Despite the distance between physicists Andres Jumperov s Jose Edelstein I decided to meet some time ago to develop the book Antimatter, magic and poetryWhere they narrate, in a close manner, different landmarks and ideas from the world of science.
In conversation with CNN ChileJumperov explained that the purpose of this text is to show “The aesthetic sense of scientific ideas and the method of formulating theoriesThis part of science piques his interest and “doesn’t always appear with enough concentration.”

“It’s not (…) a black box where you enter data on one side and theories appear on the other side, but it’s very cool moments where People in a race to find the truth enlighten themselves and set up questions that can be totally crazy“, He said.
The researcher at the Center for Scientific Studies (CECs) revealed the meaning behind the title of the book and said: Science “becomes poetry done by mathematics” It was from this poetry that “wonderful ideas and amazing combinations of nature” were born.
The book features small episodes or accidents that lead to great theories, with stories like this Paul Dirac, “The great poet of all physicists,” or Richard Feynman“The Wizard of Physics”, whose ideas seem “crazy, but they produced very important results in the second half of the twentieth century.”
Likewise, Jumperov emphasized that the reader can also find ‘Cool ideas that also act as tools for other forms of aesthetics like music or soccerWith novels featuring greats singers and athletes.

Finally, the physicist concluded this Science is “a way to read nature between the lines” because it allows “to look beyond what is being seen.”. “Mathematics is able to reach the essence of matter and allude to a reality in which we find a shocking beauty.”
