Release Notes
The essays in this book are based on researches the author has undertaken on a
wide range of topics, some using equipment no more elaborate than what one can
find in an ordinary kitchen, others making elegant use of sophisticated
experimental apparatus. Presenting a personal odyssey in physics, Silverman
investigates processes for which no visualizable mechanism can be given, or that
seem to violate fundamental physical laws (but do not), or that appear to be
well understood but turn out to be subtly devious. Written in an engagingly
personal style, the essays will be of interest to students of physics and
related disciplines as well as professional physicists. Though they deal with
subtle concepts, the discussions use little mathematics, and anyone with a
little college physics will be able to read the book with pleasure.Silverman\'s
researches deal with in quantum mechanics, atomic and nuclear physics,
electromagnetism and optics, gravity, thermodynamics, and the physics of fluids,
and these essays address .such questions as: How does one know that atomic
electrons move? Would an \"anti-atom\" fall upward? How is it possible for
randomly emitted particles to arrive at a detector preferentially in pairs? Can
one influence electrons in London by not watching them in New York? Can a
particle be influenced by a magnetic field through which it does not pass? A
basketball is not changed by turning it once around its axis, but what about an
electron? Can more light reflect from a surface than is incident upon it? \"A
Universe of Atoms\" is the second edition of Silverman\'s \"And Yet It Moves\"; each
essay in the earlier collection has been revised and updated, and some new
essays on the uncommon physics of common objects have been added.
