The Ghost in the Atom: A Discussion of the Mysteries of Quantum Physics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anybody who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Niels Bohr's dictum bears witness to the bewildering impact of quantum theory, flying in the face of classical physics and dramatically transforming scientists' outlook on our relationship with the material world. In this book Paul Davies interviews eight physicists involved in debating and testing the theory, with radically different views of its significance.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

Nine distinguished physicists consider the conceptual foundations of quantum physics--its paradoxes as well as its profound implications for the theory of nature--within a text based on a BBC radio documentary broadcast.
