The Aharonov-Bohm effect is the quantum mechanical phenomenon that allows a charged particle to be affected by an electromagnetic field that does not exist in the vicinity of the particle, one of the stranger manifestations of quantum mechanics. This set contains the paper that predicted and described this phenomenon (first paper, 1959) and the paper that described the verification of the Aharonov-Bohm effect through the use of electron holography (second paper, 1982).
