Publisher: Learning Development Institute
Number of pages: 157

Description:
This book is devoted to the second great scientific revolution of the last century, the development of Quantum Mechanics as the necessary replacement of Newtonian dynamics in dealing with the motion of the ultimate constituents of matter - particles like electrons and protons, which may carry electric charges and interact with each other through the fields they produce.
