about

From Canada''s leading mind on contemporary physics, a daring new vision of the universe, and the scandals controversies, and questions that will illuminate our future.

Quantum physics is the golden child of modern science. It is the basis of our understanding of our world--atoms, radiation, elementary particles, basic forces and the behavior of materials. But for a century it has also been the problem child of science, plagued by intense disagreements between its inventors, strange paradoxes, and implications that seem like the stuff of fantasy.
     In Einstein''s Unfinished Revolution, theoretical physicist Lee Smolin takes us on a journey through the basics of quantum physics, introducing the stories of the experiments and figures that have transformed our understanding of the universe, before wrestling with the puzzles and conundrums that the quantum world presents. Along the way, he illuminates the existing theories that might solve these problems, guiding us towards a vision of the quantum that embraces common sense realism.
     Vibrant and accessible, Einstein''s Unfinished Revolution brings us a step closer to resolving one of the greatest scientific controversies of our age.
LEE SMOLIN, a theoretical physicist of global standing, has made influential contributions to the search for a unification of physics. He is a founding faculty member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario. His previous books include Time Reborn, The Trouble with Physics, and Three Roads to Quantum Grav...
