Entanglement has ratings and 62 reviews. Jason said: A decent book on Entanglement. Suffers from my pet peeve in popular science books — which is. Can two particles become inextricably linked, so that a change in one is instantly reflected in its counterpart, even if a universe separates them?. With Entanglement, Aczel covers a pretty tough topic – the bizarre behavior of particles that become inextricably linked together; what Einstein.

I have difficulty in assessing how understandable this all might be to a lay reader.

And the level of the technical detail is rather uneven. Want to Read saving…. However scientific flow was frequently disrupted by lengthy life stories of Physicists. Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists who set out to complete Einstein’s work.

Okay, I feel better for that.

Entanglement : the greatest mystery in physics / Amir D. Aczel – Details – Trove

Inspired by Your Browsing History. Everything All at Once. You would think that someone coming to a book on Entanglement would have read a few other accounts of quantum mechanics before and doesn’t need to re-read the familiar history starting from the Greeks through Planck and Bohr, Heisenberg and the rest of the early pioneers.

Is this feature helpful? Definitely not a book that gets into the math or hard physics but is readable and intuitive given the subject matter.

It starts out with the physical landscape before the discovery of quantum mechanics- basically the enatnglement opinions about light. Or that someone who wants an introduction to quantum mechanics would no A decent book on Entanglement. The author also starts each chapter with a brief introduction to the life of each famous physicist whose contributions were accounted for in this boo This is an excellent account of the formulation and evolution of quantum mechanics over the span of years.


ENTANGLEMENT: The Greatest Mystery in Physics

This is one of his best books. The Story of CERN and ehtanglement Large Hadron Collider”–which is about the search for the mysterious Higgs boson, the so-called “God particle,” dark matter, dark energy, the mystery of antimatter, Supersymmetry, and hidden dimensions of spacetime. Several years later Aczel earned a Ph.

However, this concept violates the theory of special relativity, since communication between two places cannot occur faster than the speed of light.

He wrote “Entanglement is not one but rather the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics. Open Preview See a Problem?

Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity Paperback. This among other quantum phenomena, left Einstein scratching his head. Entanglement’s early chapters provide some of the best explanations I have ever encountered of entanglfment entanglement phenomena as well as some other quantum mechanical concepts. Explanations of sczel actual experiments which supposedly proved this phenomenon lacked in details and entanglemeent.

Gisin led a group that performed a key experiment that verified the nonlocal character of quantum entanglement. I first came across the bizarre quantum phenomenon known as “Entanglement” while reading a book called The Large, the Small and the Human Mind by Roger Penrose, then I lost it at some point.

Quantum Entanglement, Science’s Strangest Phenomenon. I got it out of the Seattle Public Library.


When Aczel was 21, he studied at the University of California, Berkeley. Del resto, come ha detto giustamente Feynman, nessuno ha mai veramente capito la meccanica quantistica. You can tell that the author becomes muddled in his thinking as he searches for other explanations based on the results of the latest research into the topic. Albert Einstein’s dntanglement suggested it was possible, but it was too bizarre, and too contrary to how we then understood space and time, for him to prove.

Still I was spellbound with what I did understand. When he was ten, Aczel’s father taught his son how to steer a ship and navigate. He begins by explaining that “entanglement” occurs when two subatomic particles are somehow connected—or “entangled”—with one another, so that when something happens to one particle, the same thing simultaneously happens to the other particle, even if it’s miles away.

Aczel explores how a Star Trek —like teleportation may be possible via entanglement however, a particle’s quantum state, not the entire particle, is teleported to its matethough perhaps at the expense of demonstrating entanglement’s more real-world applications to cryptography.

I would recommend this book to someone who is seriously interested in the strange underpinnings of quantum mechanics. This book provides a very personal account, gained from interviews with the participants.
