  Werner Heisenberg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Werner Karl Heisenberg (December 5, 1901 – February 1, 1976) was a celebrated German physicist and Nobel laureate, one of the founders of quantum mechanics.
In 1957 Heisenberg together with Otto Hahn, Max von Laue, Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker and Max Born formulated and signed a protest against nuclear arming of the German Armed Forces and world-wide nuclear armaments, the so-called "Göttingen Declaration of the German Nuclear Physicists".
In it, an angry Bohr relates that Heisenberg, in their 1941 conversation, did not express any moral problems with the bomb making project, that Heisenberg had spent the past two years working almost exclusively on it, and that he was convinced that the atomic bomb would eventually decide the war.

Heisenberg was the head of Nazi Germany's nuclear energy program, though the nature of his work in this capacity has been heavily debated.

 Principio di indeterminazione di Heisenberg: Tutte le informazioni su Principio di indeterminazione di Heisenberg su ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Nella fisica quantistica, il principio di indeterminazione di Heisenberg sostiene che non è possibile conoscere simultaneamente la posizione e la velocità di un dato oggetto con precisione arbitraria.
Il principio di indeterminazione viene a volte spiegato erroneamente, sostenendo che la misura della posizione disturba necessariamente il momento della particella e lo stesso Heisenberg diede inizialmente questa interpretazione.
All'interno della diffusa (ma non universalmente accettata) interpretazione di Copenaghen della meccanica quantistica, il principio di indeterminazione è preso a significare che a un livello elementare, l'universo fisico non esiste in forma deterministica, ma piuttosto come una collezione di probabilità, o potenziali.

 "Cause And Effect"
Heisenberg (German physicist, 1901-1976; Nobel Laureate in 1932) was very active at the Conference, having been largely responsible for the development of modern theory.
Heisenberg and his followers were convinced that modern theory had established that the Law of Causality could no longer be supported and that to do so would be to nurse an illusion.
Heisenberg forcefully struck back at the causalists after Max Born (German physicist) fortified him with more ammunition, and in the spring of 1927 he again declared for acausality, this time with an air of certainty and finality.

Werner Karl Heisenberg (December 5, 1901 - February 1, 1976) was a celebrated physicist and Nobel laureate, one of the founders of quantum mechanics.
Most historians of science take this as evidence that the previous interpretation of Heisenberg's resistance was wrong, but some have argued that Bohr profoundly misunderstood Heisenberg's intentions at the 1941 meeting.
He wrote a book called "The Part and The Whole" about his life, his friendship with Bohr, and the evolution of quantum physics.

The effect of this principle is to convert the laws of physics into statements about relative probabilities instead of absolute certainties.
In 1926, Heisenberg developed a form of the quantum theory known as matrix mechanics, which was quickly shown to be fully equivalent to Erwin SchrOdinger's wave mechanics.
Heisenberg was a student of Arnold Sommerfeld, an assistant to Max Born, and later a close associate of Niels Bohr.

 Heisenberg, Werner --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - The online encyclopedia you can trust!
(1902–80), physicist, born in Hannover, Germany; founded (with Max Born and Werner Heisenberg) quantum mechanics and (with Wolfgang Pauli and Eugene Wigner) quantum electrodynamics; professor of theoretical physics in Rostock, Germany, 1929–44, in Berlin 1944, in Hamburg from 1947; published with Max Born ‘Elementary Quantum Mechanics', 1930.
German physicist Werner Heisenberg is most famous for his statement, published in 1927, that the position and the velocity of a subatomic particle cannot both be measured exactly, at the same time, even in theory.
Heisenberg's work on this principle and other formulations profoundly influenced the development...
