It's supposed to be for the layman, and it appears fairly basic, but I have some background, so it's hard for me to judge that. I loved how any shortcomings of the classical theory were presented in a way that would make you think and think and think before you get answers of what happened afterwards. Things like the possibility of multiple universes and the quantum reality are talked about and explained throughout the book. Still, the way he wrote, it's not much difficult for a guy like me to comprehend the book. There were concepts which were totally ambiguous to me and went way above my head.
That part dealt with actual state of quantum theory, and needs considerable conceptual clarity, which is not so easy to muster at my stage. I think a g 4 stars for science nerds, 3 stars for everyone else. Worst, his level of detail and required scientific background is horribly inconsistent. Keep in mind that this an illustration of what Schrodinger saw as the problem with the Copenhagen idea of Quantum superposition. It turns out to be a slow read, because it gives you examples, and then to fully understand the examples you find yourself working out the aspects of it. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. وايضًا نصف الكتاب ينقضه نصفه الثاني، اذ ان كل قوانين جزء الكتاب الاول تتمحور حول الميكانيكا الكلاسيكية مما يجعلها محدودة وليست اهلًا لتفسير عجائب الكون الباقية! Oh and the presentation of Everett's interpretation was slobby.
However this is not a. The same happens with the scientist and great minds that had a lot to do with this kind specific type of physics. About Author John Gribbin's books include The Hole in the Sky, a survey of the destruction of the ozone layer, and Hothouse Earth, a study of the greenhouse effect. Physics was one subject i was never good at during High school not that i was great at any of the other subjects though but Physics was a nightmare. John Gribbin takes us step by step into an ever more bizarre and fascinating place, requiring only that we approach it with an open mind. Well, first of all I really believe that 'science does not need dressing-up in the hand-me-downs of someone else's philosophy'. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction.
His also writes science fiction. So far, it has been a great intro to quantum mechanics. ترجمة الكتاب إلى العربية كانت متميزة لأنها تمت على يدي باحثين عربيين متخصصين في نفس المجال. Imagine a box with a cat inside. This book not only clarified some of them but also instilled in me a deep interest in Physics. اكثر ما ادهشني في هذا الكتاب هو سلوك الجسيمات والموجات الصغيرة المايكروية وكيف انها تغير من سلوكها عندما ننظر لها! عندما بدأت قراءة الكتاب كنت مستمتعاً لكن عندما قطعت شوطاً بدأت الأحداث والأسماء والنظريات والتواريخ تكثر وتتداخل ببعضها حتى فقدت التركيز! I literally rushed through the first two-third of the book, all along feeling a genuine regret fornthe fact that had I studied this book before embarking on my quest to become a Chemistry graduate, I could have appreciated the things a lot more, in the process picking up much more than a degree.
At least up to the publication date anyway. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction. Okay I finally finished the book. Gribbin reveals the concepts very slowly, which might not be a bad thing, so this may seem a bit tedious at first. Okay, so to best describe this book, I need to first describe Schrodingers cat. He has written regularly for The Times and the Guardian, and is physics consultant for the New Scientist.
كان من الأجدى للكاتب أن يبتعد عن التشويش والتفصيل قدر الإمكان ويحاول صياغة الموضوع في قالب أبسط حتى يكون أقرب إلى عامة القرّاء غير المتخصصين. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat is a fascinating and delightful introduction to the strange world of the quantum - an essential element in understanding today's world. If one has an interest in physics which has been sustained after high school, one might pick this book up and go through it without distractions. Available only to approved bidders. Okay I finally finished the book. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing pages. John Gribbin tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth far stranger than any fiction.
Even so, Greene's description of the basic science is unparalleled. Really an incredible book about Quantum Mechanics. It felt demeaning at some sentences! I just finished the book for the second time, and I'm realizing now that it's much better as a group read. If you are looking for a more in-depth yet entertaining book about quantum physics, then this one might be for you! بعد ذلك يأخذنا الكاتب برحلة اخرى لا تخلوا من المتعة و اللذة عن اكتشاف حقيقة الذرة , والافكار الثورية التي تظمنتها. Author John Gribbin takes on a journey through the whole history of quantum physics. اعترف بخجلى الشديد لاننى لم افهم الكثير لنسيانى موضوعات فيزيائية اساسية ، واصابتى بالحنق ايضاً لانه تقريبا توقفت دراستنا عند الفيزياء الكلاسيكية وتكلمت باستحياء شديد على مبادىء النظرية النسبية ومعادلة شرودنجر. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences.
The first time I read it, our class used a discussion format to go over the material, and it made it much easier to absorb. ربما كنا غيرت تخصصى الحالى. This book not only clarified some of them but also instilled in me a deep interest in Physics. We recommend reading questions before you make any purchases. Not much math and fairly accessible but not as easy to read as Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Highly Recommended, and happy reading. In 1968, Gribbin worked as one of Fred Hoyle's research students at the Institute of Theoretical Astronomy, and wrote a number of stories for New Scientist about the Institute's research and what were eventually discovered to be pulsars.
In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction. I first read this book when I was a freshman in college a business major at the time. He investigates the atom- radiation- time travel- the birth of the universe- superconductors and life itself. He introduces the scientists who developed quantum theory. He explain raise certain of future present and history of quantum mechanics. And in a world full of its own delights, mysteries and surprises, he searches for Schrodinger's Cat - a search for quantum reality - as he brings every reader to a clear understanding of the most important area of scientific study today - quantum physics. He introduces the scientists who developed quantum theory.
ربما كنت سافهم الكثير مما بدا لى كطلاسم اثناء دراستى الجامعية. تقفل الكتاب وتحاول تجمّع الي قرأته ده , تفتكر انه متكلمش عن الكواركات ونظرية الاوتار , تفتكر ان لسا قدامك يامااا. This title tells the story of quantum mechanics. I think a great deal of the genius was expressed in merely coming up with ways to prove ideas. It also simplifies many principles to make it more accessible to non mathematical minds such as myself. He believes that parallel worlds do exist but not the way in which we imagine in most of the sci-fiction books where we can hop between the alternate universes but all the alternate universes according to quantum theory branch out based on the choices that the observer encounters.
