About this book

Introduction


"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."

                                                                                                 Sean M. Carroll

 

"The Multiversal book series is equally unique, providing book-length extensions of the lectures with enough additional depth for those who truly want to explore these fields, while also providing the kind of clarity that is appropriate for interested lay people to grasp the general principles involved. "  

                                                                                                Lawrence M. Krauss


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 presented in layperson-friendly language, followed by additional technical

sections which explain basic equations and principles. This feature is very attractive

to non-expert readers who nevertheless seek a deeper understanding of the theories,

and wish to explore beyond just the basic description.
