Can two particles become inextricably linked, so that a change in one is instantly reflected in its counterpart, even if a universe separates them?. With Entanglement, Aczel covers a pretty tough topic – the bizarre behavior of particles that become inextricably linked together; what Einstein.

It is a history of the subject and the battles that have been fought about the meaning of quantum mechanics, many of which continue to this day. Plight of the Living Dead. It’s an important experiment, since it clearly demonstrates the inherent non-locality of quantum entanglement, without having to rely on Bell’s Theorem. The author, one of my Facebook friendsdied almost one year ago. The subject is motivated by a challenge by Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen about the problem with the consistency of physics being local and quantum mechanics.

Explanations of the actual experiments which supposedly proved this phenomenon lacked in details and lucidity. Apr 09, Kyle Hopkins rated it it was ok.
Still I was spellbound with what I did understand. The author also starts each chapter with a brief introduction to the life of each famous physicist whose contributions were accounted for in this book. University of California, Berkeley University of Oregon. Del resto, entangoement ha detto giustamente Feynman, nessuno ha mai veramente capito la meccanica quantistica.

There are, however, better books on the subject of quantum entanglement for readers who are more conversant with quantum mechanics, such as Nicolas Gisin’s Quantum Chance: That experiment receives a whole short chapter in Amir’s book.
The coverage of entanglement itself goes through interesting experiments, but the interesting results and what they mean, how to interpret them, gets lost in explaining the history and setup to the experiments, without even doing a worthwhile job of describing what each part does. Entanglement by Amir Aczel Entanglement’s early chapters provide some of the best explanations I have ever encountered of the entanglement phenomena as well as some other quantum mechanical concepts.

Amir Aczel – Wikipedia
I was interested in the subject matter but the book as it explains in the intro tries in multiple ways to explain entanglement. Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists who set out to complete Einstein’s work.
Fermat’s Last Theorem Paperback. This is a general treatment, with no mathematics, but one that I found a little more complex than that in Rosenblum and Kuttner’s “The Quantum Enigma”, and not as detailed as that given entanglemnet John Gribben in “In Search of Schroodingers Cat”.
