The subatomic realm has a name for weirdness, spawning any variety of profound misunderstandings, trips into japanese mysticism, and woolly pronouncements at the interconnectedness of all issues. Cox and Forshaw’s rivalry? there is not any desire for quantum mechanics to be considered this manner. there's a lot of mileage within the “weirdness” of the quantum international, and it usually results in confusion and, frankly, undesirable technological know-how. The Quantum Universe cuts in the course of the Wu Li and asks what observations of the wildlife made it important, the way it used to be built, and why we're convinced that, for all its obvious strangeness, it's a solid theory.
The quantum mechanics of The Quantum Universe supply a concrete version of nature that's related in its essence to Newton’s legislation of movement, Maxwell’s idea of electrical energy and magnetism, and Einstein’s conception of relativity.
