Simply Complexity
A Clear Guide to Complexity Theory
Neil Johnson - Oct 01, 2009 (first published in 2007)
Goodreads Rating
What do traffic jams, stock market crashes, and wars have in common? They are all explained using complexity, an unsolved puzzle that many researchers believe is the key to predicting – and ultimately solving—everything from terrorist attacks and pandemic viruses right down to rush hour traffic congestion.Complexity is considered by many to be the ...

Foundations Of Quantum Mechanics
Travis Norsen - Aug 17, 2017
Goodreads Rating
Authored by an acclaimed teacher of quantum physics and philosophy, this textbook pays special attention to the aspects that many courses sweep under the carpet. Traditional courses in quantum mechanics teach students how to use the quantum formalism to make calculations. But even the best students - indeed, especially the best students - emerge ra...

Emergent Multiverse Quantum Theory Accor
David Wallace - Apr 30, 2014 (first published in 2012)
Goodreads Rating
The Emergent Multiverse presents a striking new account of the "many worlds" approach to quantum theory. The point of science, it is generally accepted, is to tell us how the world works and what it is like. But quantum theory seems to fail to do this: taken literally as a theory of the world, it seems to make crazy claims: particles are in two pla...
