Описание: книга Квантовые аспекты жизни с предисловием сэра Роджера Пенроуза, в которой исследуется открытый вопрос о роли квантовой механики на молекулярном уровне в биохимических процессах.
Описание: Quantum Aspects of Life is a 2008 science text, with a foreword by Sir Roger Penrose, which notably explores the open question of the role of quantum mechanics at molecular scales of relevance to biology. The book adopts a debate-like style and contains chapters written by various world-experts; giving rise to a mix of both skeptical and sympathetic viewpoints. The book notably addresses questions of quantum physics, biophysics, nanoscience, quantum chemistry, mathematical biology, complexity theory, and philosophy that are inspired by the 1944 seminal book What Is Life? by Erwin Schrödinger.
