalizations, postulates, and logical inferences from the
preceding three categories. Included are classical thermodynamics, information theory, statistical mechanics, ecological
energetics, and irreversible thermodynamics. A complete background is provided for the biologist or biochemist
desiring an indepth understanding of the physical foundations of the subject.

Atoms
Jean Perrin
In the first years of the 20th century the theory of Brownian motion and experiments on electronic
charge, radioactivity, and blackbody radiation made the atomic nature of matter an increasingly persuasive hypothesis.
Jean Perrin's experiments on Brownian motion and particle diffusion provided a confirmation of Einstein's theory,
which depended on the molecularkinetic view of matter. Perrin gathered the available information into his 1913
book Les Atomes. This masterpiece eliminated all objection to atomicity. Its message reverberates to the core of
modern chemistry, physics, and biology. This work brings together sixteen different ways of determining Avogadro's
number. There is no comparable book in science. Perrin received the 1926 Nobel prize in physics.

Foundations of Physics
R. Bruce Lindsay
Henry Margenau
Thousands of students of physics have found "Lindsay and Margenau" an indispensable work
in understanding their subject. How can a classic work retain its freshness in such a fast moving field? The answer
lies in the word "Foundations" in the title. In a unique and lasting way these two authors have probed
the postulates of physics, the mathematical techniques employed, and the methods of relating theory to experiment.
CONTENTS: The Meaning of a Physical Theory Space and Time in Physics The Foundation of Mechanics
Probability and Some of its Applications The Statistical Point of View The Physics of Continua
The Electron Theory and Special Relativity The General Theory of Relativity Quantum Mechanics
The Problem of Causality
