La realta non e come ci appare: La struttura elementare delle cose by Carlo Rovelli

Tempo, spazio e materia appaiono generati da un pullulare di eventi quantistici elementari. Comprendere questa tessitura profonda della realta e l’obiettivo della ricerca in gravita quantistica, la sfida della scienza contemporanea dove tutto il nostro sapere sulla natura viene rimesso in questione. Carlo Rovelli, uno dei principali protagonisti di questa avventura, conduce il lettore al cuore dell’indagine in modo semplice e avvincente. Racconta come sia cambiata la nostra immagine del mondo dall’Antichita alle scoperte piu recenti: l’evaporazione dei buchi neri, l’Universo prima del big bang, la struttura granulare dello spazio, il ruolo dell’informazione e l’assenza del tempo in fisica fondamentale. L’autore disegna un vasto affresco della visione fisica del mondo, chiarisce il contenuto di teorie come la relativita generale e la meccanica quantistica, ci porta al bordo del sapere attuale e offre una versione originale e articolata delle principali questioni oggi aperte. Soprattutto, comunica il fascino di questa ricerca, la passione che la anima e la bellezza della nuova prospettiva sul mondo che la scienza svela ai nostri occhi.

Reality Is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity By Carlo Rovelli

Rovelli is a charming, thought-provoking tour guide' Manjit Kumar Prospect.

Reality Is Not What It Seems

Presenting a coherent picture without losing your readers is a dilemma that scientists, especially those working in math-heavy fields, face when they write books for the general public. Rovelli starts at the beginning…not the Big Bang, but ancient Greece. The first half of the book traces the evolution of thinking about the nature of reality, from Democritus to Newton to Einstein. Quantum gravity does this in a profound manner, and as Rovelli moves into the meat of this theory, things get more interesting and more than a little mind-blowing. Quantum gravity proposes a great unity to the universe.

Reality Is Not As It Seems

Less than 80 pages long, it became one of the fastest-selling science books ever, and has now sold a million copies worldwide. Reality Is Not What It Seems — a deeper, more intellectually challenging meditation — outlines for the general reader some of the key developments in physics from the ancient Greek philosophers and the Roman poet Lucretius to the present day. The laws of physics — gravity, energy, motion — underpin those of chemistry, astrophysics and meteorology combined. So an understanding of the world requires some grasp of physics. This book aims to make that grasp easier for the layperson. It should be noted, however, that Reality first came out in Italy in before Seven Lessons , so, with this edition translated into English by Simon Carnell and Erica Segre, we are getting Rovelli in reverse order of publication. No matter.
