The quantum universe by Anthony J. G Hey ( Book )
6 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in English and held by 924 libraries worldwide
The Quantum Universe is the first popular book to give a non-mathematical pictorial account of quantum physics, the foundation of our current understanding of nature. For so long the province of mathematicians and physicists alone, the beauty and significance of quantum mechanics has remained hidden to the nonspecialist. Yet its impact on technology has been enormous. The modern electronics industry with the silicon chip that has revolutionised so many aspects of modern life owes its existence to an understanding of the quantum nature of semiconductors. The text explains exactly what quantum mechanics is in a simple nonmathematical way, and is complemented throughout by many superb colour and black-and-white photographs illustrating the varied facets of quantum phenomena. The Quantum Universe will provide a fascinating and accessible introduction to one of the most important scientific disciplines of the twentieth century. Final-year students at school, general readers with an interest in science, and undergraduates in science subjects will all be able to enjoy and benefit from this novel exposition.
Einstein's mirror by Anthony J. G Hey ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 781 libraries worldwide
"The young Einstein was haunted by a strange thought: would his image appear in a mirror whilst he and the mirror were moving at the speed of light? His questions were resolved with the creation of the theory of special relativity. Einstein's Mirror is a book on relativity with a difference. Following the successful format of their earlier book, The Quantum Universe, the authors blend a simple, non-mathematical account of the underlying theory of special relativity and gravitation with a description of the way these theories have been triumphantly supported by experiment." "Final-year students at school, general readers with an interest in science and undergraduates in science subjects will all be able to enjoy and benefit from this novel exposition."--Jacket.
