Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right up! Welcome to Quantumland! Fall into an atom and dodge electrons! See the amazing Emperor think his clothes into existence! Dance with the Three Quark Brothers at the Particle MASSquerade! An you need is a sense of adventure-no mathematics required! Alice in Quantumland is Robert Gilmore's amazing fantasy ride through the landscape of quantum physics-the interrelated group of theories on the nature of subatomic particles that modern scientists use to, explain the physical universe. Through the allegory of Alice's adventures and encounters, Gilmore makes the essential features of the quantum world clear and accessible. It is a thrilling introduction to some essential, often difficult-to-grasp concepts about the world we inhabit. You've heard about Alice's adventures through the looking glass. Well, Alice is about to embark on another amazing journey. She's going to shrink again-to the size of a nuclear particle-but she's not going down the rabbit hole. She's headed for Quantumland. And what is Quantumland? Think of it as an intellectual amusement park smaller than an atom, where every ride, game, and attraction demonstrates a different aspect of quantum mechanics-the often baffling, always intriguing theoretical framework that seems to provide the most accurate explanations of the way things arc in the physical world. In this masterful blend of fantasy and science, Robert Gilmore uses the allegory of Alice's travels to make the uncertainty principle, Pauli's principle, high-energy particle physics, and other crucial parts of quantum theory accessible and exciting. Once in Quantumland, Alice experiences various quantum effects (at one point going backward in time and running into herself). She also meets a number of strange characters who help her (and you) understand the nature of the quantum world. There is: * the Uncertain Accountant, whose attempts to balance the books at the Heisenberg Energy Bank arc being flummoxed by energy fluctuations; * the State Agent, Who shows Alice how atoms can bc two places at once; * the Three Quark Brothers, who take Alice around the floor in one of the Castle Rutherford's famous Collider Dances; * the Emperor, whose conscious mind makes his new clothes real; and more. Cleverly conceived and written, and delightfully illustrated, Alice in Quantumland brings some crucial yet often elusive scientific concepts within reach of the everyday reader. You don't need to know much about mathematics to follow our heroine's escapades. There is only one equation in the entire book! All you need is a taste for intellectual adventure and healthy curiosity about the world around us.

Do you know... that black holes can affect time? that Stonehenge is a giant calendar? that the Oracle Bones of the North China Plain predict the phases of the moon? that the Pyramids are giant compasses? how Jonathan Swift knew that Mars had two moons when he wrote Gulliver's Travels? that the effects of black holes are described in the story of Alice in Wonderland? that an atomic reactor existed 2 billion years ago in Equatorial Africa? that an electron on the other side of the galaxy can deflect a billiard ball? that Schrödingers cat is both alive and dead? Derek York fathoms these and many other mysteries of time and space in In Search of Lost Time. A reflection of York's obsession with time and its measurement, the book discusses the mind-bending universe of the special and general theories of relativity, the ghostly world of quantum mechanics, and the unpredictable haunts of chaos. It explores the pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, and the South China plain; the universities of Cambridge, McGill, and Chicago; the Patent Office in Berne; and back to the Ethiopian desert on the banks of the Awash River. Companions to share and illuminate the path range from Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland to J.B. Priestley's Dangerous Corner. It also presents the father of master-spy Kim Philby in the Empty Quarter of Arabia, the fantasist Velikovsky in the clouds, and Newton, Darwin, Rutherford, Einstein and the great Earth scientists of this century who fathomed the depths of lost time and discovered the age of the Earth. Written in an engaging, nontechnical style, this book will delight and amaze all who encounter it.

A fantasy in the sense of Alice in Wonderland, but not for children.It's cock-and-bull like Tristram Shandy, but without the digressions.It's satire in the tradition of Gulliver's Travels, but the satire is on modern science.The humour is British, like the Goons or Monty Python.The protagonists are two young students, Phi and Psi, finding their way in life. In Book I, In Quest of Mu, they go in search, in search of the ancient Mu, a philosophical refugee from Athens to Upper Matta.Mu himself is on a philosophical quest to answer his guiding question, Why is there movement at all, rather than standstill?In Book II, The Way Back to Anaxaton, the main character turns out to be the mysterious Willy P., the power behind the scenes.Matta stands for 'mathematics', but there are no formulae, only a more or less playful, historical treatment of maths along with a couple of Greek symbols.The quantum mechanics is accurate, but blown up to fantastic proportions with fun-loving, unbridled literary licence. This makes it look superficially like sci-fi, but it's subtler.The philosophical strand is substantial, but presented narratively and playfully camouflaged. The presentation is tongue-in-cheek, so the reader constantly has to decide at each point whether it's serious sense or straight-faced nonsense. Usually it's both. It has some quasi-Platonic dialogue, and the whole is borne by philosophical questions subversively at work in the background. Its companion philosophical volume is A Question of Time: An Alternative Cast of Mind (2015).

In a world where anything can happen, Alice discovers that it does! Six-year-old Alice Sterling is the smartest little girl alive. Alice has already designed and built her own quantum computer, which she names Molly. But Alice has a problem-she has followed a mysterious man through a wormhole to another dimension and now she is trapped in a universe where anything can happen-with no way to get back home. Follow Alice and her robotic cat, A-II, through adventure after curious adventure, as they discover all the mysteries of the multiverse - from the inside out. From the halls of MIT to the walls of Atlantis, this is a journey without equal, as is Alice. Once you too arive in Limbo Land, you won't believe your eyes. From fractals to fuzzy-logic units, this volume is packed. This sci-fi spin on the original 'Alice in Wonderland' culminates in a game of quantum chess, where only one winner will take all. See if you can guess who. "Much to my disappointment, and overall disadvantage, I was born a very small child." Alice Sterling, Age 6

The ten lectures in memory of Daniel Thorner comprising this volume, were delivered in various cities in India over a period of sixteen years, from 1985 to 2001. Instituted after his death in 1974, and sponsored by the Indian Statistical Institute, this continuing lecture series reflects the breadth of Thorner s own range of interests: from themes in the social sciences to issues in the fields of public policy and human rights. Besides an introductory essay by Utsa Patnaik, the volume also includes a hitherto unpublished paper by Daniel Thorner, written in his student days.As a student, Daniel Thorner did not set out to become a specialist on India; nor did he consider himself an economist. Yet, paradoxically, this is how he is remembered in India. His intellectual career, which began as that of a historian, followed a logical and ever-widening path that led him from studying British economic and social relations with India, to researching the agrarian structure and economic development of India. Indeed, most of his publications in the 1950s and 60s could be so interpreted as to place him in the category of Indian economists .The late Alice Thorner, editor of this volume, studied, taught and wrote on the economic and social history of South Asia since 1940. She was co-author, with her husband Daniel Thorner, of Land and Labour in India (1962). In collaboration with Sujata Patel, she edited two volumes of essays Bombay: A Mosaic of Modern Culture and Bombay: A Metaphor for Modern India (1995).Reading this collection of essays helps to open our eyes to many facets of India s present and past, with some sombre thoughts for the future. It also explains why the only friends of India we now seem able to attract are second-generation NRIs flush with funds and nostalgia for the small town life their Mummies and Daddies inhabited, at least in their imagination.The Book Review
