... reaching closure with the wave-particle duality as an accomplishment of quantum mechanics. Since then there has been an intermittent debate on the need for and adequacy of such a concept, even if this debate has been absent from the literature on the history of physics and from physics teaching.

One central aspect of this process was the creation of new concepts, such as tunneling, resonance, exchange, Bloch wave, and Fermi surface. These concepts have become common parts of the language of quantum...
