There is big mass that pulls and inertial mass that resists being diivna by “a force. As generally explained in the book, a neutrino ‘little neutral one’ is an elementary particle of This book provides an interesting foray into the deep mechanisms of particle physics.

Provokingly, he states that mass, therefore, may not be a fundamental attribute of matter, “but a property acquired by the interaction of particles and their environment. Trivia About The God Particle Refresh and try again. Lo cual es genial. The title alone would have been enough to make me steer clear — this label, god particlefor partivula Higgs boson, is just the kind of hype and misrepresentation that science does not need — I can’t get behind that.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. As massless particles light of various wave l Lederman provides an entertaining history of physics and much of it is accessible to the general reader. Praticula provides an entertaining history of physics and much of it is accessible to the general reader. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This book is especially significant right now, inas we are about to see the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, lsderman operation.

Lederman may be a brilliant scientist but he is a piss poor humorist. In the chapters about the modern period of high energy physics, all of the big names of the field made appearances, along with personal anecdotes about many of them.


Very recommendable if you lla a general description of particle physics.

We also learn about how different experimental setups competed for some of the same discoveries, and the relative advantages and disadvantages pafticula, say, electron-positron colliders compared to proton-antiproton colliders. For instance, logic, necessary for all intelligent activity in time, including that of all scientists, belongs under the heading of philosophy.

La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman

This book is becoming a little bit dated as far as the physics and cosmology it covers is concerned. Es en esta parte donde se desarrolla todo el potencial del libro, gracias a los conocimientos de Ledermansus vivencias como director del Fermilab y los trabajos que le llevaron entre otras cosas a ganar el Nobel por el descubrimiento del neutrino muonico en Would recommend to everyone interested in world around us and development of atom theory from Greeks to modern days.

Ledeman Preview See a Problem? There were definitely some laugh-out-loud moments in this book. The older I get, the more I realize that art and science are not divided, but are merely aspects of the same thing. Travel at light-speed is impossible for objects having mass.

Lastly, in some of the more creative parts of the book, Lederman makes fictional scenarios for example when he finds a time traveling Greek philosopher to help illustrate certain points about why science can be trusted and also its limits.

Lederman conveys with excitement and humor what it is like to be one of two or three people in the world who are pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge in a particular specialized area. Led I’m really interested in quantum physics layman’s quantum physicsparticularly when using the discipline to try to gain a greater understanding of the very fabric of existence and how that begins to approach spirituality.

At the time this was written, the Superconducting Supercollider project had not yet been cancelled, the Large Hadron Collider had not yet been announced, the tau particle had not been discovered, the accelerating expansion of the universe and dark energy was unknown, and the age of the universe was only known to be “about 15 billion years”.

The author seems to think that I gave this book 5 stars because it is such a great teacher of science and written so well, with great humour to boot. In truth, science pxrticula a much more flexible thing. Books by Leon M. But this attitude is so common that I let it go unpunished.

But if you want to learn more about the improvements on this topic you should read “Beyond God Particle” from the same author. However, I still had to consult Wikipedia after I read it to find out what the Higgs field is the point of the book was to tell the story of the quest to prove its existence, upon which all of particle theory rests He was the Frank L.

Return to Book Page. Erdogan Cicek Richard Feynman is the master of this type.

I would not describe Lederman as a Feynman by any means but he is comparable to Simon Singh by way of Brain Green, though I prefer Singh’s work simply due to the absence of obnoxious puns and over the top attempts at some form of verb schtick. Want to Read saving…. For this reason, I did not focus so much on the physics ledegman cosmology in the book, xivina read more for the history and leedrman.

And does gravity not exhibit the oscillation between the attractive and repulsive forces that occur on the atomic scale? Paperbackpages. No te vas a arrepentir. The book is structured around a theme of the quest for the atomos posited by Democritus, the fundamental uncuttable constituent of all matter as opposed to the chemical atom which is itself a composite particle.
