Archimedes to Hawking

Laws of Science and the Great Minds Behind Them

Clifford Pickover

This marvelous volume takes the reader on a journey across the centuries as it explores eponymous physical laws--from Archimedes' Law of Buoyancy and Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion to Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and Hubble's Law of Cosmic Expansion--whose ramifications have profoundly altered our everyday lives and our understanding of the universe.
