Using clear text and a thematic approach, Curt Suplee provides understandable explanations of a number of crucial concepts in modern physics that include quantum mechanics, chaos theory, fission, fusion, lasers, transistors and black holes. He explains the experiments and achievements of such innovators as Albert Einstein, Nils Bohr, Erwin Schrodinger and Richard Feynmann, and offers illustrations that focus mainly on the images - from the atomic to the cosmic scale - made possibly by the instruments of advanced physics. Also included are photographs of experimental equipment - such as massive particle colliders - and pioneering inventions. The volume is sponsored by the American Physical Society and the American Institute of Physics.
