Motion Mountain - Volume 5

This book is written for anybody who is curious about nature and motion. Curiosity about how bodies, images and empty space move leads to many adventures.The present volume presents the best adventures about themotion inside people, inside animals, and inside any type of matter – from the largest stars to the smallest nuclei.
Motion inside bodies – dead or alive – is described by quantum theory. Quantumtheory is the description of motion based on a smallest action, or better, a smallest change. With this basic idea, the text shows how to describe life, death and pleasure.The smallest change also explains the observations of chemistry, geology, material science and astrophysics. In the structure of physics, these topics correspond to the three ‘quantum’ points in Figure 1.They form applied quantum physics and are presented in this text.The story grew froma threefold aim that I have pursued since 1990: to present the basics ofmotion in a way that is simple, up to date and captivating.
In order to be simple, the text focuses on concepts, while keeping mathematics to the necessary minimum. Understanding the concepts of physics is given precedence over using formulae in calculations.The whole text is within the reach of an undergraduate.
In order to be up to date, the text is enriched by themany gems – both theoretical and empirical – that are scattered throughout the scientific literature.
