This reprint volume is in honour of one of the leaders of Italian high-energy physics, Antonino Zichichi, who is now 65 years old. It covers the first part of his activity: the years 1959-1976, probably the most intense of his scientific career. The volume includes reprints of articles and of some published laboratory reports, documenting the extraordinary constancy of Zichichi in a scientific programme which spanned more than a decade and laid the foundations for the subsequent discovery by M Perl of the heavy lepton, HL (now called � ), first proposed and searched for at CERN and Frascati by Zichichi in the early sixties.


The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, G. Charpak et al; a telescope to identify electrons in the presence of pion background, T. Massam et al; a large electromagnetic shower detector with high rejection power against pions, M. Basile et al; range measurements for muons in the GeV region, A. Buhler et al; proton-antiproton annihilation into electrons, muons and vector bosons, A. Zichichi et al; an experiment on the timelike electromagnetic structure of the proton, M. Conversi et al; limits on the electromagnetic production of heavy leptons, V. Alles-Borelli et al; experimental check of crossing symmetry in the electromagnetic interaction of leptons, V. Alles-Borelli et al; limits on the mass of heavy leptons, M. Bernardini et al. (Part Contents).
