Einstein and the uantum

Einstein and the uantum free read è 109 Ed uantum mechanics observing that God does not play dice But in fact he thought about the nature of atoms molecules and the emission and absorption. This book made me fall in love with the genius of the man all over againOver the years I have read many books aimed at the layman about the development of science and especially the history of theoretical physics Of course I was aware of the whole not playing dice objection but never knew the extent of how much the genius of the man shaped the uantum understanding too The book does an excellent job of depicting the genius and prowess of Einstein in such an easy way to follow and understand The mix of anecdotes life story hard core physics and the well placed humour takes you through a gripping journey Thank you Mr Stone for bringing him to lifeI wonder what he would have made of m theory

Einstein and the uantum free read è 109 Einstein and the uantum reveals for the first time the full significance of Albert Einstein's contributions to uantum theory Einstein famously reject. This is without doubt a five star standout book though there are a couple of provisos that mean it won t work for everyoneIf you ask someone who has read a bit of popular science about the founders of uantum theory they will mention names like Planck Bohr Schr dinger and Heisenberg but as Douglas Stone points out the most significant name in laying the foundations of uantum physics was its arch critic Albert Einstein You may be aware that Einstein took Planck s original speculation about uantised energy and turned it into a description of the action of real particles in his 1905 paper photoelectric effect that won him his Nobel Prize but what is shocking to learn is just how much further Einstein went producing a whole string of papers that made the development of uantum theory almost inevitable It was Einstein for instance who came up the earliest form of waveparticle dualityI have never read anything that gave detail on this fascinating period of the development of physics the way that Stone does This isn t really a scientific biography Stone does dip into Einstein s life but often in a fairly shallow way What is much significant is the way he shows us the building blocks that would make the full uantum theory being put in place It really is absolutely fascinating Science writers like me tend to skip over large chunks of the way this developed throwing in just the highlights but Stone really gives us chapter and verse without ever resorting to mathematics demonstrating the route to uantum theory in a way he suggests that most working physicists have no ability to appreciate RemarkableI have two provisos A minor one is that Stone s context is not as well researched as his physics We are told that Arrhenius moved to Europe from Sweden perhaps a slight surprise for most Swedes to realise that they don t live in Europe And he calls Rutherford British admittedly the great New Zealand physicist did most of his best work in the UK but I m not sure we can count him as our ownThe bigger warning is that this book isn t going to work for everyone While I found some of the explanations notably of a Bose Einstein condensate the clearest I ve ever read Stone does fall into the typical trap of the physicist as science writer of assuming what comes naturally to him is eually accessible to the general reader I don t think he makes clear enough the basis in thermodynamics of the early work perhaps assuming that the statistical mechanics of vibrating bodies and other essentials that constantly turn up in the early workings are sufficiently straightforward as classical physics that they don t need much explanation Without that clear foundation his later explanations may be slightly hard going but I can only say that if you really want a feel for where uantum physics came from to persevere and go with the flow because it is well worth itPS I wish someone had told the cover designer how inappropriate the solar system like atom picture on the cover is for the topic

Einstein and the uantum free read è 109 Of light the core of what we now know as uantum theory than he did about relativityA compelling blend of physics biography and the history of science. At the outset I thought that this book would reveal what Einstein really thought about uantum mechanics beyond the scientific papers and debates Alas it just scratches the surface and settles for a defense of Einstein as the catalyst for uantum theory decently presented but incomplete
