Summary "Quantum physics explores the behavior of matter and energy at the atomic and subatomic levels--and is very complex and confusing subject. But with this clear and insightful guide by your side, you skip the complicated math and easily get to know the concepts, paradoxes, experiments, and more that make quantum physics so fascinating. In it, you get: The discoveries of Planck, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schroedinger, Einstein, and other quantum physicists. A primer on the three basic quantum postulates. A look at matter waves, the quantum wave function, and other aspects of quantum mechanics. An exploration of grand unification and the "theory of everything." Everyday applications of quantum physics--and what we can expect in the future,"--page [4] of cover.
