From the Publisher
"The Quantum Revolution can serve as a resource to guide students through the work that was done by scientists such as Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Pauli, Dirac, Schrodinger, and others….[E]specially recommended to those who are interested in researching the atomic theory, the development of nuclear weapons, and nuclear physics."
"This delightful volume should be on the shelf of just about every undergraduate library; hopefull, students will find it and give it a read. A well-constructed index is included. Recommended. General readers; lower- and upper-division undergraduates."
"There are appealing and relevant sidelights on the lives and relationships of the physicists and on the technologies that depend on our advances in understanding. The long lasting debates on the foundations and interpretations of quantum mechanics are discussed in deatil; the arguments of Einstein, Bohr, Schrodinger, von Neumann, Bohm, Bell, and many others; the problems of entanglement; and the possibility of nonlocality. For those who are interested, this discussion is an outstanding feature of the book. The time line, glossary, recommendations for further reading, and list of references are valuable additions."
"The book is designed for the reader who has an interest in quantum theory and its history. The text does not contain numerous mathematical formulas, which makes it easier for the nontechnical person to understand. …This book is recommended for public and college libraries."
