Decoding Reality: The Universe as Quantum Information

Vlatko Vedral

In Decoding Reality, Vlatko Vedral bargains a mind-stretching examine the private questions on the universe--where every little thing comes from, why issues are as they're, what every thing is.

the main primary definition of fact isn't subject or strength, he writes, yet information--and it's the processing of knowledge that lies on the root of all actual, organic, monetary, and social phenomena. This view permits Vedral to handle a number of likely unrelated questions: Why does DNA bind love it does? what's the excellent vitamin for sturdiness? How do you are making your first million money? we will unify throughout the certainty that every thing includes bits of data, he writes, although that increases the query of the place those bits come from. to discover the reply, he's taking us on a guided travel in the course of the strange realm of quantum physics. At this sub-sub-subatomic point, we discover things like the interplay of separated quantum particles--what Einstein referred to as "spooky motion at a distance." in reality, Vedral notes, contemporary proof means that quantum weirdness, as soon as considered constrained to the tiniest scale, may very well succeed in into the macro global and make teleportation a true chance. it's in quantum physics, he writes, that we actually can find the solution to the last word query of existence, the universe, and every thing.

Vlatko Vedral is without doubt one of the key researchers in quantum technology. during this ebook, he deals a mind-bending account of this modern box.
