classic phenomena in physics utilizing simple language

and complex multi-dimensional mathematical formulas.

The work includes a collection of papers by famous

scientists, including Albert Einstein, Richard Feynman,

and many others.

Hawking explains the work of noted scientists utilizing

higher mathematics to depict the concepts. In addition,

he provides valuable insights into the significance of

these scientific concepts utilizing layperson's terms.

There is an intense discussion on how the spectrum of

black-body radiation changes with temperature variability.

For instance, Ludwig Boltzmann discusses how the entropy

of a system is a function of the probability of its state.

The definition of entropy encompasses a measure of the

disorder existing in a system; a measure of the energy

in a system or process that is unavailable to perform work

and a measure of the random errors in noise occurring from

the transmission of signals and the efficiency of

transmission systems.

The effective utilization of energy unavailable to perform

work or entropy is important to reduce fuel costs. These

costs are reduced by using energy byproducts that would

otherwise turn to waste and pollute the air. Resolving this

research question definitively could yield 200 or more miles

per gallon of gas.

Resolution of random errors in noise problems will advance

the state of art in telecommunications systems, as well as

cloud computing. These research questions are outgrowths of

the intensive interdisciplinary discussion of entropy in

this work. Ultimately, overcoming the limits of entropy

will help us to reduce fuel costs drastically and make

progress toward cleaning the environment.

Statistical probability is adequate for treatment of

thermal phenomena. New quantum mechanics gives us a better

understanding of the Helium atomic structure, half quantum

numbers in band spectra, continuous spatial distributions

of photoelectrons and the phenomena of radioactive

disintegration.

The existence of stationery states and photon theory

explains quantitatively the interaction of atoms and

radiation. The classic wave functions represent the

probability that an event will occur; however, this

probability relates to a computation of the probability

that a system ends in a definitive final state.

Hawking also highlights that a particle cannot penetrate

a potential barrier with a height greater than the particle

kinetic energy. For a moving particle, the kinetic energy

is defined as the total work from start to finish; or

conversely, its kinetic energy is the total amount of work

needed to attain its velocity starting from point zero.

summarizes many of the classic open research questions

in practical and theoretical physics. Stephen Hawking

explains the phenomena both in simple language, as well

as the language of higher mathematics utilizing the

integral calculus, ordinary differential equations,

probability and linear algebra.

The presentation makes for good reading by the public, as

well as the scientific community. In addition, the work enhances

the public knowledge and appreciation for physics and its

numerous practical applications in the consumer sector.

Surprisingly, 5590 people have looked at this review. We need more people to become knowledgeable in science. Otherwise, as a people, we will not have the power to even know what needs changing let alone changing things for the better.

This is true. Well, at least you've helped educate 5590 people (and growing)!

I certainly hope that is the case.
