Description

Short Review

“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” — Isaac Newton

Have you ever wondered how the historic physics papers that revolutionized science actually looked like? If your answer is yes than this book is for you — The Dreams that Stuff is Made From contains a collection of historic papers that revolutionized quantum mechanics. Original papers include the groundbreaking works of such giants of quantum mechanics as Paul Dirac, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schroedinger and many others.

“God does not play dice with the universe.” So said Albert Einstein in response to the first discoveries that launched quantum physics, as they suggested a random universe that seemed to violate the laws of common sense. This 20th-century scientific revolution completely shattered Newtonian laws replacing them with the seemingly magical world of probabilities, superpositions and entanglement. The Dreams that Stuff is Made From leads the brave reader through this world in the form of original papers of the great scientists of the mentioned era. The quantum revolutions of the 20th century are introduced and discussed in the beginning of the book by none other than Stephen Hawking — one of the most prominent theoretical cosmologists, who merged the world of the quanta and the general relativity in his research of black holes and singularities.
