Synopses & Reviews
Written for those interested in the fundamental questions of physics, this book is a fascinating account of the development of quantum theory. This second edition has been extensively revised and updated to cover recent developments and include new findings. A substantial new chapter is devoted to the emergence of quantum information theory as one of the fastest growing areas of twenty-first century science. This edition also covers in detail developments in the experimental and theoretical study of Bell's Theorem.
Synopsis
The debate between Bohr and Einstein, which raged in the 1920s and 1930s, involved the two greatest physicists of the twentieth century. The debate concerned the quantum theory, probably the most successful physical theory of all time, and this book explores the details of the conflict, as well as its significance for contemporary views on the foundations of quantum theory.
