Description: In the tradition of his best-selling Alice in Quantumland, a recasting of Lewis Carroll's Alice in the service of teaching quantum mechanics, The Wizard of Quarks takes L. Frank Baum's classic tale of a little girl from Kansas and transforms it into a description of the practically indescribable world of subatomic particles. Dorothy's encounters with the Witch of Mass, the Witch of Charge, the Witch of Color, and the Weak Witch will help readers grasp the maddeningly elusive concepts that support the foundations of modern physics. Whether he is describing Planck's Constant, superposition, tunneling, or quarks and leptons, Gilmore is a master at making the difficult concepts of subatomic particles comprehensible and entertaining.
