The Theory of Almost Everything: The Standard Model, the Unsung Triumph of Modern Physics

#ad
Plume #ad - But the theory that explains everything else—the Standard Model of Elementary Particles—is virtually unknown among the general public. In the theory of almost everything, robert oerter shows how what were once thought to be separate forces of nature were combined into a single theory by some of the most brilliant minds of the twentieth century.

The Theory of Almost Everything: The Standard Model, the Unsung Triumph of Modern Physics #ad - The first, which describes the force of gravity, is widely known: Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. There are two scientific theories that, taken together, explain the entire universe. Rich with accessible analogies and lucid prose, The Theory of Almost Everything celebrates a heretofore unsung achievement in human knowledge—and reveals the sublime structure that underlies the world as we know it.

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter Princeton Science Library

#ad
Princeton University Press #ad - A. Zee's introduction places feynman’s book and his seminal contribution to QED in historical context and further highlights Feynman’s uniquely appealing and illuminating style. Using everyday language, visualizations, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, spatial concepts, Feynman clearly and humorously communicates both the substance and spirit of QED to the layperson.

Celebrated for his brilliantly quirky insights into the physical world, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman also possessed an extraordinary talent for explaining difficult concepts to the general public. Here feynman provides a classic and definitive introduction to QED namely, quantum electrodynamics, that part of quantum field theory describing the interactions of light with charged particles.

Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum

#ad
Basic Books #ad - From the bestselling author of The Theoretical Minimum, a DIY introduction to the math and science of quantum mechanics. First he taught you classical mechanics. Unlike other popularizations that shy away from quantum mechanics' weirdness, Quantum Mechanics embraces the utter strangeness of quantum logic.

Now, physicist leonard susskind has teamed up with data engineer Art Friedman to present the theory and associated mathematics of the strange world of quantum mechanics. In this follow-up to the new york times best-selling The Theoretical Minimum, Susskind and Friedman provide a lively introduction to this famously difficult field, which attempts to understand the behavior of sub-atomic objects through mathematical abstractions.

Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum #ad - . The authors offer crystal-clear explanations of the principles of quantum states, among other topics, entanglement, uncertainty and time dependence, and particle and wave states, and each chapter includes exercises to ensure mastery of each area. Like the theoretical minimum, this volume runs parallel to Susskind's eponymous Stanford University-hosted continuing education course.

An approachable yet rigorous introduction to a famously difficult topic, Quantum Mechanics provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace. Basic Books AZ.

The Infinity Puzzle: Quantum Field Theory and the Hunt for an Orderly Universe

#ad
Basic Books #ad - Speculation is rife that by 2012 the elusive Higgs boson will be found at the Large Hadron Collider. Used book in Good Condition. Unfortunately, in its raw form, it doesn't make sense-its outputs are physically impossible infinite percentages when they should be something simpler, like the number 1. But there's more at stake-what we're really testing is our capacity to make the universe reasonable.

The Infinity Puzzle: Quantum Field Theory and the Hunt for an Orderly Universe #ad - Basic Books AZ. Only close can tell it. Our best understanding of physics is predicated on something known as quantum field theory. If found, the Higgs boson would help explain why everything has mass. The kind of physics that the higgs boson represents seeks to "renormalize" field theory, forcing equations to provide answers that match what we see in the real world.

The infinity puzzle is the story of a wild idea on the road to acceptance.

Uncertainty: Einstein, Heisenberg, Bohr, and the Struggle for the Soul of Science

#ad
Anchor #ad - Anchor Books. Basic Books AZ. The gripping, entertaining, and vividly-told narrative of a radical discovery that sent shockwaves through the scientific community and forever changed the way we understand the world. Werner heisenberg’s “uncertainty principle” challenged centuries of scientific understanding, placed him in direct opposition to Albert Einstein, and put Niels Bohr in the middle of one of the most heated debates in scientific history.

Heisenberg’s theorem stated that there were physical limits to what we could know about sub-atomic particles; this “uncertainty” would have shocking implications. Used book in Good Condition. In a riveting and lively account, david lindley captures this critical episode and explains one of the most important scientific discoveries in history, which has since transcended the boundaries of science and influenced everything from literary theory to television.
