As Kenneth W. Ford shows us in qThe Quantum World, q the laws governing the very small and the very swift defy common sense and stretch our minds to the limit. Drawing on a deep familiarity with the discoveries of the twentieth century, Ford gives an appealing account of quantum physics that will help the serious reader make sense of a science that, for all its successes, remains mysterious. In order to make the book even more suitable for classroom use, the author, assisted by Diane Goldstein, has included a new section of Quantum Questions at the back of the book. A separate answer manual to these 300+ questions is available; visit qThe Quantum Worldq website for ordering information. There is also a cloth edition of this book, which does not include the qQuantum Questionsq included in this paperback edition.Tevatron at Fermi lab Chicago Toledo Indianapolis Figure 6.
