He didn't come upwith the idea (that the properties of a system can be defined by the location and density of electrons), but he was involved with almost everything to turn it from an interesting idea into a useful theory. ——. Note: I wasn't questioning Walter Kohn. Four communications (Ger. Do they just cite other top 100 papers? for example, feynman no doubt did some great physics, but he gets much, MUCH greater recognition over two other guys who did the same work (tomonaga and schwinger, they shared the nobel prize) because he was a very accessible guy, a great speaker/teacher and had an amazingly outgoing personality. It has led to many speculations I kinda sorta knew what they were talking about up until Hartree and Hartree-Fock. Particle Properties. "New Evidence for the Existence of a Particle Intermediate Between the Proton and Electron", Phys. Thanks for that post--and for the support. Cookies are used by this site. It just breaks down the PDF (dunno if they wrote that part, or borrowed it) and stores the text. This experimental result indicates the presence of neutrino Some scientists are very careful and disseminate their research through a series of papers, or even a career. Careers - Terms and Conditions - Privacy Policy. Quantum Mechanics, however... Go back to wanking on Usenet, Louis, unless you're tired of getting schooled there by people who actually know physics. A good test would be to look at the citations of the famous papers. I do recall reading similar articles in Grad School. citing them. With such a broad subject, students find it hard to narrow down their research to a particular topic. Furthermore, while I can't speak to Tomonaga in this regard, Feynman made a major splash in a much broader spectrum of physical investigations than Schwinger did. Feynman Rev.Mod.Phys.20:367-387,1948 missing? Only the ground state can be fully described (I assume you write about the Kohn-Hohenberg theorem). Hall, E.H. (1879). Nauk 18, 13–40, 1963. more than 1000 citations over the history of the SPIRES-HEP database. A: Stationary States of Nuclei", "Experimental Test of Parity Conservation in Beta Decay", "Ueber das Gesetz der Energieverteilung im Normalspectrum", "On the Law of Distribution of Energy in the Normal Spectrum", "Über einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt", On a Heuristic Point of View about the Creation and Conversion of Light, "On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules, Part I", "On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules, Part II Systems Containing Only a Single Nucleus", "On the Constitution of Atoms and Molecules, Part III Systems containing several nuclei", Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen, "Quantisierung als Eigenwertproblem. mass and large mixing among the lepton generations. A goodly portion of the unclassified CPU power used my scientists around the world is probably dedicated to examining systems with DFT. As a by-product of this citation linkage, SPIRES-HEP can easily Univ. In Yang-Mills theories in d-dimensions. Comm. For THOSE systems, one has to go back to even earlier than the mid-60's, and go back to Moller - Plesset, and Perturbation Theory, the beast that that is. Carr-Parinello). at LHC). we have listed here are currently the most important papers in high-energy physics. topics that have engaged the attention of theorists and experimenters. Once production of your article has started, you can track the status of your article via Track Your Accepted Article. "Supplement to an Essay on the Theory of Systems of Rays" (, ——. 50 Best Physics Topics For All Levels. He's famous at least in Pasadena (where he taught at Caltech for several years); there are photographs of him all over the place and even a Feynman collage on the wall of a clothing store. I'm sure it would be neat to go through and read a lot of these papers, but it's going to be very hard and very slow and you are going to have to have tons of background material at your side just to get the most basic meaning from them. The complete list of the top 40 cited papers of 2000 and a more detailed scientific review can be found at the SLAC Web site. This paper shows how much physics and chemistry interact. As has been pointed out, it's possible for a paper to lie undiscovered for decades before being revived; parent is far more insightful than grandparent.
