The Quantum Physics Bible
The Definitive Guide To 200 Years Of Sub-Atomic Science
by Brian Clegg
- General Science, Physics & Mathematics, Best of 2017
How can a particle be in more than one place at the same time? How can it tunnel through an impenetrable barrier? How can a cat in a box be both alive and dead? The rules of quantum physics may seem to defy all logic, but this visually dynamic book explains them in bite-sized nuggets that anyone can understand. Covering a wide spectrum of topics-atoms, photons, quantum devices, spin, wave mechanics, sub-atomic particles, particle physics, and more-it gives meaning and context to a branch of science that is daunting if not incomprehensible.
Packed with photographs and illustrations, sidebars, feature boxes, and timelines and profiles about the field's groundbreaking scientists, The Quantum Physics Bible is an essential primer.
