Isotopic Randomness and Self-Organization
In Physics, Biology, Nanotechnology, and Digital Informatics
Describes largely unexplored terrains of isotopic diversity ("isotopicity") and its effects on the material world. A scientific journey from isotopic diversity and its effects to an "isotopic genetic code". Written in common-sense language.
Aims and Scope
The material world is made of atoms, and the majority of chemical elements has two or more stable isotopes. The existence of isotopes and their applications are well known. Yet, there is little appreciation of isotopic diversity as a singular phenomenon of nature. This book discusses aspects of isotopic diversity in terms of a singular principle: "isotopicity".
