Inhaltsangabe: 'A whistle-stop and humbling tour of physics high points over the past century' Jerome Burne, FT magazine Today we live in the information age. Wherever we look it surrounds us, and with the help of ever more efficient devices, from the internet through to mobile phones, we are producing, exchanging and harnessing more than ever before. But information does far more than define our modern age - at a fundamental level it defines the material world itself, for it is through its mediating role that we gain all our knowledge, and everything derives its function, existence and meaning from it. In twenty-five short chapters, von Baeyer takes us from the birth of the concept of information and its basic language, the bit, through to the coal-face of contemporary physics and beyond relativity; black holes; randomness; abstraction - explaining why it has the power to become the most fundamental concept in physics - as fundamental as mass and energy.

Buchbeschreibung Phoenix (An Imprint of Orion Books), London, 2004. Soft Cover. Buchzustand: Very Good. Reprint. Whether TV shows or cell phone and internet traffic, whether encoded in the radio waves that fill the atmosphere or coursing through wires of copper and glass, information, in its electronic form, surrounds us. And equally copious to this is the realm of physical information, that which mediates between reality and our understanding of it. Our senses record and interpret it; our brains manipulate and process it; our genes pass it from one generation to the next; and the need to share it is an attribute common to every member of the animal kingdom.But what actually is information? Can it be analyzed and measured? Why, if information is such an essential ingredient of the world around us, is it not yet part of the vocabulary of physical science? In this exciting, enlightening, and extraordinary book, Hans Christian von Baeyer addresses these and many other questions, revealing how the concept of information can cast light on principles as diverse as thermodynamics in physics and heredity in biology. For, despite its shadowy, paradoxical, and subjective nature, this is a concept of unarguable importance and power, one that could soon become just as central to science as space, time, mass, or energy - if not more so.With a narrative marked out by its clarity and sheer readability, von Baeyer takes us from the roots of the theory through to the coal-face of modern physics and beyond, deftly unpicking the many strands that knit information so tightly into the fabric of the universe. Along the way, he illuminates topics from gaming theory and probability through to black holes, the history of Morse Code, the future of computing and the role of philosophy in contemporary physics - all whileunderlining this emergent and rapidly developing field as the key to a fundamental new scientific language. BOOK DETAILS:The contents are clean, tight and sound throughout. The card covers are clean and unmarked, with only minimal wear. The lettering on the spine is clear and bright. No creasing and shows only minor shelf-wear. No age-toned pages or other evidence of ageing or signs of previous ownership. A very good copy. 258pp. (incl. index). The unpacked weight of this book is approx. 268g. (Please note: books that weigh over 1kg. (1000g) when packed, will exceed the quoted postage rate to overseas destinations).
