The quantum zoo: a tourist's guide to the neverending universe
Joseph Henry Press, 2006 - 200 Seiten
Two towering achievements of modern physics, quantum theory and Einstein's general theory of relativity together explain virtually everything about the world we live in. Almost a century after the dramatic paradigm shift brought about by these theories, most people still don't feel comfortable with the essential principles underlying them. But if you think that the marvels of modern physics have passed you by, it really isn't too late. Author Marcus Chown makes quantum physics and relativity not only painless, but fun.
The Quantum Zoo allows us to stroll the world of cutting-edge physics. We observe the Universe's most incredible phenomena from a safe distance. Finally tamed into submission, both quantum theory and relativity gradually lose their ferocity so that they can be understood - and fully appreciated - by all.
