Product Description
The double-slit experiment has been widely discussed since the beginning of quantum mechanics. Many popular science books use the experiment to illustrate the wave-particle duality of light and matter. According to Richard Feynman, the double-slit experiment contains the only mystery of quantum mechanics. After we have unveiled the mystery, we will be able to understand quantum mechanics. What is the mystery then? The mystery lies in understanding the counterintuitive experimental results. What do they imply for the nature of reality? How on earth does a single electron pass through two slits at the same time? Exactly what is an electron? There are already many possible pictures of quantum reality. From pilot wave and Brownian motion to many worlds and dynamical collapse, every interpretation claims that it gives the right answer. But which one is right? Or none of them is right? Obviously there is only one true picture of quantum reality. Can we find it now? It has been widely thought that the mystery of quantum mechanics can only be unveiled by future precise experiments. However, this may be not the case. This little book will show that a penetrating analysis can already lead us to the way out of the maze of quantum interpretations. In the end, the true picture of quantum reality will naturally appear, and it can also be understood by general readers. To our great surprise, quantum mechanics already tells the secret. It is that a single electron passes through two slits at the same time in a discontinuous and random way. Book & Thoughts Reviews: This is an ambitious work that reflects admirable grip, and distinctive take, on much of the contemporary philosophy of quantum mechanics literature. ---- Reviewer of Philosophy of Science The idea of using discontinuous motion as a realist interpretation of quantum mechanics is original. ---- Reviewer of Foundations of Physics Its very existence is at any rate, an excellent illustration of the extent to which physical data force us to depart from commonsense ideas when we try to depict reality “as it really is”. ---- Bernard d'Espagnat, Templeton Prize 2009 Laureate, author of Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and On Physics and Philosophy

Understanding Quantum Physics: An Advanced Guide for the Perplexed
by Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

Quantum physics is admittedly the most difficult subject to understand. Physicists, let alone students and laymen, are still puzzled by it today. As Richard Feynman once famously claimed, nobody understood quantum mechanics. The crux of the matter lies in the meaning of the mysterious wave function in the theory. An electron is represented by a wave function. But it remains unclear what physical state the mathematical wave function represents. Exactly what is an electron? Is it a spreading wave...

Understanding Gravity: Newton, Einstein, Verlinde?

Understanding Gravity: Newton, Einstein, Verlinde?
by Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

Gravity is a physical phenomenon by which objects are attracted to each other. Every time you jump, you experience gravity. It pulls you back down to the Earth. Although gravity is such a constant presence in our lives, its origin is still a deep mystery. Isaac Newton described gravity as a universal force that attracts every object that has mass. Albert Einstein thought gravity is a result of the curvature of spacetime. What will be the next theory closer to the truth?

God Does Play Dice with the Universe
by arima publishing

Science has made a mighty advance since it originated in ancient Greece more than 2500 years ago. Yet we still live in Plato's cave today; we think everything around us moves continuously, but continuous motion is a mere shadow of the real motion. This book will lead you to the exit of the cave along a logical and comprehensible path. After passing Zeno's arrow, Newton's inertia, Einstein's light, and Schrödinger's cat, you will reach the real quantum world, where every thing in the universe,...

Quantum, Relativity, Consciousness And Beyond: A Scientific Quest for Ultimate Reality
by Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

Notwithstanding the great advances in modern science, there are some deep, unexplained mysteries, and our current world view is still fragmented. On the one hand, the two pillars of modern physics, namely relativity and quantum theory, are not only incomplete respectively but also incompatible with each other. Moreover, they are difficult to understand and even incomprehensible. On the other hand, there is a deeper mystery concerning our most familiar phenomenon - consciousness. The...

String Theory Simplified: What is Theoretical Physics?

String Theory Simplified: What is Theoretical Physics?

This book provides a detailed look at the development, history, and current state of String Theory. However, unlike some books that are filled with equations and difficult math, the book is written in an easy to understand way and guides the reader through string theory. You are shown the equations (just so you know they exist and can see how difficult they are), but you are never asked to solve them.

We start with the easiest topics such as:
