Physicists around the world have pointed to the concept of "quantization of the universe," where all matter in space is made up of quanta. The quantum universe also contains profound philosophical significance. This book discusses the nature of the world from a quantum perspective, deduces the content of extremely difficult cutting-edge physics into formulas one by one, and puts forward profound philosophical propositions to explain the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything in the world.
Through the interesting stories about the foundation of modern physics, the constitution of matter, and computers in this book, you can see the vivid world view presented by modern quantum physics, which is not confined to textbooks, and experience the joy of the mystery of life that lies deep in the author's heart. May readers enjoy the universe, physics and life while reading, thinking and exploring. The illustrations in the book were drawn by the author himself.
The book "Quantization: How Quantum Can Change the World" has been viewed 150,000 times in the series of HORIZON, a science professional online magazine of the Korean Advanced Academy of Sciences. Made the best list of Korean Science categories!
