The New Age of Physics
John M. Charap

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"In this book, a distinguished scientist gives an inside view of the advances of the last century and those that will happen in the next. It is a joy to read. The story is interesting, and John Charap knows how to tell it."--Mark Kidger, author of Star of Bethlehem: An Astronomer's View

"John Charap introduces the reader to the wonderfully broad range of topics of active research in physics. This book will be inspiring and instructive for students who might be persuaded to look more deeply into physics. . . . Charap enlivens his text with charming anecdotal illustrations. My favorite is the use of a croissant as an example of classical chaos."--P.J.E. Peebles, author of Principles of Physical Cosmology and Quantum Mechanics
