Personal and Historical Perspectives of Hans Bethe

IN 1999, legendary theoretical physicist Hans Bethe delivered three lectures on quantum theory to his neighbors at the Kendal of Ithaca retirement community (near Cornell University). Given by Professor Bethe at age 93, the lectures are presented here as QuickTime videos synchronized with slides of his talking points and archival material.

- Introduction (Large Video / Small Video / Audio Only)
- Lecture I (Large Video / Small Video / Audio Only)
- Lecture II (Large Video / Small Video / Audio Only)
- Lecture III (Large Video / Small Video / Audio Only)
- Appreciation (Large Video / Small Video / Audio Only)

Intended for an audience of Professor Bethe's neighbors at Kendal, the lectures hold appeal for experts and non-experts alike. The presentation makes use of limited mathematics while focusing on the personal and historical perspectives of one of the principal architects of quantum theory whose career in physics spans 75 years.

A video introduction and appreciation are provided by Professor Silvan S. Schweber, the physicist and science historian who is Professor Bethe's biographer, and Edwin E. Salpeter, the J. G. White Distinguished Professor of Physical Science Emeritus at Cornell, who was a post-doctoral student of Professor Bethe.

Thanks for this! So much to watch, so little time... I was very interested to see the Solvay conference clip.

The Perimeter Institute had online lectures for a while, but I can't find them any more. Do you know anything about this?
