Condition: Good


A delightful collection of articles about people who claim they have achiev ed the mathematically impossible (squaring the circle, duplicating the cube ); people who think they have done something they have not (proving Fermat' s Last Theorem); people who pray in matrices; people who find the American Revolution ruled by the number 57; people who have in common eccentric math ematical views, some mild (thinking we should count by 12s instead of 10s), some bizarre (thinking that second-order differential equations will solve all problems of economics, politics and philosophy). This is a truly u... View more info

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 str... View more info
