Batchelor, Murray T.
Hans Bethe introduced his now-famous ansatz to obtain the energy eigenstates of the one-dimensional version of Werner Heisenberg’s model of interacting, localized spins in a solid. Although it is among Bethe’s most cited works and has a wide range of applications, it is rarely included in the graduate physics curriculum except at the advanced level. The 75th anniversary of the Bethe ansatz is appropriately marked by reflecting on the impact of Bethe’s result on modern physics, ranging from its...[Show more]
