Orígens de la teoria quàntica de camps (1927-1940)

  • Garcia Doncel, Manuel (Principal Investigator)

Project Details


We propose to study the historical origins and the first scientific acceptance of Camps'quantum theory. It emerged from the new quantum mechanics of 1925-26 as an attempt at relativist formulation and from the need to deal with the radiation-matter interaction. Its first applications are related to the probabilities of transition and the intensity of the spectral lines of the atom. It was soon applied also to several collision processes. We shall begin our study with the pioneering works published between 1927 and 1932 by PAM. Dirac, P.Jordan, W. Pauli, W.Heisenberg, E. Fermi and JR. Oppenheimer. We shall analyse their conceptual discrepances and their mathematical equivalents, continuing with research into the strategies applied between 1933 and 1940 to the theoretical and experimental problems which began to be solve after the war. The theoretical problems are related to divergent resu
