Don't Be Afraid of Physics

Don't Be Afraid of Physics

Quantum Mechanics, Relativity and Cosmology for Everyone

by Ross Barrett and Pier Paolo Delsanto
Paperback
Publication Date: 29/01/2021
  $44.80
With the aid of entertaining short stories, anecdotes, lucid explanations and straight-forward figures, this book challenges the perception that the world of physics is inaccessible to the non-expert. Beginning with Neanderthal man, it traces the evolution of human reason and understanding from paradoxes and optical illusions to gravitational waves, black holes and dark energy. On the way, it provides insights into the mind-boggling advances at the frontiers of physics and cosmology. Unsolved problems and contradictions are highlighted, and contentious issues in modern physics are discussed in a non-dogmatic way in a language comprehensible to the non-scientist. It has something for everyone.
