Quantum theory may be bizarre and inexplicable but it s been shown to account for as much as percent of American GDP as this brilliant new book by science writer extraordinaire Brian Clegg reveals br br The Stone Bronze and Iron Ages and the birth of steam machinery and electricity saw human life transformed by new materials and technology Clegg who studied physics at Cambridge University and specializes in making the strangest aspects of the universe accessible to the general reader explores the Quantum Age the revolution led by our understanding of the very very small br br Atoms electrons and photons of light are all quantum particles acting totally unlike the objects we experience This weird quantum behavior lies at the heart of every electronic device and powers lasers in everything from DVDs to eye correction It is also behind quantum biology the astonishing new realization that biological functions from our ability to see and photosynthesis in plants to the amazing ability of birds to navigate rely directly on quantum effects br br We ve all heard about how odd quantum theory is But in this book for the first time Clegg reveals to a popular science audience precisely how i useful i it is Incredible revelations along the way will thrill popular science fans and general readers alike br br b Brian Clegg b is an acclaimed science writer published by Icon Books and St Martin s Press His books include i Inflight Science i i Dice World i forthcoming i The Universe Inside You i i Gravity i and i Extra Sensory i br br br, Have you ever wondered what humans did before numbers existed How they organized their lives traded goods or kept track of their treasures What would your life be like without them br br Numbers began as simple representations of everyday things but mathematics rapidly took on a life of its own occupying a parallel virtual world In i Are Numbers Real i Brian Clegg explores the way that math has become more and more detached from reality and yet despite this is driving the development of modern physics From devising a new counting system based on goats through the weird and wonderful mathematics of imaginary numbers and infinity to the debate over whether mathematics has too much influence on the direction of science this fascinating and accessible book opens the reader s eyes to the hidden reality of the strange yet familiar entities that are numbers, An exploration of the terrifying threats to our world that fill today s headlines from global warming epidemic to the threat of nuclear weapons and the risk posed by the leading edge devices like the Large Hadron Collider i Armageddon Science i by Brian Clegg is everything you want to know about potential man made disaster br br Climate change Nuclear devastation Bio hazards The Large Hadron Collider What do these things have in common They all have the potential to end our world Every great scientific creation of man is balanced by an equal amount of danger as there s no progress without risk i Armageddon Science i is an authoritative look at the real mad science at work today that recklessly puts life on Earth at risk for the pursuit of knowledge and personal gain This book explores the reality of the dangers that science poses to the human race from the classic fear of nuclear destruction to the latest possibilities for annihilation Combining the science behind those threats with an understanding of the real people responsible as well as providing an assessment of the likelihood of the end of the world this isn t a disaster movie it s i Armageddon Science i, The phenomenon that Einstein thought too spooky and strange to be true br br i What is entanglement i It s a connection between quantum particles the building blocks of the universe Once two particles are entangled a change to one of them is reflected i instantly i in the other be they in the same lab or light years apart So counterintuitive is this phenomenon and its implications that Einstein himself called it spooky and thought that it would lead to the downfall of quantum theory Yet scientists have since discovered that quantum entanglement the God Effect was one of Einstein s few and perhaps one of his greatest mistakes br br i What does it mean i The possibilities offered by a fuller understanding of the nature of entanglement read like something out of science fiction communications devices that could span the stars codes that cannot be broken computers that dwarf today s machines in speed and power teleportation and more br br In i The God Effect i veteran science writer Brian Clegg has written an exceptionally readable and fascinating and equation free account of entanglement its history and its application Fans of Brian Greene and Amir Aczel and those interested in the marvelous possibilities coming down the quantum road will find much to marvel illuminate and delight
