The quantum tamers revealing our weird and wired future( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with a condensed history of classical and quantum physics to contextualize the current state of quantum science, this highly visual program takes viewers to the frontiers of quantum computation. Wave-particle duality, entanglement and superposition, the EPR Paradox, Schrödinger's Cat, the famous double-slit experiment, and the "noisy observer effect" flash by like road markers on this high-speed journey to the realm of quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography, and quantum computing. Stephen Hawking and 18 other quantum visionaries provide clear and insightful explanations in this clever and sophisticated introduction to an extremely complex subject, and exciting preview of our weird and wired future!"--Verso du conteneur
