About The Book
Eagerly awaited, the new edition of this successful text is now available in paperback. Maxwell’s Demon is a character in an 1867 thought experiment by the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, meant to raise questions about the second law of thermodynamics. This book explains the connection between Maxwell’s Demon and the role of the observer and quantum eraser, showing that information science, thermodynamics and quantum physics are closely related.
We often hear phrases like quantum weirdness and the strange world of the quantum. A fact that is not so widely appreciated is that quantum mechanics can (and does) shed light on problems such as the Maxwell Demon Paradox of thermodynamics, the seemingly spiritual nature of information, and even, perhaps, new insights into the existence of Mind! The common denominator of all this is the fact that information is a real physical quantity. Information is more than something just in our mind; it is the essence of, and in many ways more general than the concept of entropy. By focusing on entropy, information, and observation, the authors bring a unique perspective to this subject, and offer insight into the strange ways of the quantum which will not only fascinate scientists but lay persons as well.
Key features of the new paperback edition:
Explains the connection between Maxwell’s Demon and the role of the observer
Takes a completely new approach to quantum mechanics and quantum information theory which is of interest to students from undergraduate level onwards as well as researchers and lay persons
Written by two authors who approach the topic from two different angles and combine both the scholar’s and the layperson’s perspective in a most interesting and enjoyable fashion
Treats central concepts such as entropy, information and intelligence in a comprehensible and entertaining way
Includes fresh biographical material on key researchers like Planck, Schr?dinger, and others is presented at the beginning of each chapter
Mathematical formulae have been removed and replaced by a history of famous Erwin Schr?dinger
Praise for the previous edition:
-The Demon and the Quantum is accessible to a large spectrum of readers of PHYSICS TODAY; it is worthwhile reading?- Physics Today
