 Misconceptions in quantum physics / Bill Poirier
 The singular quantum. Why is quantum physics weird? ; What do the experts say?
 What hope is there for the rest of us?
 What material will be covered?
 How to use this book
 The bipolar quantum: waveparticle duality. Wave, particle, or "wavicle"? ; Quantum probability waves ; Heisenberg uncertainty principle
 Quantum soccer: the doubleslit experiment. A reasonable doubt ; Singleslit experiment: classical ; Singleslit experiment: quantum ; Doubleslit experiment: classical
 Doubleslit experiment: quantum
 The plural quanta: expanding the wavefunction. Manyparticle wavefunctions ; Wavefunction measurement ; Collapse and Schrödinger's cat
 The "spooky" quantum: nonlocality. Entanglement and hidden variables ; Bell's theorem ; EPRB as a game of coin toss: classical version ; EPRB as a game of coin toss: quantum version
 Playing the "What If?" game
 Where the weird things are. Where are they? Where are we? ; Interpretations of quantum physics ; Popular depictions of quantum physics
 Appendix I: Looking under the hood: the mathematical "method" behind the "madness"
 Misconceptions about particles and spacetime / John Terning
 Particles. What are particles? ; Atoms ; Seeing atoms
 Mini black holes. Black holes ; Black holes and extra dimensions
 Particle colliders and the universe. The Higgs boson ; Parallel universes
 Physics in the news. Cell hone radiation ; Cold fusion
 Epilogue. Spinach: a cautionary tale
 Moving forward
 Extra material: the equations behind the words. Units and coordinates ; Einstein's special theory of relativity ; Quantum mechanics and scattering ; Gravity ; Black holes ; Black holes in extra dimensions ; The large Hadron collider ; Complex numbers ; Group theory: rotations and spinors ; The Higgs ; Fusion
