Reading Bohr: Physics and Philosophy (Fundamental Theories by Arkady Plotnitsky

By Arkady Plotnitsky

The ebook is superb, incisive, crisp and marvelous. but if i discovered I already owned a duplicate, i have been attempting to go back it to Sherbiebooks through amazon.com, yet they have not answered to my e-mails and feature no mobile quantity. IT expense me $98.00, and i would wish to go back it. probably this message will ship me information.

Mathematical Quantum Theory I: Field Theory and Many-Body by J. Feldman, R. Froese, L. M. Rosen

By J. Feldman, R. Froese, L. M. Rosen

This publication is the 1st quantity of the lawsuits of the Canadian Mathematical Society Annual Seminar on Mathematical Quantum thought, held in Vancouver in August 1993. The seminar used to be run as a research-level summer season tuition targeting comparable parts of up to date mathematical physics. the topic of the first consultation, quantum box concept and many-body thought, is lined within the current quantity; papers from the second one consultation, on Schrödinger operators, are in quantity 2. each one consultation featured a sequence of minicourses, inclusive of nearly 4 one-hour lectures, designed to introduce scholars to present learn in a specific quarter. furthermore, approximately thirty audio system gave one-hour expository lectures. With contributions through a few of the best specialists within the box, this ebook presents an evaluate of the state-of-the-art in mathematical quantum box and many-body concept.

John von Neumann and the foundations of quantum physics by Miklós Rédei, Michael Stöltzner

By Miklós Rédei, Michael Stöltzner

John von Neumann (1903-1957) was once definitely one of many clinical geniuses of the 20 th century. the most fields to which he contributed contain a variety of disciplines of natural and utilized arithmetic, mathematical and theoretical physics, common sense, theoretical desktop technology, and desktop structure. Von Neumann used to be additionally actively interested by politics and technology administration and he had a significant effect on US govt judgements in the course of, and particularly after, the second one international struggle.
There exist numerous renowned books on his character and diverse collections targeting his achievements in arithmetic, computing device technology, and economic climate. unusually sufficient, to this point no designated appraisal of his seminal contributions to the mathematical foundations of quantum physics has seemed. Von Neumann's thought of dimension and his critique of hidden variables turned the touchstone of such a lot debates within the foundations of quantum mechanics. this day, his identify additionally figures so much prominently within the mathematically rigorous branches of modern quantum mechanics of huge structures and quantum box concept. and at last - as considered one of his final lectures, released in this quantity for the 1st time, indicates - he thought of the relation of quantum common sense and quantum mechanical chance as his most crucial challenge for the second one half the 20 th century.
the current quantity embraces either historic and systematic analyses of his technique of mathematical physics, and of many of the elements of his paintings within the foundations of quantum physics, corresponding to thought of size, quantum good judgment, and quantum mechanical entropy. the quantity is rounded off through formerly unpublished letters and lectures documenting von Neumann's pondering quantum concept after his 1932 Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics.
the overall a part of the Yearbook comprises papers rising from the Institute's annual lecture sequence and experiences of significant courses of philosophy of technological know-how and its heritage.

Do We Really Understand Quantum Mechanics? by Franck Laloë

By Franck Laloë

Quantum mechanics is a really profitable concept that has impacted on many components of physics, from natural concept to functions. besides the fact that, it's tough to interpret, and philosophical contradictions and counterintuitive effects are obvious at a basic point. during this booklet, Laloë offers our present figuring out of the idea. The booklet explores the elemental questions and problems that come up with the speculation of quantum mechanics. It examines some of the interpretations which were proposed, describing and evaluating them and discussing their luck and problems. The e-book is perfect for researchers in physics and arithmetic who need to know extra concerning the difficulties confronted in quantum mechanics yet who do not need professional wisdom within the topic. it is going to additionally curiosity philosophers of technological know-how, in addition to all scientists who're fascinated about quantum physics and its peculiarities.

Measurements in Quantum Mechanics by M. Pahlavani

By M. Pahlavani

Probably quantum mechanics is seen because the such a lot amazing improvement in twentieth century physics. every one winning thought is completely all for «results of measurement». Quantum mechanics standpoint is totally diversified from classical physics in dimension, simply because in microscopic global of quantum mechanics, an instantaneous dimension as classical shape is very unlikely. for this reason, through the years of advancements of quantum mechanics, consistently hard a part of quantum mechanics lies in measurements. This ebook has been written by means of a world invited staff of authors and it's created to explain diverse interpretation approximately size in quantum mechanics.

Principles of Discrete Time Mechanics by George Jaroszkiewicz

By George Jaroszkiewicz

May time be discrete on a few unimaginably small scale? Exploring the belief extensive, this detailed advent to discrete time mechanics systematically builds the speculation up from scratch, starting with the old, actual and mathematical historical past to the chronon speculation. protecting classical and quantum discrete time mechanics, this booklet provides the entire instruments had to formulate and increase purposes of discrete time mechanics in a few parts, together with spreadsheet mechanics, classical and quantum check in mechanics, and classical and quantum mechanics and box theories. A constant emphasis on contextuality and the observer-system courting is maintained all through.

Quantum Theory: A Very Short Introduction by John Polkinghorne

By John Polkinghorne

Quantum thought is the main innovative discovery in physics on the grounds that Newton. This publication offers a lucid, fascinating, and available account of the astounding and counterintuitive principles that form our figuring out of the sub-atomic international. It doesn't hide the issues of interpretation that also stay unsettled seventy five years after the preliminary discoveries. the most textual content makes little need of equations, yet there's a Mathematical Appendix for these wanting greater fare. Uncertainty, probabilistic physics, complementarity, the complex personality of dimension, and decoherence are among the themes mentioned. This quantity bargains the reader entry to at least one of the best discoveries within the heritage of physics and one of many oustanding highbrow achievements of the 20th century.
