The author describes all the major breakthroughs in the world of quantum physics starting from Planck’s quantisation of energy levels to the modern experimentation of the triple entanglement of particles performed in the late 20th century.
The Dream of Clauser, Horne, and Shimony. I am altogether happy that there is now a book on entanglement, almost 70 years after its discovery, and recommend it to people interested in the historical background and practical implications of quantum mechanics Discover what to read next.
Open Entanglfment See a Problem? Preview — Entanglement by Amir D.
Amir’s book starts out slowly and covers all the usual history of quantum mechanics, from Planck and Einstein onward. An okay introduction to entanglement, but get lost in the history and experimental setups. Or that someone who wants an introduction to quantum mechanics would not want to start with a book that focuses on one aspect.

What Does It All Mean? Also by Amir D. The author managed to explain what entanglement is from different view. Sep 24, Minutes Buy. She liked the book and gave it an 8. Kevin agreed that the experiment diagrams were helpful, and overall he thought the aczeel was well written and pretty clear. No trivia or quizzes yet.
LitFlash The eBooks you want at the lowest prices. Nevertheless, it has been rigorously verified numerous times since the s. Suffers from my pet peeve in popular science books — which is repeating lots of material you have read over and over again.
I had some trouble following some of those experiments, however, but the ones I did understand were absolutely fascinating.
Delle applicazioni, sempre volutamente, si parla di sfuggita nelle ultime pagine del libro, giusto per dare un qualche spunto per ulteriori letture: I enjoyed his Fermat’s Last Theorem: Return to Book Page. Want to Read saving…. Zmir in the last few pages does this book actually talk about the fact that entanglement has been proven as reality, and virtually no space is given to discussing what it mig Promising a discussion on one of the most fascinating topics in modern physics, this book disappoints.
This book, for the first half, has a lot of history about the theory.

Plight of the Living Dead. Einstein, Relativity and the Expanding Universe. Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists who set out to complete Einstein’s work. Entanglement tells the astounding story of the. Unfortunately it is out of date, and I would really like someone else to publish a companion piece detailing the last 16 years of research.
Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. Feb 28, Stephen Hackney rated it it was amazing. Mar 13, Bennett Coles rated it it was ok.
Explanations of the actual experiments which supposedly proved this phenomenon lacked in details and lucidity. Either way, it serves as another piece of the puzzle towards finding a theory of everything TOE. Moving forward, the author sntanglement about findings and experiments that in the end leads to the proof of particle entanglement. Read it Forward Read it first.
She thought some of the repetition was useful. That experiment receives a whole short chapter in Amir’s book. Amir, like the fine science writer he was, covered a diversity of topics well — including my favorite, mathematics. My impression is that Mr.
ENTANGLEMENT: The Greatest Mystery in Physics
The reality is more bizarre than what even the best mad scientists can come up with. I understood little of the subject matter, i. This is an excellent account of the formulation and evolution of quantum mechanics over the span of years.
However scientific flow was frequently disrupted by lengthy life stories of Physicists. On the science side, I do zczel recall knowing that the Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle could be demonstrated not only in sub- nucleon particles like the photon, but even in neutrons and atoms themselves.
Ron, however, rated it at just 4 on our scale.
