Something deeply hidden : quantum worlds and the emergence of spacetime
by Carroll, Sean M., 1966- (Author)
"Caltech physicist and New York Times bestselling author Sean Carroll shows that there are multiple copies of you. And everyone else. Really. Something Deeply Hidden begins with the news that physics is in a crisis. Quantum mechanics underlies all of modern physics but major gaps in the theory have... Full description
