Q Is for Quantum


Product Description
Product Details


Written for the lay reader, this work on the complex world of particle physics by British astronomer Gribbin, the renowned author of such popular science books as Schrödinger's Kittens and the Search for Reality (LJ 5/1/95), is well written, informative, and highly accessible. Features include an introductory essay that puts the subject in historical perspective, clearly written entries, a brief bibliography, and time lines showing the birth dates of scientists and key dates in science and history. While physicists and other scientists will find it too basic for their purposes, this affordable one-volume book meets the needs of the general reader, filling a gap in the popular science literature. Recommended for general reference collections in public and academic libraries.‘Paul G. Haschak, Southeastern Louisiana Univ., Hammond

Natural History Astronomer Gribbin presents an overview of a hundred years of particle physics through a handy, accessible A-Z dictionary of definitions and identifications.
Science News An exhaustive timeline at the book's end charts progress over the past one hundred years in both a scientific and historical context.
