Description
Enrico Fermi (1901-54), discoverer of the Fermi statistics, author of the Fermi beta decay theory, and a leading force in the work that culminated in the famous first controlled nuclear chain reaction at the University of Chicago on December 2, 1942, is regarded as one of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century. Student, collaborator, and lifelong friend of Enrico Fermi, Emilio Segre presents a rich, well-rounded portrait of the scientist, his methods, intellectual history, and achievements. Explaining in nontechnical terms the scientific problems Fermi faced or solved, Enrico Fermi, Physicist contains illuminating material concerning Fermi's participation and contribution to the U.S. Atomic Energy project as well as his return to university life. In 1938 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.
