By Mark P. Silverman

jThis completely up-to-date and revised textual content features a number of well-written essays in keeping with Silvermans paintings on quite a lot of themes, together with: quantum mechanics, together with atomic and nuclear physics, electromagnetism and optics, gravity, thermodynamics, and the physics of fluids. proposing a private odyssey in physics, Silverman investigates tactics for which no visualizable mechanism will be given, or that appear to violate primary actual legislation (but do not). The discussions use little arithmetic, and an individual with a bit collage physics should be capable of learn the publication with excitement.

-Engagingly written -Easily comprehensible by means of either the overall reader and the professional physicist -Covers a range of topics from "hot" issues in modern physics to much less well known yet refined and fascinating matters in physics -Discusses genuine actual platforms whose habit provokes, surprises and demanding situations the mind's eye -This moment version is newly revised and updated
