Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics provides a detailed view of the conceptual foundations and problems of quantum physics, and a clear and comprehensive account of the fundamental physical implications of the quantum formalism. This book deals with nonseparability, hidden variable theories, measurement theories and several related problems. Mathematical arguments are presented with an emphasis on simple but adequately representative cases. The conclusion incorporates a description of a set of relationships and concepts that could compose a legitimate view of the world.

Book News Annotation:

Deals with the elementary tools of quantum theory, nonseparability, hidden variable theories, measurement theories, objectivism, positivism, and Bohr's and Heisenberg's ideas. The present edition is a reprint of the 1988 second edition, which was itself a re-issuing of the original edition, now dating back 23 years.
