By Jeremy Bernstein

This booklet of essays in 4 components, was once written over a decade and whole of surprises for the breadth and diversity of its subject material. the 1st half is set the principles of the quantum idea which displays the author's many conversations with the past due John Bell who persuaded him that there's nonetheless no passable interpretation of the idea. the second one half offers with nuclear guns. one of many essays issues the production of the trendy gasoline centrifuge which used to be performed by way of German prisoners of battle within the Soviet Union. The proliferation of those centrifuges was once one of many matters within the unfold of nuclear guns. The 3rd part bargains with monetary engineering with a profile of Louis Bachelier, the French mathematician who created it firstly of the 20 th century. the ultimate part offers with the Higgs boson and the way it's used for producing mass. It incorporates a precise article of ways this mechanism works.
