Reality Is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Reality-Not-What-Seems-Journey-eboo...
From the best-selling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics comes a new book about the mind-bending nature of the universeWhat are time and space made of? Where does matter come from? And what exactly is reality? Scientist Carlo Rovelli has spent his life exploring these questions and pushing the boundaries of what we know. Here he explains how our image of the world has changed throughout centuries. From Aristotle to Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday to the Higgs boson, he takes us on a wondrous journey to show us that beyond our ever-changing idea of reality is a whole new world that has yet to be discovered.

The Quantum Universe: Everything that can happen does happen

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Universe-Everything-that-ha...
The Quantum Universe brings together two authors on a brilliantly ambitious mission to show that everyone can understand the deepest questions of science. But just what is quantum physics? How does it help us understand the world? Where does it leave Newton and Einstein? And why, above all, can we be sure that the theory is good? The bizarre behaviour of the atoms and energy that make up the universe has led to some very woolly pronouncements on the nature of all interconnectedness. Here, Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw give us the real science, and reveal the profound theories that allow for concrete, yet astonishing, predictions about the world. This is our most up-to-date picture of reality.

Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know®

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Physics-Everyone-Needs-Know...
Around 1900, physicists started to discover particles like electrons, protons, and neutrons, and with these discoveries believed they could predict the internal behavior of the atom. However, once their predictions were compared to the results of experiments in the real world, it became clear that the principles of classical physics and mechanics were far from capable of explaining phenomena on the atomic scale. With this realization came the advent of quantum physics, one of the most important intellectual movements in human history. Today, quantum physics is everywhere: it explains how our computers work, how lasers transmit information across the Internet, and allows scientists to predict accurately the behavior of nearly every particle in nature. Its application continues to be fundamental in the investigation of the most expansive questions related to our world and the universe.However, while the field and principles of quantum physics are known to have nearly limitless applications, the fundamental reasons why this is the case are far less understood. In Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know, quantum physicist Michael G. Raymer distills the basic principles of such an abstract field, and addresses the many ways quantum physics is a key factor in today's science and beyond. The book tackles questions as broad as the meaning of quantum entanglement and as specific and timely as why governments worldwide are spending billions of dollars developing quantum technology research. Raymer's list of topics is diverse, and showcases the sheer range of questions and ideas in which quantum physics is involved. From applications like data encryption and quantum computing to principles and concepts like "quantum nonlocality" and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know is a wide-reaching introduction to a nearly ubiquitous scientific topic.

★☆★Welcome to Your First Quantum Physics Beginner's Guide!★☆★3rd Edition!Including Special ★BONUS★ content, right after ConclusionEver wondered about how light moves? What does it mean to study the smallest particles known to man? How does science measure the smallest particles in the world, such as atoms, protons, neutrons and electrons? What is ether and how did it become a source of debate in the scientific community?Studying the smallest particles known to man can be exciting work. This study of the world on the molecular level, particularly matter and energy, is the realm of Quantum Physics. Scientists use mathematical equations to help them explain the behavior of matter and energy within the Universe. If you have a curiosity about the world of Quantum Physics, but thought the science textbooks would be too much to absorb, this book is for you. With an overview of what Quantum Physics is, historical background into the scientists who created many of the theories that make up Quantum Physics, and a look at a few of those theories. Quantum Physics is more than the study of matter and energy, but dives into the behavior of matter and energy on a molecular level. Scientists use the information they gather through experiments, observation and continually more precise measuring tools to explain how the building blocks of our world work together.This book dives into a discussion of wave particle duality and how this theory has continued to mystify scientists even today. Or learn how a particle can appear to go through the wall, versus around it. Using light as an example, this book explains how wave particle duality was discovered, who was able to explain the multiple conflicting observations and finally, what scientists have used this information to create. Learn about Einstein and his disagreements with the scientists of his time over various theories in Quantum Physics. Get a better understanding of how theories within Quantum Physics relate to one another.

What is Real?: The Unfinished Quest for the Meaning of Quantum Physics

https://www.amazon.co.uk/What-Real-Unfinished-Meaning-Quantu...
Every physicist agrees quantum mechanics is among humanity's finest scientific achievements. But ask what it means, and the result will be a brawl. For a century, most physicists have followed Niels Bohr's Copenhagen interpretation and dismissed questions about the reality underlying quantum physics as meaningless. A mishmash of solipsism and poor reasoning, Copenhagen endured, as Bohr's students vigorously protected his legacy, and the physics community favoured practical experiments over philosophical arguments. As a result, questioning the status quo long meant professional ruin. And yet, from the 1920s to today, physicists like John Bell, David Bohm, and Hugh Everett persisted in seeking the true meaning of quantum mechanics. What is Real? is the gripping story of this battle of ideas and the courageous scientists who dared to stand up for truth.

Quantum: Einstein, Bohr and the Great Debate About the Nature of Reality

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Quantum-Einstein-Debate-Nature-Real...
'This is about gob-smacking science at the far end of reason … Take it nice and easy and savour the experience of your mind being blown without recourse to hallucinogens' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian For most people, quantum theory is a byword for mysterious, impenetrable science. And yet for many years it was equally baffling for scientists themselves.In this magisterial book, Manjit Kumar gives a dramatic and superbly-written history of this fundamental scientific revolution, and the divisive debate at its core. Quantum theory looks at the very building blocks of our world, the particles and processes without which it could not exist.Yet for 60 years most physicists believed that quantum theory denied the very existence of reality itself. In this tour de force of science history, Manjit Kumar shows how the golden age of physics ignited the greatest intellectual debate of the twentieth century.Quantum theory is weird. In 1905, Albert Einstein suggested that light was a particle, not a wave, defying a century of experiments. Werner Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and Erwin Schrodinger's famous dead-and-alive cat are similarly strange. As Niels Bohr said, if you weren't shocked by quantum theory, you didn't really understand it.While "Quantum" sets the science in the context of the great upheavals of the modern age, Kumar's centrepiece is the conflict between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality and the soul of science. 'Bohr brainwashed a whole generation of physicists into believing that the problem had been solved', lamented the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann. But in "Quantum", Kumar brings Einstein back to the centre of the quantum debate. "Quantum" is the essential read for anyone fascinated by this complex and thrilling story and by the band of brilliant men at its heart.

QUANTUM PHYSICS for Beginners in 90 Minutes without Math: All the major ideas of quantum mechanics, from quanta to entanglement, in simple language

https://www.amazon.co.uk/QUANTUM-PHYSICS-Beginners-Minutes-w...
With this concise guide on quantum theory we have pursued our aim of creating the most comprehensible, brief and systematic picture of the behavior of reality at the micro level: the reality of quantum physics. This behavior is very much different from what we humans are used to dealing with in our everyday lives, so naturally this subject is quite hard to comprehend for many.We believed that the best way to introduce the subject reliably is to start at the beginning, presenting the observations, thoughts and conclusions of each of the world’s greatest physicists through their eyes, one at a time. In this way we hope that the reader may take an enjoyable journey through the strange truths of quantum theory and understand why the conclusions of these great minds are what they are.This book starts with the most general view of the world and gradually leads readers to those new, unbelievable but real facts about the very nature of our universe.
