An Allegory of Quantum Physics.

Description In this cleverly conceived book, physicist Robert Gilmore makes accessible some complex concepts in quantum mechanics by sending Alice to Quantumland-a whole new Wonderland, smaller than an atom, where each attraction demonstrates a different aspect of quantum theory.


Alice unusual encounters, enhanced by illustrations by Gilmore himself, make the Uncertainty Principle, wave functions, the Pauli Principle, and other elusive concepts easier to grasp.

Alice in Quantumland : An Allegory of Quantum Physics

Think of it as an intellectual amusement park smaller than an atom, where every ride, game, and attraction demonstrates a different allice of quantum mechanics – the often baffling, always intriguing theoretical framework that seems to provide the most accurate explanations of the way things are in the physical world. In this masterful blend of fantasy and science, Robert Gilmore uses the allegory of Alice’s travels to make the uncertainty principle, Pauli’s principle, quantumlanf particle physics, and other crucial parts of quantum theory accessible and exciting.
