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.

But the effort is rather more than it needs to be, I feel. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? And the level of the technical detail is rather uneven. An elegant and simple account of scientific creativity in action. If entangelment are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?

This early eentanglement occupies the first half of the book, so that readers who’re already familiar with the history may become impatient to get to the more recent “good stuff”.


The River of Consciousness.

The book then gets into the subject for which it is titled which is entanglement. Entanglement is a very quick read and worth the time.

The reality is more bizarre than what even the best mad scientists can come up with. About Entanglement Can two particles become inextricably linked, so that a change in one acsel instantly reflected in its counterpart, even if a universe separates them? Obviously, this is quite a peculiar phenomenon, and it sorely perplexed Einstein.

Sconsigliato ai seguaci del aczle. A great book on a very bizarre fact of quantum physics. Sep 24, Minutes Buy.

Refresh and try again. I have difficulty in assessing how understandable this all might be to a lay reader. The Hilbert space H allows the physicist to qczel vectors, that is, mathematical entities that have both a magnitude and a direction: ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics.

Amir, like the fine science writer he was, covered a diversity of topics well — including my favorite, mathematics.

However, later sections of the book get bogged down in minutiae. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Thinking Like a Mountain. I got it out of the Seattle Public Library. This is an excellent account of the formulation and evolution of quantum mechanics over the span of years.


When Aczel was 21, he studied at the University of California, Berkeley. The second half is interesting, including both theoretical work like Bell’s theorem and the experimental tests of it. See and discover other items: Quantum entanglement is a qczel subject indeed. It introduces many of the major characters in the history of quantum mechanics and primarily focuses on the battle between Bohr and Einstein about whether physics is a local phenomenon.

Aczel taught mathematics at universities in CaliforniaAlaskaMassachusettsItalyand Greece. Write a customer review. Promising a discussion on one of the most fascinating topics in modern physics, this book disappoints. Like all books Amir wrote himself, Entanglement is at an elementary level, intended for general readers.
