The road to reality a complete guide to the laws of the universe

This guide to the universe aims to provide a comprehensive account of our present understanding of the physical universe, and the essentials of its underlying mathematical theory. It attempts to convey an overall understanding--a feeling for the deep beauty and philosophical connotations of the subject, as well as of its intricate logical interconnections. While a work of this nature is challenging, no particular mathematical knowledge is assumed, the early chapters providing the essential background for the physical theories described in the remainder of the book. There is also enough descriptive material to carry the less mathematically inclined reader through, as well as some 450-500 figures. The book counters the common complaint that cutting-edge science is fundamentally inaccessible.

  • "Il libro abbraccia tre millenni di storia delle scienze, non tralasciando nessun campo disciplinare: dalle scoperte matematiche dei pitagorici alla fisica quantistica e alla teoria delle stringhe, passando per le rivoluzioni della cosmologia e della fisica, Penrose ci guida attraverso l'universo parallelo della conoscenza che l'uomo si è progressivamente fatto dello spazio-tempo in cui evolve incessantemente, evidenziando l'armonia tra i fenomeni naturali e la matematica che li interpreta. Una scrittura affabile, a volte ironica, uno stile divulgativo talmente accattivante da attrarre milioni di lettori nel mondo: un veicolo indispensabile per un viaggio esaltante nei misteri della natura, dalle realtà microfisiche a quelle macroscopiche, dai quark ai buchi neri, avanti e indietro nel tempo, con il rigore di uno scienziato e la capacità espositiva di un affabulatore."

  • "Roger Penrose, one of the most accomplished scientists of our time, presents the only comprehensive and comprehensible account of the physics of the universe. From the very first attempts by the Greeks to grapple with the complexities of our known world to the latest application of infinity in physics, The Road to Reality carefully explores the movement of the smallest atomic particles and reaches into the vastness of intergalactic space. Here, Penrose examines the mathematical foundations of the physical universe, exposing the underlying beauty of physics and giving us one the most important works in modern science writing."
