Lines of Space: Source of Fundamental Forces and Constituent of All Matter in the Universe is a non-fiction molecular physics book written by Devinder Dhiman. The author studied engineering at the Marine Engineering and Research Institute in Kolkata. The material in this book is presented as a tutorial that the author conducts for his son (and eventually his daughter as well) to help him perform better on his collegiate admissions exams. While Sahil performed well in mathematics, he had little interest in physics and chemistry. He explained to his father that, while he was familiar with the theories regarding atoms and molecules, they seemed to be no more than figments of scientists' imaginations. Among other subjects, Sahil asked his father to explain why electrons have negative charges and where that charge originates. While Dhiman was considering the answers to his son's questions, he began to develop his own theory of Lines of Space.
Devinder Dhiman's theoretical physics text, Lines of Space: Source of Fundamental Forces and Constituent of All Matter, is a provocative and attractive work that is written at a level such that readers with little or no physics background can appreciate and learn from it. I'm such a reader. While I love mathematics and am fairly comfortable with that discipline, I've never studied physics, so I was eager to read the author's text. Dhiman's presentation of his subject is masterful. I especially appreciated how he used correlations of the familiar to enhance his children's understanding of the complexities of physics. When I finished reading Lines of Space, I knew a lot more than I had going in. Abstract concepts such as the Theory of Relativity had become more than just a collection of words and complex concepts. Dhiman presents the accepted science and then shows arguments for his own theories, and he does so in such a manner that a layperson can also appreciate and learn. He also gives a marvelous historical perspective of the development of molecular physics. Lines of Space: Source of Fundamental Forces and Constituent of All Matter is a relatively challenging read, but those readers willing to make the effort will find the results to be rewarding indeed. It's highly recommended.
