  • Description
    Quantum theory is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences. Without it, we'd have no computers, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic engineering. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction. John Gribbin takes us step by step into an even more bizarre and fascinating place, requiring only that we approach it with an open mind. He introduces the scientists who developed quantum theory. He investigates the atom, radiation, time travel, the birth of the universe, super conductors and life itself. And in a world full of its own delights, mysteries and surprises, he searches for Schrodinger's Cat - a search for quantum reality - as he brings every reader to a clear understanding of the most important area of scientific study today - quantum physics. In Search of Schrodinger's Cat is a fascinating and delightful introduction to the strange world of the quantum - an essential element in understanding today's world.

    PHYSICS IS AMAZING

    As i started reading this book, i was searching for the topic of schrodinger's cat, eager to learn what it was, but quantam mechanics is weird. It was very interesting when the story of quantam world started. I've found all the 20th century research in this book. But bad thing is, i was very confused in epilogue. But whatever.... i do feel that physics is AMAZING

    Terrific

    I came to know about this book from SSR. Yeah from Sushant. Then I ordered and got this book today morning. I ordered it before but didnot get yet because of some issue from seller .They didnot ship this book and cancel it. But this time I have got this book. Finally I am very happy to get this book. Every one should read this book.... I read a few pages from pdf but i was not happy........ Ppl from any background who have basic knowledge of light quantum physics can easily understand this......
