Nomura Y., Poirier B., Terning J. Quantum Physics, Mini Black Holes, and the Multiverse: Debunking Common Misconceptions in Theoretical Physics
Springer International Publishing, Switzerland, 2018. — 210 p. — (Multiversal Journeys) — ISBN 3319417088.
There is a wide gap between the public understanding of scientific findings and the actual theories developed by scientists in the area of physical sciences. The gap is very noticeable for concepts in theoretical physics and cosmology primarily due to the level of complexity and highly mathematical nature of these theories. Meanwhile, there is a significant amount of misconceptions about theories involved in theoretical physics mainly due to the existence of pseudoscience among some members of the general public.
This book explores, explains, and debunks some common misconceptions about quantum physics, particle physics, space time, and multiverse cosmology. It seeks to separate science from pseudoscience. The material is based on a Multiversal Journey sconference at the Lawrence Hall of Science–Berkeley in 2015 with authors of this book as the speakers.
"Modern physics is rife with provocative and fascinating ideas, from quantum mechanics to the multiverse. But as interesting as these concepts are, they are also easy to understand. This book, written with deft hands by true experts in the field, helps to illuminate some of the most important and game-changing ideas in physics today."
