Archimedes to Hawking: Laws of Science and the Great Minds behind Them

Synopsis

Because the laws of nature provide a framework in which to explore the nature of reality and because laws allow scientists to make predictions about the universe, the discoveries of the laws are among humanity's greatest poetic achievements. Written in an original and clear manner, Cliff Pickover's newest book is a compendium of biographical sketches of all of our significant scientific laws and their discoverers. Each main entry comes in two parts: the eponymous law of nature (with formula) and an explanation for a broad audience followed by a biography of the scientist after whom the law is named.
