What Makes Nature Tick? by Roger G. Newton

Book Description

The physical sciences are not obscure, nor are the phenomena they explain. We see the wonders of nature and the symmetry beneath, but these are often framed in strange symbols and concepts. Roger Newton's account of how physicists understand the world allows novices to explore both the mysteries of the universe and the beauty of the science that gives shape to the unseeable. This text contains discussions of solitons and superconductors, quarks and strings, phase space, tachyons, time, chaos, and indeterminacy, as well as the investigations that have led to their elucidation. Newton shows us how physicists formulate the questions - a process in which intuition, imagination and aesthetics have a surprisingly powerful influence.
