How to Teach Quantum Physics to Your Dog
In this international bestseller, Orzel explains the key theories of quantum physics, taking his dog Emmy's anarchic behaviour as a starting point. Could she use quantum tunnelling to get through the neighbour's fence? How about diffracting round a tree to chase squirrels? From quarks and gluons to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, this is a uniquely entertaining way to unlock the secrets of the universe.
'A fast-moving and fun introduction to some of the deepest mysteries of modern physics. And Emmy is a star.'
Dr Sean Carroll
'Charming. A light-hearted and amusing way for laypeople to learn about one of the strangest and most important aspects of modern science.'
William D. Phillips
'Elegantly approachable descriptions... with a refreshing emphasis on recent research. Highly satisfying.'
'It's hard to imagine a better way for the mathematically and scientifically challenged to grasp basic quantum physics.'
'Quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation and virtual particles are all explained with the author's characteristic light-hearted touch. Readers who've shied away from popular treatments of physics in the past may find his cheerful discussion a real treat.'
'Sure to become a classic.'
