This is comprehensive account of quantum mechanics for popular science readers written by a respected physicist. Sam Treiman  internationally renowned for his work in particle physics  makes quantum mechanics accessible to nonspecialists. Combining mastery of the material with clear, elegant prose and infectious enthusiasm, he conveys the substance, methods and profound oddities of the field. Treiman begins with an overview of quantum mechanics. He sketches the early development of the field by Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schr dinger, and others and he makes clear how the quantum outlook flies in the face of common sense. As he explains, the quantum world is intrinsically probabilistic. For example, a particle is not in general in some particular place at a given instant, nor does it have a definite momentum. According to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, there is a limit to how well both location and momentum can be specified simultaneously. In addition, particles can move through barriers and otherwise move in regions of space that are forbidden by classical mechanics. If a particle has a choice of different paths, it pursues all of them at once. Particles display wavelike
About Sam B. Treiman
Sam Treiman was the Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics Emeritus at Princeton University. He cowrote "Current Algebra and Its Applications" (Princeton) with R. Jackiw and D. Gross, "Current Algebra and Anomalies" (Princeton) with R. Jackiw, B. Zumino, and E. Witten, and "Formal Theory of Scattering" with C. Grosjeans. He wrote numerous articles, mostly centered on the study of fundamental particles, for leading physics journals. Professor Treiman died in 1999.Details Book
