Heinz Rudolf Pagels February 19, — July 23, was an American physicist ,  an associate professor of physics at Rockefeller University, the executive director and chief executive officer of the New York Academy of Sciences , and president of the International League for Human Rights. Marciano and "Departures from Chiral Symmetry". A number of his published papers dealt with the source of the mass of elementary particles in quantum field theory , especially the Nambu—Goldstone realization of chiral symmetry breaking. He also published with David Atkatz a visionary paper entitled "Origin of the Universe as a quantum tunneling event"  that prefigured later work done in the field.

Bestselling Series. Harry Potter. Popular Features. Home Learning. Description The Cosmic Code can be read by anyone. I heartily recommend it! Pagels is unfailingly lighthearted and confident.
Heinz Pagels, an eminent physicist and science writer, discusses and explains the core concepts of physics without resorting to complicated mathematics. The two-part treatment outlines the history of quantum physics and addresses complex subjects such as Bell's theorem and elementary particle physics, drawing upon the work of Bohr, Gell-Mann, and others.
Anecdotes from the personal documents of Einstein, Oppenheimer, Bohr, and Planck offer intimate glimpses of the scientists whose work forever changed the world. Other books in this series.

The Cosmic Code : Quantum Physics as the Language of Nature
Access options available:. Heinz R. Bantam Books, New York, Reviewed by J. Now, however, matters have even gone further. Not only are mathematical formulae indispensable, but what these formulae describe are pictures or models of a world in which the basic rules of formal logic seem to be set at defiance. This is the message at the core of this very good and readable new book.
