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 PhysicsIts 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...

The Particles of the Universe

The universe is simply energy. Everything around us, including matter, is energy. A deep look into the mysteries of the subatomic world – the particles that make up the atom – provides answers to basic questions about how the universe works.

To solve the future of mankind’s energy needs we need to understand the basic building blocks of the universe, including the atom and its parts. By exploring the subatomic world we’ll find more answers to our questions about time,...

Quantum Mechanics: A Comprehensible Introduction for Students [New Edition with Readable Equations]
by Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

Quantum mechanics is full of mysteries and paradoxes. It has even been regarded as the most difficult subject to understand. The main reason is that unlike classical mechanics, quantum mechanics provides no visualizable spatial-temporal images for the physical processes it describes. It is well understood that classical mechanics describes the continuous motion of particles in space and time. In quantum mechanics, however, it is still unclear how microscopic particles such as electrons move in...

The Quantum Mystery (Kindle Single)

The Quantum Mystery (Kindle Single)

What Richard Feynman described as “the central mystery” of quantum physics is encapsulated in the experiment with two holes, also known as the double-slit experiment. In this experiment, a particle going through one of a pair of holes seems to be aware of what is going on at the other hole, and changes its behaviour according to whether that hole is open or closed. This is closely linked to the puzzle of entanglement, where one particle instantly reacts to what is happening to another...

Higgs & Bosons & Fermions, ...Oh, My! SUBATOMIC JOURNEY (Everyone's Guide Series Book 10)
by Real Science Publishing

This book explores the Micro-World of subatomic particles and forces, including the recently discovered Higgs boson.

The pursuit of nature’s smallest parts is one of mankind’s oldest quests, beginning at least 26 centuries ago. But, just in our lifetimes it seems we’ve finally “hit bottom.” Each step deeper into the Micro-World has revealed surprises, and expanded our understanding of nature on all size scales. At the bottom, we see a remarkable unity — nature is 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:

Hidden In Plain Sight 4: The uncertain universe

You never knew theoretical physics could be so simple!

It was once believed that the universe ran like clockwork. However, several revolutionary discoveries in the twentieth century revealed that there is a fundamental uncertainty at the heart of reality.

Take a tour of chaos theory, the uncertainty principle, and read the saga of the South Pole and the Multiverse. Discover how uncertainty is the only certainty.

You never knew theoretical physics could be so simple! In this exciting and significant book, Andrew Thomas clearly illustrates the simplicity which lies behind nature at its fundamental level. It is revealed how all unifications in physics have been based on incredibly simple ideas.

Using a logical approach, it is explained how the great 20th century theories of relativity and quantum mechanics share a common base, and how they can be linked using an idea so simple that anyone can...
