Summary

One way to understand the world is by looking at its most basic building blocks. All the substances in the world are made up of atoms, which interact with each other by exchanging or sharing electrons. All atoms can be organized into the periodic table of elements, which groups atoms by their chemical properties. Deep within the atom lies the nucleus, which itself contains the elementary particles called quarks. By building powerful particle accelerators and enormous detectors, physicists are able to probe the most fundamental constituents of matter.

Filled with full-color photographs and illustrations and bolstered by its readable text and helpful references, The Nature of Matter, Third Edition is a compelling guide that identifies the essential qualities and characteristics by which matter is recognized.

About the Author(s)

Daniel Larson grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and enjoyed soccer, basketball, trombone, and math as a kid. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics from the University of California, Berkeley, where he also fell in love with trail running. After nearly nine years as a full time parent to his three wonderful children, he returned to scientific research in the field of computational condensed matter physics studying two-dimensional materials. When not running large calculations on various supercomputers throughout the country, he can be found running on the trails of the Adirondack High Peaks in upstate New York.
