Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Archimedes to Hawking takes the reader on a journey across the centuries as it
explores the eponymous physical laws--from Archimedes\' Law of Buoyancy and
Kepler\'s Laws of Planetary Motion to Heisenberg\'s Uncertainty Principle and
Hubble\'s Law of Cosmic Expansion--whose ramifications have profoundly altered
our everyday lives and our understanding of the universe.
Throughout this fascinating book, Clifford Pickover invites us to share in the
amazing adventures of brilliant, quirky, and passionate people after whom these
laws are named. These lawgivers turn out to be a fascinating, diverse, and
sometimes eccentric group of people. Many were extremely versatile
polymaths--human dynamos with a seemingly infinite supply of curiosity and
energy and who worked in many different areas in science. Others had
non-conventional educations and displayed their unusual talents from an early
age. Some experienced resistance to their ideas, causing significant personal
anguish. Pickover examines more than 40 great laws, providing brief and cogent
introductions to the science behind the laws as well as engaging biographies of
such scientists as Newton, Faraday, Ohm, Curie, and Planck. Throughout, he
includes fascinating, little-known tidbits relating to the law or lawgiver, and
he provides cross-references to other laws or equations mentioned in the book.
For several entries, he includes simple numerical examples and solved problems
so that readers can have a hands-on understanding of the application of the law.
A sweeping survey of scientific discovery as well as an intriguing portrait
gallery of some of the greatest minds in history, this superb volume will engage
everyone interested inscience and the physical world or in the dazzling
creativity of these brilliant thinkers.
