Curt Suplee:
Physics in the 20th Century - used book

ISBN: 0810990849

ID: 3910774

We conventionally think of physics as the source of delights that are at best intellectual: austere, cold, abstract. Science writer Curt Suplee and his colleagues have produced a book that reveals the sensual side of physics. Suplee's text gives an overview of 20th-century physics; he balances chapters on atomic structure, quantum theory, and cosmology with ones on chaos, materials, and light. His writing is clear and nontechnical, giving a well-balanced roller-skate tour of an immense growth in scientific knowledge: "The world as it is now understood differs more dramatically from the Victorian view than the science of Galileo, Copernicus, and Newton differed from that of Aristotle." The true glory of the book, though, is visual. Physicists themselves often think in terms of images or devices rather than words or even equations, and Physics in the 20th Century truly conveys that. The illustrations are lush, abundant, and colorful. From the glowing mist of a planetary nebula and the mesmerizing webs of interference patterns to the spare beauty of a particle accelerator wave guide, they put the "physical" back into physics. This is an excellent choice as a gift for anyone interested in physics, from a bright 12-year-old to your local quantum mechanic. --Mary Ellen Curtin 20th century,astronomy and space science,astrophysics and space science,education and reference,history,modern (16th-21st centuries),physics,science and math,teen and young adult Astronomy & Space Science, Harry N.

1999, ISBN: 9780810990845

ID: 3380538

Now in paperback, this widely acclaimed book -- named one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 1999 -- documents the ways in which physicists have revolutionized modern life over the past 100 years. Curt Suplee explains the astonishing experiments and achievements of such innovators as Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schrodinger, and Richard Feynmann, and offers extraordinary illustrations that focus mainly on the remarkable images -- from the atomic to the cosmic scale -- made possible by the instruments of advanced physics. Also included are photographs of experimental equipment -- massive particle colliders are beautiful in their own right -- and pioneering inventions. This stunning volume is sponsored by the American Physical Society and the American Institute of Physics. Physics in the 20th Century Suplee, Curt, ABRAMS
