Enrico Fermi, winner of the Nobel Prize for research in neutron physics, makes accessible to the general student of physics the most significant results of the field theories of elementary particles, emphasizing simple, semi quantitative procedures requiring a minimum of mathematical apparatus.
Enrico Fermi was an Italian American Physicist, creator of the world s first nuclear reactor, the Chicago Pile 1 He has been called the architect of the nuclear age and the architect of the atomic bomb He was one of the very few physicists in history to excel both theoretically and experimentally Fermi held several patents related to the use of nuclear power He was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on induced radioactivity by neutron bombardment and the discovery of transuranic elements He made significant contributions to the development of quantum theory, nuclear and particle physics, and statistical mechanics attended a local grammar school, and his early aptitude for mathematics and physics was recognized and encouraged by his father s colleagues, among them A Amidei In 1918, he won a fellowship of the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa He spent four years at the University of Pisa, gaining his doctor s degree in physics in 1922, with Professor Puccianti.Soon afterwards, in 1923, he was awarded a scholarship from the Italian Government and spent some months with Professor Max Born in G ttingen With a Rockefeller Fellowship, in 1924, he moved to Leyden to work with P Ehrenfest, and later that same year he returned to Italy to occupy for two years 1924 1926 the post of Lecturer in Mathematical Physics and Mechanics at the University of Florence.In 1926, Fermi discovered the statistical laws, nowadays known as the Fermi statistics , governing the particles subject to Pauli s exclusion principle now referred to as fermions , in contrast with bosons which obey the Bose Einstein statistics.In 1927, Fermi was elected Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Rome a post which he retained until 1938, when he immediately after the receipt of the Nobel Prize emigrated to America, primarily to escape Mussolini s fascist dictatorship.In 1944, Fermi became an American citizen, and at the end of the war 1946 he accepted a professorship at the Institute for Nuclear Studies of the University of Chicago, a position which he held until his untimely death in 1954.
