  Quantum theory is so shocking that Einstein could not bring himself to accept it. It is so important that it provides the fundamental underpinning of all modern sciences. Without it, we'd have no computers, no science of molecular biology, no understanding of DNA, no genetic Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction.   In Search of Schrodinger's Cat walks the reader through the development of quantum mechanics starting in the early 's and up to today.

In Search of Schrodinger's Cat tells the complete story of quantum mechanics, a truth stranger than any fiction. John Gribbin takes us step by step into an ever more bizarre and fascinating place, requiring only that we approach it with an open mind. Gribben's heroic efforts to explicate quantum physics abide in a halfway house: good for those exposed to the issues, somewhat dense and dessicated for the uninitiated. He desperately wants us to understand Planck's constant, Avrogado's number, and Schrodinger's cat&#;the famous feline caught between life and death. (The cat in a box is either alive or dead depending on whether or not a.
