Young Yukawa and Heisenberg’s Visit to Kyoto in 1929
- 11:00 to 12:00

Werner K. Heisenberg visited Japan, together with Paul A. M. Dirac, in August and September 1929, and they gave several impressive lectures on quantum theory in Tokyo and Kyoto. In Kyoto at that time, Hideki Yukawa (1907–1981), who would be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1949 for his theoretical research on mesons, tackled some difficult problems of theoretical physics concerning relativistic quantum mechanics and field quantum theory. This talk examines an important intersection of the Japanese and European research topics related to the the second quantization through the case of Yukawa’s early study and Heisenberg’s visit to Kyoto in 1929.
