Searching for: "Louisa Gilder"
A BRILLIANTLY ORIGINAL and richly illuminating exploration of entanglement, the seemingly telepathic communication between two separated particles-one of the fundamental concepts of quantum physics. In 1935, in what would become the most cited of all of his papers, Albert Einstein showed that quantum mechanics predicted such a correlation, which he dubbed "spooky action at a distance." In that same year, Erwin Schrodinger christened this spooky correlation "entanglement." Yet its existence wasn't firmly established until 1964, in a groundbreaking paper by the Irish physicist John Bell. What happened during those years and what has happened since to refine the understanding of this...read more
