The book begins at the simplest level, develops the basics, and reinforces fundamentals, ensuring a solid foundation in the principles and methods of physics. The topics of this book are the mathematical foundations of non-relativistic quantum mechanics and the mathematical theory they require. The main characteristic of the book is that the mathematics is developed assuming familiarity with elementary analysis only. Moreover, all the proofs are carried out in detail. These features make the book easily accessible to readers with only the.

    Since its inception in the early decades of the twentieth century, quantum mechanics has joined Einstein's theory of relativity and Darwin's theory of evolution as a dominating scientific force. Nevertheless, the theory has steadfastly resisted interpretation within a conventional worldview. There is no consensus among workers in the field as to how to solve the difficult and profound problems. Quantum Information Theory and the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics is a conceptual analysis of one the most prominent and exciting new areas of physics, providing the first full-length philosophical treatment of quantum information theory and the questions it raises for our understanding of the quantum .

“I do think this is a book worth buying for anyone interested in the foundations of quantum mechanics. Foundations of Quantum Mechanics is an excellent addition to the library of physicists and philosophers working on these problems, and makes a very good supplemental text for related advanced undergraduate courses.” (Ian Durham, FQXi Cited by:   Foundations of Quantum Mechanics: An Exploration of the Physical Meaning of Quantum Theory (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics) - Kindle edition by Norsen, Travis.

This hardcover version of “ John S Bell On The Foundations Of Quantum Mechanics” looks like a pirate book. It’s way different from the hardback book that a friend of mine has from abroad. The quality of the binding, paper everything looks different & in a The Foundations of Quantum Mechanics book way.

This book tells the fascinating story of the people and events behind the turbulent changes in attitudes to quantum theory in the second half of the 20th century. The huge success of quantum mechanics as a predictive theory has been accompanied, from the very beginning, by doubts and controversy about its foundations and interpretation.

This book looks in detail at how research on foundations. This book studies the foundations of quantum theory through its relationship to classical physics. This idea goes back to the Copenhagen Interpretation (in the original version due to Bohr and Heisenberg), which the author relates to the mathematical formalism of.

The Theoretical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics addresses fundamental issues that are not discussed in most books on quantum mechanics. This book focuses on analyzing the underlying principles of quantum mechanics and explaining the conceptual and theoretical underpinning of quantum mechanics.

The Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, Jeffrey A. Barrett Books, Oxford UP Books, at Meripustak. In this book Jeffrey A. Barrett provides an introduction to the history and conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics.

He begins with a description of classical mechanics and a discussion of the quantum phenomena that radically undermine our common-sense classical intuitions about how the physical world works.

Physics concerns direct analysis of the physical world, while philosophy analyzes knowledge about the physical world. This volume combines both disciplines for a philosophical interpretation of quantum physics — an interpretation free from the imprecision of metaphysics, offering a view of the atomic world and its quantum mechanical results as concrete as the visible everyday world.5/5(1).

Book Description: Quantum mechanics is an extraordinarily successful scientific theory. But it is also completely mad.

Although the theory quite obviously works, it leaves us chasing ghosts and phantoms; particles that are waves and waves that are particles; cats that are at once both alive and dead; lots of seemingly spooky goings-on; and a desperate desire to lie down quietly in a darkened room. springer, The Theoretical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics addresses fundamental issues that are not discussed in most books on quantum mechanics.

This book focuses on analyzing the underlying principles of quantum mechanics and explaining the conceptual and theoretical underpinning of quantum mechanics.

In particular, the concepts of quantum indeterminacy, quantum measurement and quantum. L. Ballentine, Quantum Mechanics - a modern devlopment, World Scientific () There's a newer edition of this book, but I've not seen it and I can't say what's new in it.

I guess, Ballentine might have updated something relevant to the interpretational questions given the recent experimental progress in the last 20 years.

The Schrodinger equation is never solved in the book. Rather, the discussion on the fundamentals of quantum mechanics is treated in a rigorous manner based on the mathematics of quantum mechanics.

The new concept of the interplay of empirical and trans-empirical constructs in quantum mechanics is introduced to clarify the foundations of quantum. In The Foundations of Quantum Mechanics - Historical Analysis and Open Questions, leading Italian researchers involved in different aspects of the foundations and history of quantum mechanics are brought together in an interdisciplinary book therefore presents an invaluable overview of the state of Italian work in the field at this moment, and of the open problems that still exist.

I think this is a very good introduction to philosophical foundations of quantum mechanics from a realist point of view. On the other hand, quantum foundations experts, anti-realists and those who do not like philosophy will not find much value in this book. If you read one book (or a first book) on the subject indicated by its title, “foundations of quantum mechanics", read this one.

Unlike most other books about the mysteries of quantum mechanics (which are popularizations rather than serious physics texts, or which assume considerable technical background, or which are simply wrong-headed in.
