The Demon and the Quantum Robert J. Scully ; Marlan O. Scully From the Pythagorean Mystics to Maxwell's Demon and Quantum Mystery

"Robert Scully, a diesel mechanic, enjoys tormenting scientists with demonic questions. Thereby he has produced a brilliant hiker s guide to the galaxy of atomic physics. He offers fresh insights into quantum theory, especially its profound interplay with information science, delivered with startling clarity and exuberant verve. For hikers eager to trot onward, endnotes by his father Marlan, a distinguished physicist, provide spirited but docile mathematical horses." Dudley Herschbach, Nobel Laureate, Chemistry, Harvard University

"I ve read The Demon and the Quantum with interest. The book is impressive, with much careful history and personal stories of early scientists. The main scientific message is that the marriage of laser physics (i.e., the ammonia beam maser) and quantum mechanics (i.e., the quantum eraser) resolves the Maxwell demon paradox. This is a deep insight worthy of contemplation." Charles Townes, Nobel Laureate, Physics, Berkeley

"Packed with deep thought, full of fascinating history, The Demon and the Quantum rips the veil from the deepest mysteries of the universe. Scully exhibits masterful command of his subject, the fundamental role of information in the cosmos." Seth Lloyd, Author, "Programming the Universe", MIT
