Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

From reviews of the first edition: 'This book is a potential block-buster. Written in a nice style, structured like a popular lecture, its language is lucid and the contents well selected … it has the most thorough coverage and clear explanation of classical physics that I have read for a long time … It has additonally the advantages of being well-researched, with the latest available material … and written by a first rate physicist with excellent communication skills.' Samar Jha, The Statesman

'Whitaker's book is admirably clear and deceptively simple: he has a real knack of describing difficult ideas in an accessible form. He is up-to-date, never descends to the facile level so often adopted by writers of introductory books, and what's more, has provided a thorough bibliography so that the really interested reader can find the original treatment. I recommend this book not only for students but for anyone with an interest in fundamental issues in physics.' P. L. Knight, Journal of Modern Optics

'I most strongly recommend this book to anyone - lay person, student and professional alike - interested in the foundations of our candidate for the fundamental theory of physics (quantum mechanics).' James T. Cushing, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'Whitaker takes us all the way from the 19th century classical world inherited from Newton and Maxwell, through the quantum revolution and all the way to the present day ideas of quantum information. … a remarkable testament to Whitaker's scholarship, enthusiasm for his subject and to his skill as a writer. His book can be recommended strongly to anyone who is interest in the development of quantum theory or, indeed, to our current understanding of the physical world. … For researchers in quantum mechanics there is a wide-ranging and informative discussion and analysis, complete with an extensive bibliography. I shall return to it often.' Contemporary Physics

Biographie de l'auteur

Andrew Whitaker is Professor of Physics at Queen's University Belfast. His main interests are the foundations of Quantum Theory and also the history and philosophy of Quantum Theory.

Première phrase
If I were to ask a number of people in the street what they think was the most important new theory in physics in the twentieth century, and who has been the greatest physicist, I am fairly sure that - of those able to express an opinion at all - a substantial majority would say that relativity has been the greatest theory, and Einstein the greatest physicist. Lire la première page

Excellent overview 17 août 2006
Par Couder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
For students of physics, professional physicists and interested lay persons this is undoubtedly the most complete and objective overview of the many 'interpretations' of quantum mechanics as of today. For those interested in looking "behind the mathematical formalism of QM" an absolute must read.

One minor point of critique though: this book explicitly addresses lay persons (which is supposedly why you won't find many equations in the book). Although in chapters 2 - 4 prof Whitaker splendidly epitomizes the evolution of classical (with a glance at relativity) and quantum mechanics, I fear those readers not already familiar with physics may find this a little too terse (a lot of ground is covered in very few pages). Chapters 5 - 7 explaining the Bohr-Einstein debate and Bell's theorem are simply splendid reading for everyone. Chapter 8, rounding up recent developments, is very comprehensive, but again, the average lay person may find the summaries of quite a number of recent articles a bit tedious in the end (but ideal for students or physicists). Chapter 9 introduces quantum information theory, again a very good overview, but in my opinion a bit out of place and surely a subject that is worthy of a book on its own.

All in all, there are many good popular science books out there explaining one or two QM interpretations, but this one covers them all, and it's absolutely the best explaining the Bohr-Einstein debate and the impact of Bell's theorem on this debate.

Dillema is spelt "dilemma" 11 juillet 2000
Par R. H. Barton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is an excellent introduction, summary of and history of the debate on interpretation of quantum theory, a subject which demands careful reading. As such, it may be read to profit by those interested in some of the twists and turns of "received opinion". It is not for those who might like their pages covered in equations (- the text discusses J S Bell's elucidation of Von Neumann's errors on the subject of hidden variable theories - a clear case where the mathematics concealed rather than revealed). The book is widely referenced which should have enough range of material to satisfy and extend readers at all levels. In my top ten on the subject area.

A truly excellent book 27 avril 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have found this to be an extremely helpful book due to my interests in physics. It is an interesting philosophical taint on a subject matter which is mostly fought in obscure mathematics. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in quantum physics philosophies.

Superb history and introduction 19 mai 2006
Par sargoxyz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is not a textbook; it is a combined history and introduction to modern physics. It is clear, well written and a good starting point for anyone interested in Relativity or Quantum Theory.
