Alice is ready to go into a complete new Wonderland. It's Quantumland--a type of highbrow leisure park, smaller than an atom, the place each one appeal demonstrates a special point of quantum idea. There she'll meet an Emperor who thinks his new outfits into life, dance with the 3 Quark Brothers on the Particle MASSquerade, go back and forth again in time (running into herself), and event every kind of quantum results. Readers will know about the Uncertainty precept, wave services, the Pauli precept, and different elusive innovations.
