The Origins of the Laws of Nature

Peter Atkins

  • Exposes the beautiful simplicity at the heart of the processes of our complicated universe
  • Looks at conservation laws, and lesser laws, exploring the basic ideas of classical and quantum mechanics and the nature of light, time, and temperature
  • Reflects on why mathematics, the language in which these laws of nature are expressed, should work
