CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The Quantum Challenge, Second Edition is an engaging and thorough treatment of
the extraordinary phenomena of quantum mechanics, and of the enormous challenge
they present to our conception of the physical world. Traditionally, the thrill
of grappling with such issues is reserved for practicing scientists, while
physical science, mathematics, and engineering students are often isolated from
these inspiring questions. This book was written to remove this isolation.
Greenstein and Zajonc present the puzzles of quantum mechanics using vivid
references to contemporary experiments. The authors focus on the most striking
and conceptually significant quantum phenomena, together with a clear
theoretical treatment of each. The depth and extent of the challenge of quantum
mechanics becomes increasingly compelling as they move from the simplest
experiments involving single photons or particles, to the famous
Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen and Bell's Theorem, and then to macroscopic quantum
