Contents
Purpose and plan -- pt. 1. 1895-1945 : a history: New kinds of rays ; From uranic rays to radioactivity ; The first particle ; Interlude : earliest physiological discoveries ; Radioactivity's three early puzzles ; Pitfalls of simplicity ; [Beta]-spectra, 1907-1914 ; "It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity" ; Nuclear physics' tender age ; Quantum mechanics, an essay ; First encounters with symmetry and invariance ; Nuclear physics : the age of paradox ; Quantum fields, or how particles are made and how they disappear ; Battling the infinite ; In which the nucleus acquires a new constituent, loses an old one, reveals new forces with new symmetries, and is explored by new experimental methods -- pt. 2. The postwar years : a memoir: Of quantum eletrodynamics' triumphs and limitations and of a new particle's sobering impact ; In which particle physics enters the era of big machines and big detectors and pion physics goes through ups and downs ; Onset of an era : new forms of matter appear, old symmetries crumble ; Essay on modern times : 1960-83 ; Being a conclusion that starts as epilog and ends as prolog
