Report on the Present Situation in the Non-Linear Spinor Theory of Elementary Particles

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


The non-linear spinor theory, as an attempt for a more fundamental theory of elementary particles, rests on the conviction that the complicated spectrum of elementary particles—as, for example, in old times the optical spectrum of the iron atom—must finally be deducible from an underlying natural law; and we hope it to be a simple law, whatever its mathematical form may be.
