This book explains the connection between Maxwells Demon and the role of. .ways of the quantum that will fascinate scientists and lay readers alike.

This book explains the connection between Maxwells Demon and the role of the observer and quantum eraser, showing that information science, thermodynamics and quantum physics are closely related. By focusing on entropy, information, and observation, the authors bring a unique perspective to this subject, providing an insight into the strange ways of the quantum that will fascinate scientists and lay readers alike. Robert J. Scully is a heavy equipment diesel mechanic living and working in Irving, Texas, where he is employed by the Caterpillar Corporation.

This book provides an introduction to the key concepts used in processing quantum information and reveals that quantum mechanics is a generalisation of classical probability theory. After a gentle introduction to the necessary mathematics the authors describe the geometry of quantum state spaces.

Eagerly awaited, the new edition of this successful text is now available in paperback. Maxwell's Demon is a character in an 1867 thought experiment by the Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, meant to raise questions about the second law of thermodynamics. This book explains the connection between Maxwell's Demon and the role of the observer and quantum eraser, showing that information science, thermodynamics and quantum physics are closely related.We often hear phrases like quantum weirdness and the strange world of the quantum. A fact that is not so widely appreciated is that quantum mechanics can (and does) shed light on problems such as the Maxwell Demon Paradox of thermodynamics, the seemingly spiritual nature of information, and even, perhaps, new insights into the existence of Mind! The common denominator of all this is the fact that information is a real physical quantity. Information is more than something just in our mind; it is the essence of, and in many ways more general than the concept of entropy. By focusing on entropy, information, and observation, the authors bring a unique perspective to this subject, and offer insight into the strange ways of the quantum which will not only fascinate scientists but lay persons as well. Key features of the new paperback edition: Explains the connection between Maxwell's Demon and the role of the observer Takes a completely new approach to quantum mechanics and quantum information theory which is of interest to students from undergraduate level onwards as well as researchers and lay persons Written by two authors who approach the topic from two different angles and combine both the scholar's and the layperson's perspective in a most interesting and enjoyable fashion Treats central concepts such as entropy, information and intelligence in a comprehensible and entertaining way Includes fresh biographical material on key researchers like Planck, Schrödinger, and others is presented at the beginning of each chapter Mathematical formulae have been removed and replaced by a history of famous Erwin Schrödinger Praise for the previous edition: "The Demon and the Quantum is accessible to a large spectrum of readers of PHYSICS TODAY; it is worthwhile reading?"

I loved it!

The Demon and the Quantum is one of the best explanations of the second law of thermodynamics and the entropy concept I have seen. It used simple examples and places things in historical context, which made it fun to read. Highly recommended!

It's not often that one finds quantum mechanics and entropy between the covers of the same book. The Scullys do an admirable job of showing how some of the most modern thinking and experimenting on quantum phenomena are related to classical problems in thermodynamics. Like so many books on science for the "general reader," this one is hardly easy going for the non-expert, but committed science buffs and physics students should find it interesting and enlightening. Much of the "hard-core" science is in lengthy "end notes." The main text still takes concentrated effort to follow, but it is leavened with a good many biographical snippets. If you want to know what quantum erasure is, this book is the place to look.

This is the best thermodynamics book I have ever read. Easy to follow, fun to read! Great stories, pictures, and diagrams help to place the science in historical context and make it very easy to remember. End notes present added detail in nice, easy to read fashion, making no assumption regarding previous knowledge of subject material--truly a book for the layman!! Hats off to the authors for a job well done!!! Highly recommend!!

This is the best-ever introductory text which gives a unique perspective at how thermodynamics and information science blend with quantum mechanics. The authors skillfully mix the physics ingredients, and spice it all up with great stories. Indeed, they prove Maxwell right in that "only when we begin to trace the development of ideas that <studying science> becomes fascinating". The book is clear and easy (and fun!) to read. At the same time it's deep and thought-provoking, and will appeal to philosophically-inclined readers. End notes present a great added value for physicists. This book will make an excellent present. I highly recommend it to all -- scientists and laypeople!

"The demon and the quantum" is an excellent book for those who wish to
understand the mysteries of quantum mechanics and thermodynamics. As
someone who has not studied physics in college, I found the book very
entertaining and highly readable. The book does not just explain the
concepts beautifully but also gives a nice background of the people behind
those ideas with interesting anecdotes. This book by Scully is a
delightful reading and gives a glimpse of things that are not normally
accessible to non-experts.
