Description du produit

Revue de presse

'Entertaining...both lucid and enjoyable....Like the best teachers, Susskind makes it fun to learn. With a deft use of analogy and a flair for language, he tames the most ferocious concepts....He has come up with the best visual metaphor for the multidimensinality of string theory that I've yet come across, one that alone is worth the price of the book' - Los Angeles Times
'Susskind is very down to earth, an easy-going and entertaining guide through the most exciting frontiers of theoretical physics' - New Scientist

Présentation de l'éditeur

What happens when something is sucked into a black hole? Does it disappear? Three decades ago, a young physicist named Stephen Hawking claimed it did-and in doing so put at risk everything we know about physics and the fundamental laws of the universe. Most scientists didn't recognize the import of Hawking's claims, but Leonard Susskind and Gerard t'Hooft realized the threat, and responded with a counterattack that changed the course of physics. THE BLACK HOLE WAR is the thrilling story of their united effort to reconcile Hawking's revolutionary theories of black holes with their own sense of reality-effort that would eventually result in Hawking admitting he was wrong, paying up, and Susskind and t'Hooft realizing that our world is a hologram projected from the outer boundaries of space.
A brilliant book about modern physics, quantum mechanics, the fate of stars and the deep mysteries of black holes, Leonard Susskind's account of the Black Hole War is mind-bending and exhilarating reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book about how physics is made. 12 janvier 2017
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It is for anybody interested in new physics who have a good understanding of basic concepts.
The book, tracks back the steps of a conceptual controversy that ultimately led to important physics breakthrough.
In so doing the author shows the struggle of how new physics is produced.
It provides an understandable account of emerging physics concepts, a feat not as well accomplished by other books.
As a physicist myself I recommend it to physics students of any grade for they will see how the masters reason when facing the unknown. They will also find a consistent approach to many fresh ideas.
I enjoyed the book and learned from it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Struggle to Really Explain Black Holes 24 mai 2013
Par Orville B. Jenkins - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A fascinating recounting of the various Quantum theories attempting to account for the phenomena associated with Black Holes. Susskind provides a historical perspective as well as summing up the varieties of approach to the problem. I especially appreciated the good detailing of String Theory, which I was only vaguely familiar with.

He provides actual mathematical formulae and their variations that illustrate the problems and approaches he is discussing to a solution to the lose ends existing in our knowledge about the state of the universe and its workings. We learn a lot here also about the inner workings of procedures used in theoretical physics and the interpersonal dynamics involved.

This is posed in a personal context contrasting his view and approach to black holes with the analysis and theory proposed by Stephen Hawking. So he is explaining the factors and approaches involved from teh point of view of his understanding and theory of Quantum Physics. This provides important insights into the community dynamic of doing professional science. Some readers reacted to what they sensed as an egotistical streak in this book.

I am interested in the mechanics and concepts involved. I would suggest readers focus on the core content, and not get distracted with the personal testimonial aspects of the format. This was a refreshing, enlightening and rewarding volume. Exciting, even, I might say!

I am loving this book so far.

I just want to point out a typo in the beginning of the book where he is going over scientific notation.

"The mass of an electron is vastly smaller. In fact, the mass of a single electron is about 9 × 10^231 kilograms."

The exponent should be negative. Not sure how to reach the publishers so hopefully they will see this, it could cause confusion for some readers.

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Although it overplays the "War" angle, the account of this period of discovery is absorbing, entertaining and makes the complex physics surprisingly approachable (not to mention comprehensible).

There are a couple of instances where the supposed "proof" - or at least basis - of presented theories seems a little self-fulfilling or cyclical in nature, but this is perhaps to be expected if the fundamentals of those theories are to be maintained at a level suitable for a general audience. Never-the-less, I came away with a better grasp - or so it feels - of Quantum Physics and String Theory than when I started, and a much greater appreciation for the machinations that leads to these theories and the processes that lead to what comes to be seen as the "science" in these areas and how those accepted "facts" can change over time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for getting a non-quantitative understanding of current issues in physics. 20 août 2013
Par Jolly Jogger - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
My BS in physics is over forty years old. This was a great way to catch up. I had forgotten that string theory was beginning to play a big role in nuclear physics. When the book pointed out some of the things that were well proven about it at the nuclear scale, it reduced my scepticism about all the mathematical hard labor being devoted to string theory in order to understand what is happening at much higher energies. As usual, physicist have looked at very simplified special cases in order to make the math tractable and clarify basic processes. The book explains many of these clearly. It is also a reminder that the most advanced human minds barely have the capacity to begin unravelling quantum mechanics and cosmology at their limits, and a lot more humility would probably be appropriate!
