This explorative insight into the life and legacy of the famous Polish mathematician reveals his background and focuses on current research inspired by Stanislaw's vision. The text includes two pieces written by Stanislaw and personal conversations on John von Newmann and Paul Erdos. Stanislaw Marcin Ulam (pronounced ['sta?iswaf 'mart??in 'ulam]) (13 April 1909 – 13 May 1984), was a renowned Polish-American mathematician. He participated in America's Manhattan Project, originated the Teller–Ulam design of thermonuclear weapons, invented the Monte Carlo method of computation, and suggested nuclear pulse propulsion. In pure and applied mathematics, he produced many results, proved many theorems, and proposed several fertile conjectures.

Hydrogen Atom: Proceedings of the Symposium Held in Pisa, Italy, June 30-July 2, 1988.

By G.F. Bassani, M. Inguscio, and T.W. Hansch [Editors].

New York, NY Springer-Verlag, 1989. Hardcover First Ed, unstated. Very Good: shows light wear to extremities; former owner's name at front free endpaper and at the top edge and fore edge; slightest spine lean. Binding secure; text clean. Despite noted flaws, remains clean, sturdy, and quite presentable. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 353pp. First Ed, unstated. Hardback: No DJ 'as issued'. Atomic hydrogen, the simplest of all stable atoms, has been a challenge to spectroscopists and theoreticians for many years. Here, as in similar systems like positronium, muonium and possibly helium, the accuracy of theoretical predictions is comparable to that of experimental measurements. Hence exciting confrontations are possible. This together with expected large experimental improvements explains the strong interest in the symposium held in Pisa in June-July 1988. The resulting book completely covers the precision spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen and hydrogen-like systems, and also discusses aspects of QED and the influence of strong fields.

Scattering Theory.

By Aleksei G. Sitenko.

New York, NY Springer Verlag, 1991. Hardcover First Ed USA; unstated. EX-LIBRARY, withdrawn, showing the usual treatments. Else, Very Near Fine: The lower corner tips are very mildly bumped. Binding square and secure; text clean. Virtually 'As New', showing no flaws. NOT a Remainder or Book-Club. 8vo. 294pp. With 32 Figures. Translated by O.D. Kocherga. Springer Series in Nuclear and Particle Physics. First Ed USA; unstated. Hardback: No DJ 'as issued'. A.G. Sitenko gives an introduction to nonrelativistic scattering theory. The presentation is mathematically rigorous, but is accessible to upper level undergraduates in physics. The relationship between the scattering matrix and physical observables, i.e., transition probabilities, is discussed in detail. Among the emphasized topics are the stationary formulation of the scattering problem, the inverse scattering problem, dispersion relations, three-particle bound states and their scattering, collisions of particles with spin and polarization phenomena. The analytical properties of the scattering matrix are discussed. Exercises are included to help the reader to gain some experience and more expertise in scattering theory.
