About this title

Synopsis:

Alice in Wonderland leaps into the twenty-first century of quantum paradoxes and chaotic attractors. In a series of engaging stories several of the world's leading science writers speculate on what would happen if the young Alice were to enter the world of quarks, fractals, chaos theory, Heisenberg's uncertainty, the very center of the universe and theories of everything. The book also contains a glossary, very accessible to the lay reader, of definitions and explanations of the curious quantum world.

From the Publisher:

With the help of a most curious cat, Alice leapfrogs from Victorian England into a series of parallel worlds where she encounters an entire magic box of bizarre characters: everything from strange attractors and thinking electrons to talking quantum paradoxes.

Observe the cat having an unpleasant encounter with Professor Schrödinger before he learns to jump universes at the blink of an eye. Join in Alice's adventures in Alice and the Quantum Cat and travel with her in this new wonderland, on everything from a steam train in Ireland to a flying taxi cab crossing the Hudson River; from San Francisco's Pier 9 to the very center of the universe. Learn more and more about the curious world of 21st century science.

Each chapter of this captivating adventure has been written by a leading science popularizer including Fred Alan Wolf, Amit Goswami, F. David Peat, Nick Herbert, Danah Zohar, Beverly Rubik, and Peter Russell.
