Photons: The History and Mental Models of Light Quanta by Klaus Hentschel
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 239 Pages | ISBN : 331995251X | 8.76 MB

This book focuses on the gradual formation of the concept of ‘light quanta’ or ‘photons’, as they have usually been called in English since 1926. The great number of synonyms that have been used by physicists to denote this concept indicates that there are many different mental models of what ‘light quanta’ are: simply finite, ‘quantized packages of energy’ or ‘bullets of light’? ‘Atoms of light’ or ‘molecules of light’? ‘Light corpuscles’ or ‘quantized waves’? Singularities of the field or spatially extended structures able to interfere? ‘Photons’ in G.N. Lewis’s sense, or as defined by QED, i.e. virtual exchange particles transmitting the electromagnetic force?

Ambiguities in Decision-oriented Life Cycle Inventories: The Role of Mental Models and Values (Eco-Efficiency in Industry and Science) by Frank Werner
English | Sep. 27, 2005 | ISBN: 1402032536 | 418 Pages | PDF | 8 MB

This book shows for the first time how mental models and values influence conclusions in the life cycle inventory step of LCA.
