But what may be the most noteworthy aspect of the book reviewed here is that it also describes several other very important experiments on entanglement, of which I don’t know any other treatment at the elementary level. In his newest book, Aczel Fermat’s Last Theorem discusses a great mystery in physics: I have rarely had such disparate opinions about different portions of a book.
ENTANGLEMENT: The Greatest Mystery in Physics
He didn’t feel he understood quantum mechanics any better than he had before he read Aczel’s book, and that it didn’t further his knowledge that much. Aczel’s father was the captain of a passenger ship that sailed primarily in the Mediterranean Sea.
Suffers from my pet peeve in popular science books — which is repeating lots of material you have entanglemet over and over again.
However, later sections of the book get bogged down in minutiae. There is a long history of disputes about how to do this, including as a major part of the long debate between Einstein and Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg and their allies. Also some of experiments weren’t explained well despite pictures.
Description Could a Beam me up, Scottya soon become a reality? A great book on a very bizarre fact of quantum entahglement. Ottmar Ette and Julia Maier.
Refresh and try again. LitFlash The eBooks you want at the lowest prices. Superposition is the strange property that one or more quantum particles may have, in which the particles can actually be in multiple potentially observable simple states amur the same time.
He studied at the University of California, Berkeley.
A Mysterious Force of Harmony. Paperbackpages. The details of many of these experiments occupy the second half of Amir’s book. Or that someone who wants an introduction to quantum mechanics would not want to start with a book that focuses on one aspect. The second half is interesting, including both theoretical work like Bell’s theorem and the experimental tests of it. She liked the book and gave it an 8.
Jan 11, Kristenyque rated it liked it. Two particles that have interacted at one point amie time can be in a joint state that is a superposition of states of both particles. He accepted a professorship at Bentley College in Massachusettswhere he taught classes on the history of science and the history of mathematics.
I was interested in the subject matter but the book as it explains in the intro tries in multiple ways to explain entanglement. The Best Books of This early history occupies the first half of the book, so that entanblement who’re already familiar with the history may become impatient to get to the more recent “good stuff”. I first came across the bizarre quantum phenomenon known as “Entanglement” while reading a book called The Large, the Small and the Human Mind by Roger Penrose, then I lost it at some point.
This works very well as a an audio book, despites some tables and formulae. Sembra tuttavia che questa parte non sia stata sottoposta ad un adeguato lavoro di editing: About Entanglement Can two particles become inextricably linked, so that a change in one is instantly reflected in its counterpart, even if a universe separates them?
These are who has contributed to the search for particle entanglement. However, this concept violates the theory of special relativity, since communication between two places cannot occur faster than the speed of light. The end result is that the book entangement confusing and, in many cases, misleading. By the end, I felt I knew all I wanted to know about entanglement.
Amir, like the fine science writer he was, covered a diversity of topics well — including my favorite, mathematics. Your Place in the Universe. Preview — Entanglement by Amir D. Several years later Aczel earned a Ph.
Entanglement by Amir D. Aczel
A decent book on Entanglement. Aczel, a scientist himself, keeps the speculation grounded in math and science. Gisin led a group that performed a key experiment that verified the nonlocal character of quantum entanglement. Feb 11, Kamarul Mansur rated it really liked it Shelves: Seek more and you will be even more puzzled.

May 16, Odo rated it liked it Shelves: With accesible language and a highly entertaining tone, Amir Aczel shows us a world where the improbable—from entanglemment codes to teleportation—becomes possible. This is a quick, easy read with an enlightening high-level overview of the mysteries and advances in understanding quantum entanglement. He graduated with a BA in mathematics inand received a Master of Science in Books by Amir D. Jan 22, Kazi Yasin rated it it was amazing.
