Wayne L. Wang was born in Taiwan and migrated to the U.S. for his graduate studies in engineering and physics. In 1971, Dr. Wang received his Ph. D. degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He did research as a theoretical physicist until 1975, publishing numerous papers on nuclear reaction theory.After spending five years on nuclear reactor safety research, he became a telecommunication engineer specializing in advanced mobile telecommunication systems and data communication.

作者王文隆博士出生台灣宜蘭市,前台北工業專科學校機械科畢業後,於一九六五年到美國進入研究院,做機械工程、核子工程、和理論物理學方面的研究。於一九七一年獲得麻省理工學院的博士學位。曾在卡尼基美濃大学及羅倫斯伯克萊狀態實驗室做理論的物理學的研究,在核子作用理論發表許多論文。在一九七五年到阿岡狀態實驗室做核子反應炉安全研究。五年後進入美國電話電報公司,致力于電信系統和數據通信的應用,成為電信工程師。

His cultural background spans equally both the Eastern and Western worlds. The similarities between Tao and quantum physics have attracted his early interest on Tao Philosophy. He believes that Tao is coherent and dynamic, and it may be systematically represented a modern theory. With his background in the Chinese language and modern physics, he has been able to formulate a Tao philosophy in a most coherent and consistent manner. He introduces a scientific process to formulate Tao Philosophy in a language independent fashion. He has successfully translated the most difficult Chinese classic, the Laotzu Tao Te Ching, with minimum ambiguity.

他的文化背景參半於東方和西方的世界。道和量子物理學之間的相似現象引起他的早期對道家哲學的興趣。他相信道是前后一致並且是一种動態的現象,因此,道是可以有系統地描述為一個現代理論。由於他的漢語和現代物理學的背景,他能用一種非常一致的模式來闡述道的哲學。他根據一個科學的程式解決了語言翻譯的問題,用一種不受語言限制的方法來闡述道的哲學。他成功地翻譯中國最困難的哲學文件之一:老子「道德經」。

His first book on this subject, Dynamic Tao and Its Manifestations, shows the intimate similarities between Tao Philosophy and Quantum Cosmology. His analysis of Tao Philosophy will set a new framework for modern Tao studies, in both the Eastern and the Western arenas.The project took more than four and half years to complete.

這是他在道学方面的第一本著作「動態的道和它的顯態」,充分顯示出在道家哲學和量子宇宙論之間的類似現象。他道學分析將奠定現代道學研究的新架構,將影响到東西方对道学方面的研究。

Abstract

A theory of photonuclear reactions is formulated using a projection-operator formalism. We obtain a T matrix describing a direct photoeffect and a resonance reaction. By introducing doorway and secondary-doorway states, we can conveniently study the structure and energy dependence of the T matrix.
The formalism is applied to the analysis of the photonuclear cross sections of O16. The ( gamma ,n) and ( gamma ,p) cross sections are calculated. We consider those channels in which the residual nucleus is left in the ground state (J pi =1 / 2-) or the third excited state (J pi =3 / 2-). In the shell-model formulation, the doorways are taken to be mixtures of 1p-1h states, which are constructed in the Tamm-Dancoff approximation. The secondary doorways are assumed to be 3p-3h states, which are constructed in the interacting-boson approximation of Iachello and Feshbach. By mixing the doorways and the secondary doorways, we obtain a microscopic description of the compound states formed in the reactions. The doorways are shown to be responsible for the gross structure of the giant dipole resonances, while their couplings to the secondary doorways give rise to intermediate structure. A particular model of the 3p-3h states, together with certain simplifications in the description of the reaction, reproduces some of the experimental data (the photodisintegration to the J pi =1 / 2- ground state) to a surprising degree of accuracy.
The calculation evidently shows the importance of the 3p-3h admixture in the low-lying odd-parity states of O16. Our results also give strong support to assigning E1 nature to the resonances at 21.0, 22.3, 23.1, 24.2, 25.2, and 25.6 MeV.

Intermediate Structure and the Giant-Dipole Resonance in O-16

C. M. Shakin and W. L. Wang

Received 16 February 1971

We develop a projection-operator theory of photodisintegration. It is shown that the coupling of 3p-3h (three-particle, three-hole) modes to the 1p-1h modes can explain the intermediate structure of the giant resonance in oxygen when the 1p-1h states are treated as "doorways" for gamma -ray absorption and for particle emission. The structure problem is treated using the interacting-boson approximation of Iachello and Feshbach.

Evidence for a Giant Quadrupole Resonance in Oxygen-16


Phys. Rev. Lett. 30, 301–304 (1973) [Issue 7 – 12 February 1973 ]

by W. L. Wang and C. M. Shakin

Received 5 October 1972

We calculate the angular distribution and polarization of the photoneutrons from O16 in the giant-dipole region. We have to supplement our E1 amplitudes, which were obtained previously, with large phenomenological E2 amplitudes; we interpret this as evidence for a giant quadrupole resonance. We show that the importance of E2 amplitudes makes the current data analysis in E1 approximation very doubtful. The assumed E2 resonance is also shown to be easily detected experimentally.
