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 conception to functions. although, it really is tricky to interpret, and philosophical contradictions and counterintuitive effects are obvious at a primary point. during this e-book, Laloë offers our present figuring out of the idea. The booklet explores the fundamental questions and problems that come up with the speculation of quantum mechanics. It examines some of the interpretations which have been proposed, describing and evaluating them and discussing their good fortune and problems. The booklet is perfect for researchers in physics and arithmetic who need to know extra concerning the difficulties confronted in quantum mechanics yet who would not have professional wisdom within the topic. it is going to additionally curiosity philosophers of technological know-how, in addition to all scientists who're taken with quantum physics and its peculiarities.
