Summary and Info
FeaturesA much needed book by a leading figure in quantum foundationsEntertaining reading with a clear no-nonsense styleAccessible to all those with a basic grounding in quantum mechanicsThis book explains, in simple terms, with a minimum of mathematics, why things can appear to be in two places at the same time, why correlations between simultaneous events occurring far apart cannot be explained by local mechanisms, and why, nevertheless, the quantum theory can be understood in terms of matter in motion. No need to worry, as some people do, whether a cat can be both dead and alive, whether the moon is there when nobody looks at it, or whether quantum systems need an observer to acquire definite properties. The author’s inimitable and even humorous style makes the book a pleasure to read while bringing a new clarity to many of the longstanding puzzles of quantum physics.TopicsQuantum PhysicsHistory and Philosophical Foundations of PhysicsPhilosophy of Science
