In October of 1927, the world's atomic experts gathered
at a Hotel in Brussels for a conference. Niels Bohr,
Albert Einstein, Max Born, and Erwin Schr?dinger were
among the senior physicists present, along with younger
scientists such as Louis de Broglie and Werner
Heisenberg. The topic was the "wave-particle paradox"
described in an atomic theory conceived only a year
before. The debate lasted into the evening and continued
at breakfast the next morning. It broke out at other
conferences, and raged in the scientific journals; and
thus seven decades of controversy was born. David Wick
has traced the major line of the argument over the years
in a most engaging style with clear descriptions of the
concepts and ideas.
