Quantum high 6 44 Sep 16, Entanglement is the phenomenon in which two entities are inexorably linked no matter how far away from each other they may be. Wmir in the last few pages does this book actually talk about the fact that entanglement has been proven as reality, and virtually no space is given to discussing what it might actually mean.

There is a long history of disputes about how to do this, including as a major part of the long debate between Einstein and Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg and their allies. Return to Book Page. You would think that someone coming to a book on Entanglement would have read a few other accounts of quantum mechanics before and doesn’t need to re-read the familiar enyanglement starting from the Greeks through Planck and Bohr, Heisenberg and the rest of the early pioneers.

This is one of his best books. I thought there was a lot of excess although interestinginformation about the scientists that worked on quantum mechanics. Einstein was right, this stuff is spooky, but how very interesting! Mathematicshistory of mathematicshistory of science.


Aczel taught mathematics at universities in CaliforniaAlaskaMassachusettsItalyand Greece. Aczel Read by Entnaglement Leyva Category: Explanations of the actual experiments which supposedly proved this phenomenon lacked in details and lucidity. The authors covers various experiments in far too much detail to hold my attention.

Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists mair set out to complete Einstein’s work. Your Place in the Universe. The details of many of these experiments occupy the second half of Amir’s book. A reasonable introduction to quantum entanglement.

I didn’t truly read this in one day. Jan 11, Kristenyque rated it liked it. You Are the Universe.

Entanglement : The Greatest Mystery in Physics

Le spiegazioni sono di buon livello, molto chiare ma anche estremamente semplici. The coverage of entanglement itself goes through interesting experiments, but the interesting results and what they mean, how to interpret them, gets lost in explaining the history and setup to the experiments, without An okay introduction to entanglement, but get lost in the history and experimental setups.

Delle applicazioni, sempre volutamente, si parla di sfuggita nelle ultime pagine del libro, giusto per dare un qualche spunto per ulteriori letture: With accesible language and a highly entertaining tone, Amir Aczel shows us a world where the improbable—from unbreakable codes to teleportation—becomes possible.

Either way, it serves as another piece of the puzzle towards finding a theory of everything TOE. Only in the last entangleemnt pages does this book actually talk about the fact that entanglement has been proven as reality, and virtually no space is given to discussing what it mig Promising a discussion on one of the most fascinating topics in modern physics, this book disappoints.


Enatnglement the science side, I do not recall knowing that the Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle could be demonstrated not only in sub- nucleon particles like the photon, but even in neutrons and atoms themselves.

Goodreads aczl you keep track of books you want to read. I expected to get a bit more of understanding of entanglement out of this book, but I ended up feeling more baffled than before.

But in light of some additional reading suggested later by Rosie see belowhe lowered his final rating to just a 2. According to Einstein, quantum mechanics required entanglement, the idea that subatomic particles could become linked and that a change to one such particle would instantly be reflected in its counterpart, even if separated by a universe.
