About Spin State From a stunning new voice in hard science fiction comes the thrilling story of one woman’s quest to wrest truth from chaos, love from violence, and reality from illusion in a post-human universe of emergent AIs, genetic constructs, and illegal wetware.   SPIN STATE UN Peacekeeper Major Catherine Li has made thirty-seven faster-than-light jumps in her lifetime—and has probably forgotten more than most people remember. But that’s what backup hard drives are for. And Li should know; she’s been hacking her memory for fifteen years in order to pass as human/5(10).   Spin State is a solid SF book. A fast-paced page-turner with DEPTH. Published by User, 16 years ago I couldn't put this book down. I was immediately engaged in Moriarty's world. From the first chapter the story had me completely sucked in. But the best thing is that all the great storytelling is backed up by substance: the 5/5(5).   The world of Spin State is outlined, but never quite fully detailed. The main setting, a planet called Compson's World, has the gritty feel of an Appalachian coal mining town. Spin State does not rely on the flash of strange worlds, but rather on a finely drawn and Reviews:

By the end of the book, Catherine has become more than a warrior. At the end of Spin State Chris Moriarty includes a number of references from physics, philosophy and artificial intelligence. The book frequently refers to Bose-Einstein condensates. In the book this is an exotic form of matter that can only be found on Compson's World. About this book It has long been recognized that metal spin states play a central role in the reactivity of important biomolecules, in industrial catalysis and in spin crossover compounds.   For a closed-shell configuration, the spin state is a singlet and the spin angular momentum is 0 because the contributions from the \(\alpha\) and \(\beta\) spins cancel. For an open shell configuration, which is characteristic of free radicals, there is an odd number of electrons and the spin quantum number \(s = \frac {1}{2}\). Spin is a science fiction novel by American-Canadian writer Robert Charles Wilson. It was published in and won the Hugo Award for Best Novel in It is the first book in the Spin trilogy, with Axis (the second) published in and Vortex published in July
