Summary
"This book investigates the key frontiers in modern-day physics, exploring our Universe - from the particles inside an atom to the stars that make up a galaxy, from brain research to the latest advances in high-speed electronic research networks. Each of the nineteen self-contained chapters written by leading international experts in will fascinate scientists of all disciplines and anyone wanting to know more about the world of physics today."--Jacket
