A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Quantum Theory is the most revolutionary discovery in physics since Newton. This book gives a lucid, exciting, and accessible account of the surprisin g and counterintuitive ideas that shape our understanding of the sub-atomic world. It does not disguise the problems of interpretation that still rema in unsettled 75 years after the initial discoveries. The main text makes no use of equations, but there is a Mathematical Appendix for those desiring stronger fare. Uncertainty, probabilistic physics, complementarity, the pro blematic character of measurement, and decoherence are among the many topic s discussed. This volume offers the reader access to one of the greatest di scoveries in the history of physics and one of the outstanding intellectual achievements of the twentieth century. About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.
