 About the Book 

From the zeros of the mathematicians to the void of the philosophers, from Shakespeare to the empty set, from the ether to the quantum vacuum, from being and nothingness to creatio ex nihilo, there is much ado about nothing at the heart of things.MoreFrom the zeros of the mathematicians to the void of the philosophers, from Shakespeare to the empty set, from the ether to the quantum vacuum, from being and nothingness to creatio ex nihilo, there is much ado about nothing at the heart of things. Recent exciting discoveries in astronomy shed new light on the nature of the vacuum and its dramatic effect upon the explanation of the Universe. John Barrow unravels the different concepts of nothing from quantum physics and cosmology to mathematics and philosophy. There is something of nothing for everyone in this remarkable book.
