Proposed nonconservation of parity in strong interactions involving mesons Physical Review 60:468, 1941 With G. Wataghin, M. D. S. Santos & G. Occhialini first observed the phenomenon of mesons
production in groups simultaneously emitted in an one nuclear process (1941)
Proposed ChandrasekharSchonberg limit With S. Chandrasekhar. On the evolution of the main sequence stars. Astrophys. Journal 96:16172, 1942.
Presented a dinamical variational principle (1944) obtained by F. Rohrlich in 1959
Introduced the idea of indistinguishability of particles in a classical context and the Fock spaces in classical statistical mechanics (19523) With S. Godsack & G. Vanderhaeghe. Possible example of a new mode of disintegration of the neutral meson. Nuovo Cimento 10:1480, 1953 Demonstrated a link between the quantized motion of the Madelung fluid and the trajectories of the de BroglieBohm theory (1954)
Suggested a new idempotent to the Heisenberg algebra (1958) Published the paper Quantum Mechanics and Geometry in Anais Acad. Bras. Ciencias 29, 1957 and 30, 1958 in 5 parts in which anticipated super symmetry principle before Soviet physicists (1969) and introduced 2 Grassmann algebras extensions (commutative and anticommutative) known as GrassmannSchonberg algebras
Brought up ideas about “primary physical continuum” in Proceedings of International Conference on Elementary Particles, Kyoto, Japan, 1965.
Showed spin geometrical origin
Explained mesonic origin of cosmic rays
Proposed an unity between classical and quantum treatment of matter
