Do We Really Understand Quantum Mechanics? by Franck Laloë

By Franck Laloë

Quantum mechanics is a truly winning conception that has impacted on many components of physics, from natural idea to purposes. notwithstanding, it truly is tricky to interpret, and philosophical contradictions and counterintuitive effects are obvious at a primary point. during this e-book, Laloë provides our present knowing of the idea. The ebook explores the elemental questions and problems that come up with the idea of quantum mechanics. It examines some of the interpretations which were proposed, describing and evaluating them and discussing their good fortune and problems. The ebook is perfect for researchers in physics and arithmetic who need to know extra in regards to the difficulties confronted in quantum mechanics yet who should not have professional wisdom within the topic. it's going to additionally curiosity philosophers of technological know-how, in addition to all scientists who're serious about quantum physics and its peculiarities.
