It is only now that the importance of Majoranas work is being realised: Majorana fermions are intensely studied today, and his work on neutrino physics has provided possible explanations for the existence of dark matter. In this unique volume, Salvatore Esposito explores not only Majoranas known papers but, even more interestingly, unveils his unpublished works as well. These include powerful methods and results, ranging from the atomic two-centre problem, the Thomas Fermi model and ferromagnetism to quasi-stationary states, n-component relativistic wave equations and quantum scalar electrodynamics.

Featuring biographical notes and contributions from leading experts Evgeny Akhmedov and Frank Wilczek, this fascinating book will captivate graduate students and researchers interested in frontier science as well as in the history of science.
