  1. Allan V. Horwitz (2002). Creating Mental Illness. University of Chicago Press.score: 1770.0
    In this surprising book, Allan V. Horwitz argues that our current conceptions of mental illness as a disease fit only a small number of serious psychological conditions and that most conditions currently regarded as mental illness are cultural constructions, normal reactions to stressful social circumstances, or simply forms of deviant behavior.

  6. L. Burakovsky & L. P. Horwitz (1995). Generalized Boltzmann Equation in a Manifestly Covariant Relativistic Statistical Mechanics. Foundations of Physics 25 (9):1335-1358.score: 120.0
    We consider the relativistic statistical mechanics of an ensemble of N events with motion in space-time parametrized by an invariant “historical time” τ. We generalize the approach of Yang and Yao, based on the Wigner distribution functions and the Bogoliubov hypotheses to find approximate dynamical equations for the kinetic state of any nonequilibrium system, to the relativistic case, and obtain a manifestly covariant Boltzmann- type equation which is a relativistic generalization of the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck (BUU) equation for indistinguishable particles. This equation (...)

  7. Y. Strauss & L. P. Horwitz (2000). Representation of the Resonance of a Relativistic Quantum Field Theoretical Lee–Friedrichs Model in Lax–Phillips Scattering Theory. Foundations of Physics 30 (5):653-694.score: 120.0
    The quantum mechanical description of the evolution of an unstable system defined initially as a state in a Hilbert space at a given time does not provide a semigroup (exponential) decay, law. The Wigner–Weisskopf survival amplitude, describing reversible quantum transitions, may be dominated by exponential type decay in pole approximation at times not too short or too long, but, in the two channel case, for example, the pole residues are not orthogonal, and the evolution does riot correspond to a semigroup (...)
