Revue de presse

"A fascinating tour of the lives and afterlives of some of the most captivating concepts of quantum theory." -- David Kaiser, author of How the Hippies Saved Physics "A delight! A tour de force that is both illuminating and extraordinarily readable." -- Gino Segre, author of Ordinary Geniuses: How Two Mavericks Shaped Modern Science "This is an amazing book for scientists and humanists alike! Every page yields surprises-not only about the complex history of quantum physics but about how it impacts our understanding of ourselves in daily life. Required reading for anyone concerned with casting the fate of humankind in a radically new light." -- Edward S. Casey, author of The World at a Glance "Reading The Quantum Moment is a very fun way to learn about where quantum physics comes from and the strange, even astonishing places it has gone with or without the physicists for whom it is the language of their craft." -- Peter Galison, author of Einstein's Clocks, Poincare's Maps, professor of science and physics, Harvard University "Fascinating... Crease and Goldhaber have written an accessible and entertaining history that embraces both the science and the silliness of quantum mechanics." -- Publishers Weekly "An entertaining read." --Jim Baggott - Nature --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Do we live in one of many parallel worlds, with near-identical versions of ourselves spread across the multiverse? Is a quantum leap unthinkably massive or subatomically small? The language and the imagery of quantum mechanics are ubiquitous, yet the science and its journey into everyday language still confounds us. In The Quantum Moment, Robert P. Crease and Alfred Scharff Goldhaber tell how a controversial idea from an obscure branch of optics grew in complexity and authority, eventually dominating the scientific community and commanding the attention of the culture at large. Recounting fiery disputes between figures including Einstein, Schrodinger, and Pauli, the authors trace popular images time travel, parallel worlds, random behavior back to their scientific roots and uncover modern manifestations in everything from architecture and sculpture to the prose of John Updike. The Quantum Moment combines an exhilarating history of the quantum with shrewd insight into our experience of the everyday."

HASH(0x9a427960) étoiles sur 5 (Mostly) Accessible Physics 27 octobre 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is one of the most accessible yet soundly informative books I have read on the mysterious world of the quantum, the divide between orderly Newtonian classical/causal physics and the strange probabilistic and seemingly random subatomic world of quantum mechanics. The authors discuss pioneering physicists such as Planck, Einstein, and Bohr, and disputes between them over the completeness of the quantum theory. Concepts such as entanglement, complementarity, conjugate variables, the Uncertainty Principle, and the wave/particle duality are presented in a fresh and engaging manner. For the layman, like this reader, who has struggled through more arcane works, such as A Brief History of Time, this book is a welcome assurance that these concepts are not completely out of reach for non-specialists. Nevertheless, I am reminded that Descartes said something to the effect that one can touch a mountain but cannot put one's arms around it as one could a tree, and that to know something it is sufficient to touch it with your mind, but to grasp it is necessary to embrace it with your mind. Some of the discussion in this book I did in fact grasp, but much I confess to have merely touched upon, especially the mathematical equations.

At a time when it seems like each month brings forth some new book on quantum physics, this one stands out for its readability, reference to modern literature and art, and even a bit of sly humor. Nice companion piece to Louisa Gilder's excellent, "The Age of Entanglement."

HASH(0x9a5b8774) étoiles sur 5 Get over your old ways of thinking...... 13 février 2015

Well written for the neophyte. Wish this book had been written when I first started studying quantum mechanics. It would have saved me some time and a great deal of dismay.

I have been studying quantum mechanics now for about 20 years and have to keep going over and over the material. Yes, after all this time I count myself a neophyte. You have to open yourself to an entirely new way of thinking. There has been many a night when I got out of bed, went to the library and reread pages I'd read the day before. You'll say to yourself, "that can't possibly be what I read." What did that page really say? And, you'll find you've recalled correctly. Close your mouth and accept your incredulity as a constantly returning visitor as long as you stick with this topic.

I diagram sentences and draw flow charts. You've really got to want to know this stuff.

HASH(0x9a5b7cfc) étoiles sur 5 Great multidisciplinary overview of QM's "fallout" 23 mars 2015
Par S. J. Snyder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a very good book, and explains both the basics of quantum theory at a mid-level layperson's point of view AND its major philosophical implications.

That's half the point of the book, and one of the reasons one of the coauthors is a philosopher. I respectfully suggest discounting the low-rating reviewers for that reason; if you don't want to read a common-sense review of the philosophical implications of QM, then don't pick the book up in the first place.

I found this half very good. I actually found the layperson's physics half very good as well. I had a few things explained better here than I've read before, especially issues on statistical approaches to QM and the fuzziness of the classical-quantum "border."

HASH(0x9f84d420) étoiles sur 5 A great read and a great exposition of an important topic 25 mars 2015
Par Robert Marcus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A “must read” book for those interested in the quantum physics - classical physics dichotomy born in the beginning of the 20th century and still very much with us. Both authors are physicists at Stoney Brook, and Crease is also a philosopher with an uncanny ability to explain difficult concepts in a practical, level-headed way.

The focus, ultimately, is on the Bohr-Heisenberg approach and the growing dissatisfaction of others who refuse to accept the coexistence of two basically incompatible theories of nature. Other culture-based influences are also treated as they made their appearances - Eastern mysticism, the anthropic principle, EST, and others.

A great read and a great exposition of an important topic.
