Julian Schwinger at Columbia University
Julian Schwinger became a frequent visitor to the excellent Columbia University Library in New York City. The Schwingers lived quite close to the University, and Julian often walked there, casually entering the library, picking up a book and finding a quiet place somewhere to read. Julian continued to use the library at will until he became a regular student at Columbia. This chapter chronicles Schwinger's education at Columbia University, his work on spin resonance and neutrons, his stay at the University of Wisconsin, and his final year in graduate school. The introduction of the tensor force was Schwinger's first significant and truly original contribution to nuclear physics.
