Einstein's Dice and Schrödinger's Cat

Einstein's Dice and Schrödinger's Cat

How Two Great Minds Battled Quantum Randomness to Create A Unified Theory of Physics

Audiobook CD - 2015
Rate this:
Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrödinger were friends and comrades-in-arms against what they considered the most preposterous aspects of quantum physics: its indeterminacy. Einstein famously quipped that God does not play dice with the universe, and Schrödinger is equally well known for his thought experiment about the cat in the box who is neither alive nor dead. Both of these images arose from these two men's dissatisfaction with quantum weirdness. As World War II raged, both men struggled to produce a Grand Unified Theory that would describe in full the universe's ultimate design. Though they failed, much of modern physics remains focused on the search for such a theory. And while Einstein and Schrödinger tried and failed to explain everything in the cosmos through pure geometry, the development of string theory has, in its own quantum way, brought this idea back into vogue. As in so many things, even when he was wrong, Einstein couldn't help but be right.
