Riddled with jealousy, rivalry, missed opportunities and moments of genius, the history of the atom’s discovery is as bizarre, as capricious, and as weird as the atom itself. John Dalton gave us the first picture of the atom in the early 1800s. Almost 100 years later the young misfit New Zealander, Ernest Rutherford, showed the atom consisted mostly of space, and in doing so overturned centuries of classical science. It was a brilliant Dane, Neils Bohr, who made the next great leap - into the incredible world of quantum theory. Yet, he and a handful of other revolutionary young scientists weren't prepared for the shocks Nature had up her sleeve. This ‘insightful, compelling’ book (New Scientist) reveals the mind-bending discoveries that were destined to upset everything we thought we knew about reality and unleash a dangerous new force upon the world. Even today, as we peer deeper and deeper into the atom, it throws back as many questions at us as answers.

Would you like to make a trip to the Moon, or build your own nuclear reactor? Have you ever wanted to travel through time? Well, here's your chance! Whether you're interested in cloning budgies or building black holes, the "How to" guides will tell you everything you need to know. Thesehands-on guides give you step-by step instructions on how to build a Moon rocket, clone a sheep, split the atom or make a time machine. And on the way to becoming a time traveller or nuclear genius, you can learn about the brilliant scientists who first made these incredible discoveries - and aboutthe slightly less brilliant scientists who didn't.In How to Get to the Moon you can learn how to become a rocket scientist and Moon-walking astronaut. Learn how astronauts first got to the Moon in 1969, and about the recent discoveries that would make setting up a Moon base much easier. Find out how to make your own space suit, how to survive onthe Moon, and how to build a working rocket powered by liquid fuel.

This is a fascinating and popular account of the very large and the very small, from the universe as a whole to subatomic physics. It includes qualitative explanations of quantum mechanics and relativity, the big bang with inflation, the synthesis of elements, atoms, nuclei, subnuclear physics, quarks, leptons, and other elementary particles. It also gives an account of dark matter and dark energy. In summary, it provides and overview of what we know about the universe and what it is made of, and also what we don't know.

Anybody who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Niels Bohr's dictum bears witness to the bewildering impact of quantum theory, flying in the face of classical physics and dramatically transforming scientists' outlook on our relationship with the material world. In this book Paul Davies interviews eight physicists involved in debating and testing the theory, with radically different views of its significance.

This book presents the conceptual framework underlying the atomistic theory of matter, emphasizing those aspects that relate to current flow. This includes some of the most advanced concepts of non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics. No prior acquaintance with quantum mechanics is assumed. Chapter 1 provides a description of quantum transport in elementary terms accessible to a beginner. The book then works its way from hydrogen to nanostructures, with extensive coverage of current flow. The final chapter summarizes the equations for quantum transport with illustrative examples showing how conductors evolve from the atomic to the ohmic regime as they get larger. Many numerical examples are used to provide concrete illustrations and the corresponding Matlab codes can be downloaded from the web. Videostreamed lectures, keyed to specific sections of the book, are also available through the web. This book is primarily aimed at senior and graduate students.

This is a book of essays describing some of the strange systems that Silverman has investigated over the years, systems whose properties or behavior are surprising not only to the general reader but in some cases even to the seasoned physicist. A sort of personal odyssey in physics, the book uses little mathematics, and anyone with a little college physics will be able to read it with pleasure.
