Fearful Symmetry: The Search for Beauty in Modern Physics by A. Zee,Roger Penrose

By A. Zee,Roger Penrose

The inspiration of symmetry has common manifestations and plenty of varied applications—from structure to arithmetic to technology. but, as twentieth-century physics has published, symmetry has a distinct, significant function in nature, person who is sometimes and enigmatically violated. Fearful Symmetry brings the magnificent discoveries of the juxtaposition of symmetry and asymmetry in modern physics inside of everyone's snatch. A. Zee, a individual physicist and skillful expositor, tells the interesting tale of ways modern theoretical physicists are following Einstein of their look for the sweetness and ease of Nature. lively by means of a feeling of reverence and whimsy, Fearful Symmetry describes the majestic sweep and accomplishments of twentieth-century physics—one of the best chapters within the highbrow heritage of humankind.
