Bell Nonlocality

£44.99

Valerio Scarani

9780198788416
Hardback
August 2019

Oxford Graduate Texts

Quantum technologies have seen a tremendous upsurge in recent years. Bell nonlocality, one of the most striking discoveries triggered by quantum theory, has been instrumental in this trend. It states that in some situations measurements of physical systems do not reveal pre-existing properties, but properties are created by the measurement itself.

The Astronomers' Magic Envelope: An Introduction to Astrophysics Emphasizing General Principles and Orders of Magnitude

£20.99

Prasenjit Saha, Paul A. Taylor

9780198816478
Paperback
June 2018

Working physicists, especially astrophysicists, value `back-of-the-envelope' calculations — short elegant computations or arguments that start from general principles and lead to interesting results. This book guides advanced undergraduates and lower graduates on how to understand astrophysics using general principles and concise calculations.
