  1. Constitution of Atomic Nuclei and Radioactivity.

    Constitution of Atomic Nuclei and Radioactivity.

    First edition, first impression. Review copy with the publisher's slip loosely inserted. George Gamow (1904-1968) made his first major contribution to physics in 1928 with his theory of alpha particle decay, explaining how the atomic nucleus emits an alpha particle (two protons and two neutrons) and transforms into an atom of lower atomic weight, a significant problem in understanding radioactivity.
