The Cosmic Code: Quantum Physics as the Language of Nature

Justin Pniower – unknown. This book by Pagels helps non-professional physicists understand topics that real physicists apgels still grappling with, and I think it helps that it was written at a simpler time in physics. Relativity and quantum mechanics have replaced Newtonian physics as the accepted reality of our universe. As for me, Pagels did a superb job in explaining quite a number of QM related concepts, such as randomness and probability distributions, the Bell’s inequality, the Schroedinger’s cat analogy and why the second law of thermodynamics cannot in fact be obtained from just cosmicc laws of motion of all the individual particles, as well as why infinities are obtained for the mass of Despite being written inthis book is a wonderful non-mathematical introduction to Pagrls Theory for the layperson.

Jun 07, Trevor Hallberg rated it it was amazing. Books by Heinz R. Pagels is unfailingly lighthearted and confident. Without the possibility of error and real indeterminacy implied by the quantum theory, human liberty is meaningless.

Membacanya seolah-oleh berada dalam bilik kuliah! Feb 16, Yusuf Zayed rated it it was amazing. Truth is truth, and an understanding of the physical world should only increase ones appreciation for both the spiritual and physical nature of our existance.

Great book if you are at all interested in physics, Einstein’s theory of relativity, and quantum mechanics. The Principle of Relativity. It is purposely light on the maths side for example, I would have appreciated some detail on fundamental items such as the Wave Equation, Bohr’s model of the atom, Schroedinger Equation, wave phase invariance etc.

The motivated reader, willing to put in the hard work, will be rewarded. The spectacular world pageos microcosmos consisting of proton, pavels, electron, gluon, lepton, hadron, neutrino, quarks so on and on Nothing wrong with what’s here, but there are better options available. Accurate concise thinking venation, goes down so deep humanistic concern, made bold imagination.

View all 5 comments. The Computer and the Rise of the Sciences of Complexity. I have found that reading older texts sometimes helps the layman or beginner understand highly abstract and difficult concepts in science, notably relativity and quantum mechanics. Fractals, Chaos, Power Laws: Classic Papers from Riemann to Einstein. I love this book to the point of sentimentality. Oct 08, Lodovico Mazzei rated it it was amazing.
