Quantum: Einstein, Bohr y el gran debate sobre la naturaleza de la realidad

Overview

Entertaining and accessible, this book narrates the conflict between two of the greatest intellectuals of the 20th century, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. After Max Planck discovered that electromagnetic radiation and the energy of light are transmitted in small packets called quanta in 1900, Bohr applied the idea to electrons, leading to the development of quantum mechanics and to the explanation of previously unexplainable experimental results. Einstein rejected Bohr's theory, and their ...

Overview

Entertaining and accessible, this book narrates the conflict between two of the greatest intellectuals of the 20th century, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. After Max Planck discovered that electromagnetic radiation and the energy of light are transmitted in small packets called quanta in 1900, Bohr applied the idea to electrons, leading to the development of quantum mechanics and to the explanation of previously unexplainable experimental results. Einstein rejected Bohr's theory, and their conflict culminated at the 1927 Solway conference. This comprehensive study of years of discovery and debate is emotionally charged, exploring friendships and rivalries that survived two world wars.

 

Ameno y asequible, este libro relata el conflicto entre dos de los grandes intelectuales del siglo XX, Albert Einstein y Niels Bohr. Después del descubrimiento de Max Planck en 1900 que la radiación electromagnética y la energía de luz se transmiten en pequeños paquetes llamados cuantos, Bohr aplicó la idea a los electrones, lo cual llevó al desarrollo de la mecánica cuántica y a la explicación de resultados experimentales previamente inexplicables. Einstein rechazó la teoría de Bohr y el conflicto entre los dos culminó en la conferencia de Solway en 1927. Este estudio exhaustivo sobre años de descubrimiento y debate está emocionalmente cargado, explorando amistades y rivalidades que sobrevivieron dos guerras mundiales.
