Description
We present a panoramic view of the main scientific manuscripts left unpublished by the brightest Italian theoretical physicist of the XX century, Ettore Majorana. We deal in particular: (i) with his very original "study" notes (the so-called "Volumetti"), already published by us in English, in 2003, c/o Kluwer Acad.Press, Dordrecht & Boston, and in the original Italian language, in 2006, c/o Zanichelli pub., Bologna, Italy; and (ii) with a selection of his research notes (the so-called "Quaderni"), that we shall publish c/o Springer, Berlin. We seize the present opportunity for setting forth also some suitable -scarcely known- information about Majorana's life and work, on the basis of documents (letters, testimonies, different documents...) discovered or collected by ourselves during the last decades. [A finished, enlarged version of this paper will appear as the editors' Preface, at the beginning of the coming book "Ettore Majorana - Unpublished Research Notes on Theoretical Physics", edited by S.Esposito, E.Recami, A.van der Merwe and R.Battiston, to be printed by Springer verlag, Berlin].
