wave-particle duality – superpositions – quantum tunneling
I’m not quite sure why I ever bought this book.
infinite-sum wavefunction – zero point energy – allowed states
And I’m definitely not sure why I EVER decided to read it.
quantum randomness – light polarization – the many worlds interpratation
But I did and I did and somehow kinda queerly and eerily I’m glad I did?
wavefunction collapse – decoherence – separate universes
‘Cause the author, Chad Orzel, makes quantum mechanics and theory almost understandable.
the quantum zeno effect – entangled photons – quantum teleportation
So would I do it again?
a/V> + b/H> and E = hf and 1s + 1/2s + 1/4s + 1/8s … = 2s
Not a chance.
It’s an interesting ride, but it was like wearing ill fitting jeans.
Didn’t you feel kinda smart while reading it, tho? Like even when just one piece of it made sense? 🙂 Did you try it out on Cutter and Tug?
I think bewildered is a better word for how I felt while I was reading it.
