Established seller since Particularly counterintuitive is the notion of entanglement, which has been explored for the past 30 years and posits an ubiquitous randomness capable of manifesting itself simultaneously in more than one place.
This is especially a problem, since the book itself doesn't try to cover many topics in any real detail. Quantum Chance, a delightful and concise exposition, does not avoid the deep logical difficulties of quantum physics, but instead gives the reader the insights needed to appreciate them.

This amazing 'non-locality' is more than just an abstract curiosity or paradox: it has entirely down-to-earth applications in cryptography, serving for example to protect financial information; it also has enabled the demonstration of 'quantum teleportation', whose infinite possibilities even science-fiction writers can scarcely imagine. This delightful and concise exposition does not avoid the deep logical difficulties of quantum physics, but gives the reader the insights needed to appreciate them.
From 'Bell's Theorem' to experiments in quantum entanglement, the reader will gain a solid understanding of one of the most fascinating areas of contemporary physics. Customer Reviews.

Then, i realize that it is going down the path of actual teaching in the way that teaching should have always been done. This is just brilliant teaching and i'm not saying it's brilliant writing or brilliant science because who knows what is truly real in the quantum realm. It has explained things, once you understand how Gisin is presenting his thoughts, in a way that no one else has ever done, for me, love it love it love it.

I think he should have introduced some background material before elaborating on the details of his Bell test. Early Bell discussions were for electron spins but for practical reasons then switched to light polarizations. I was expecting to understand traditional polarization experiments, so his time-bin test threw me for the first half of the book. Maybe others will have an easier time than I did especially since most of the reviews were very positive. He has few figures, and his Figure 5.
I would think that stressing the grand mystery of non-local correlations should go along with some possible mechanisms. January 18, - Published on Amazon.
If you love physics, but do not have a scientific background, you can get through this short work with some effort. It revolves largely around Bell's Game now referred to as Bell's Theorem to give it some dignity. But, and this saves the discrepancy, no information can be carried at such speeds. This is the quantum physics concept of entanglement. You do not have to have a mathematical background to grasp the main ideas of this work.
But if you do not have some experience with math you will probably get lost and give up. It took me about four hours over the course of a few days to grasp the math because of all the possibilities, probabilities, and "rules" of the game. During the past decade or so many books on quantum physics have been published that are aimed at the laymen. Most attempt to deal with the problem of uncertainty, which is at the root of quantum physics, and, for lack of a better term, certainty or determinism if you like , which is the foundation of classical physics.
This clash has been described as physics in crisis. When something happens that cannot be explained e. Later, when lightning is understood scientifically, the gods are released as the creators.
But the paranormal is still very much with us worldwide.
