EUAN SQUIRES THE MYSTERY OF THE QUANTUM WORLD PDF

Quantum mechanics stands as one of the most remarkable achievements of the twentieth century: at once a new and startling insight into the nature of matter and a spectacularly successful predictive theory. However, while the predictive abilty of the quantum theory has been rigorously tested time and time again, so that it now satisfies any criterion of reliability as a tool of scientific inquiry, surprisingly fundamental difficulties remain with its interpretation. This book introduces the general reader to the philosophical issues raised by the success of the quantum theory. What exactly is the wavefunction, the mathematical device that resides at the heart of the theory? In what sense does this device represent reality? The wavefunction is believed to describe the probability of a system's behaving in a particular way, yet the equations which describe the wave function are totally deterministic: what then is the relationship between determinism and ramdomness in the microworld?

Sep 11, Sebastian rated it really liked it. Great quantum-reality discussion revolving around the complexities and nuances of quantum mechanics. Goes into consciousness as the creator of observable phenomena: the observer breakdown. Non-locality, wavefunctions, multi-universe solutions etc. Author makes great attempts to convey the concepts in a simple, easy to understand manner, but still lacks full power in his ability to transmit the information completely clearly at times; though this doesn't distract enough to make the material genera Great quantum-reality discussion revolving around the complexities and nuances of quantum mechanics.

Author makes great attempts to convey the concepts in a simple, easy to understand manner, but still lacks full power in his ability to transmit the information completely clearly at times; though this doesn't distract enough to make the material generally unapproachable; just could still be better.
