The Dreams That Stuff Is Made of
The Most Astounding Papers of Quantum Physics--and How They Shook the Scientific World
Bestselling author and physicist Stephen Hawking now guides the lay-reader through the fascinating world of quantum physics. Quantum physics - or quantum mechanics as it is also called - completely shattered Newtonian laws and challenged scientists to think differently about matter and subatomic particles. With Hawking's insightful commentary, readers are led through the most important papers on quantum physics, including the scholarship of Niels Bohr, Max Planck, Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, Erwin Schrodinger, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Richard Feynman.
