Quantum physics : a first encounter : interference, entanglement, and reality / Valerio Scarani ; translated by Rachael Thew.

The essential features of quantum physics, largely debated since its discovery, are presented in this book, through the description (without mathematics) of recent experiments. Putting the accent on physical phenomena, this book clarifies the historical issues (delocalisation, interferences) and rea...
