In the tradition of Lawrence Krauss’s bestselling The Physics of Star Trek, author Jennifer Ouellette’s The Physics of the Buffyverse uses the characters, concepts and plot lines of the popular television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” to illustrate a wide range of fundamental concepts in the physical sciences: everything from sound, electricity, materials science, and thermodynamics, to concepts of time and time travel, wormholes, black holes, and string theory.
The Buffyverse is an undeniably bizarre place—a world where the melding of magic and science is a defining feature, and mystical convergences and otherworldly phenomena are everyday occurrences. Through examples from the hit TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel—and the vampires, demons, witches, and interdimensional portals therein—acclaimed science write Jennifer Ouellette explains complicated principles of biology, chemistry, and theoretical physics. From electricity, conservation of energy, and special relativity to wormholes, black holes, and string theory, The Physics of the Buffyverse provides a serious shot of science for those who prefer their physics with a pop-culture chaser.
