[Ebook] Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolution By John Gribbin – Pikavippi-ilman-luottotietoja.us

Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolution Erwin Schr Dinger Was An Austrian Physicist Famous For His Contribution To Quantum Physics He Won The Nobel Prize In 1933 And Is Best Known For His Thought Experiment Of A Cat In A Box, Both Alive And Dead At The Same Time, Which Revealed The Seemingly Paradoxical Nature Of Quantum Mechanics.Schr Dinger Was Working At One Of The Most Fertile And Creative Moments In The Whole History Of Science By The Time He Was Starting University In 1906, Einstein Had Already Published His Revolutionary Papers On Relativity Now The Baton Of Scientific Progress Was Being Passed To A New Generation Werner Heisenberg, Paul Dirac, Niels Bohr, And Of Course, Schr Dinger Himself.In This Riveting Biography John Gribbin Takes Us Into The Heart Of The Quantum Revolution He Tells The Story Of Schr Dinger S Surprisingly Colourful Life He Arrived For A Position At Oxford University With Both His Wife And Mistress And With His Trade Mark Accessible Style And Popular Touch Explains The Fascinating World Of Quantum Mechanics, Which Underpins All Of Modern Science.

    Muy buen libro Una biograf a clara y completa, maravillosa Para m , lo m s destacable es que se adentra en la f sica, es decir, no solo analiza la vida del cient fico, sino que se detiene a explicar con detalle el contexto cient fico as como los descubrimientos cient ficos necesarios para poder poner en relevancia el trabajo de Erwin No solo aprendes sobre la vida del cient fico, sino que tambi n, y mucho, sobre mec nica cu ntica.Adem s, la vida de Erwin es de esas que los bi grafos tie...

    I m giving this a high rating because I think it deserves it for what the book seems intended to deliver not so much a full biography of Schr dinger as a quick history of the quantum revolution that s reasonably up to date as of 2010 or so and the part Schr dinger played in it If you don t care about the science and shame on you or instead were looking for adetailed treatment of either the science or Schr dinger, you won t be fully satisfied.There s no question that the book is a bir I m giving this a high rating because I think it dese...

    It might not be rocket science but quantum physics certainly is devilishly difficult to understand As John Gribbin notes in his introduction to Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolution, it took many top scientists, working over the first three decades of the twentieth century, to work out just what quantum physics is and, when they did find out, some of them didn t like what they had found Quantum physics seemed contrary to pretty much everything that classical physics held sacred, revea It might not be rocket science but quantum physics certainly is devilishly difficult to understand As John Gribbin notes in his introduction to Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolution, it took many top scientists, working over the first three decades of the twentieth century, to work out just what quantum physics is and, when they did find out, some of them didn t like what they had found Quantum physics seemed contrary to pretty much every...

    Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolution is a popular science book by John Gribbin The very readable book alternates between chapters which are a biography of the physicist Schrodinger and the advances in physics which his life coincided with Overall, it works well as an introduction to the subject, but I thinkin depth books would be needed, even at the popular level, to understand both quantum mechanics and the man himself There are also occaisional references to his other popular Erwin Schrodinger and the Quantum Revolution is a popular science book by John Gribbin The very readable book alternates between chapters which are a biography of the physicist Schrodinger and the advances in physics which his life coincided with Overall, it works well as an i...

    A excellent biography for the general reader This biography is for the non math major Erwin Schrodinger life is very interesting in that he was one of the fathers of quantum theory as well as being influential in biology with the rise of quantum molecular biology chemistry John Gribbin s biography writes a objectively about physicist Schrodinger s professional and private life He writes of Schrodinger s affairs and infatuations with younger women as it relates to his physics creativity He h A excellent biography for the general reader This biography is for the non math major Erwin Schrodinger life is very interesting in that he was one of the fathers of quantum theory as well as being influential in biology with the rise of quantum molecular biology chemistry John Gribbin s biography writes a objectively about physicist Schrodi...

    I d be lying if I said I knew what was going on in this book I have started reading it again Mind boggling stuff I went into the bookstore looking for The Celestine Prophecy and took this book home instead Left a happy, averted customer.

    Interesting to learn about Schr dinger and his contemporaries in the world of physics The author does an effective job of telling the story of the controversies within the world of physics as theories were developed, challenged and redevel...

    John Gribbin has been writing what amounts to the same book for years, so by now he is good at it The book covers the life of Erwin Schr dinger and the quantum mechanics he worked on His personal life is certainly interesting While married to his wife Anny for life, he was always madly in love with someone else And when that love went well, his scientific output improved His burst of scientific creativity at the age of thirty eight is explained by Hermann Weyl that Schr dinger did his grea John Gribbin has been writing what amounts to the same book for years, so by now he is good at it The book covers the life of Erwin Schr dinger and the quantum mechanics he worked on His personal life is certainly ...

    A bit dry, not perhaps as focused as it might have been.It took me a while to get into this I was looking for a biography of Schrodinger, and a lot of the first half of the book was context,about people before and around him I understand it s necessary to set the scientific scene, but I found it frustrating I thought I was getting a bio, but it didn t read that wayThe second half improved somewhat I got a better sense of the man as a person, even if the science was beyond me it se A bit dry, not perhaps as focused as it might have been.It took me a while to get into this I was looking for a biography of Schrodinger, and a lot of the first half of the book was context,about people before and around him I understand it s necessary to set the scientific scene, but I found it frustrating I thought I was getting a bio, but it didn t read that wayThe second half improved somewhat I got a better sense of the man as a person, even if the science was beyond me it seems to require prior introductory reading, to be honest I can t imagine lay readers making anything of this I rather get the feeling that Gribbin s audience is historically minded physicists rather than the average person.For me at least, I know nothing about quantum physics so some of what he was talking about was absolutely incomprehensible it gave me that fed up, irritated feeling I get when wading through philosophy What is quantum physics N...

    Little insight into Schr dinger as person or intellect the man as subject seems to be pretense to pontificate about the Multiverse and no collapse theories a book he s apparently written repeatedly, given the self citations Among people who think about these things, the Copenhagen Interpretation has probably fallen out of favor, but the point that these are all, effectively, philosophical interpretations of a mechanically sound theory is lost here An experimentalist cracked me up at a Founda Little insight into Schr dinger as person or intellect the man as subject seems to be pretense to pontificate about the Multiverse and no collapse theories a book he s apparently written repeatedly, given the self citations Among people who think about these things, the Copenhagen Interpretation has prob...
