Introduction to the Unified Field Theory of Elementary Particles

  • W. Heisenberg
Part of the Gesammelte Werke / Collected Works book series (HEISENBERG, volume B)

Abstract

The present book contains a series of lectures which have been given at the University of Munich during the summer term 1965, with the hope to draw the attention of the younger generation of physicists to the present development of the unified field theory of elementary particles.
