Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: John Bell, FRS was one of the leading expositors and interpreters of modern quantum theory. He is particularly famous for his discovery of the crucial difference between the predictions of conventional quantum mechanics and the implications of local causality, a concept insisted on by Einstein. John Bell's work played a major role in the development of our current understanding of the profound nature of quantum concepts and of the fundamental limitations they impose on the applicability of the classical ideas of space, time and locality. This book includes all of John Bell's published and unpublished papers on the conceptual and philosophical problems of quantum mechanics, including two papers that appeared after the first edition was published. The book includes a short Preface written by the author for the first edition, and also an introduction by Alain Aspect that puts into context John Bell's enormous contribution to the quantum philosophy debate.

Описание: This is an exceptionally accessible, accurate, and nontechnical introduction to quantum mechanics. After briefly summarizing the differences between classical and quantum behaviour, this engaging account considers the SternGerlach experiment and its implications, treats the concepts of probability, and then discusses the EinsteinPodolskyRosen paradox and Bell’s theorem. Quantal interference and the concept of amplitudes are introduced and the link revealed between probabilities and the interference of amplitudes. Quantal amplitude is employed to describe interference effects. Final chapters explore exciting new developments in quantum computation and cryptography, discover the unexpected behaviour of a quantal bouncingball, and tackle the challenge of describing a particle with no position. Thoughtprovoking problems and suggestions for further reading are included. Suitable for use as a course text, The Strange World of Quantum Mechanics enables students to develop a genuine understanding of the domain of the very small. It will also appeal to general readers seeking intellectual adventure. Купить
 

Автор: Partha Ghose Название: Testing Quantum Mechanics on New Ground ISBN: 0521026598 ISBN13(EAN): 9780521026598 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Цена: 2454 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: Technological advances have made it possible to perform experiments, once considered to be purely gedanken, which test the counterintuitive and bizarre consequences of quantum theory. This book provides simple accounts of these experiments and an understanding of what they aim to prove and why this is important. After introducing the main theoretical concepts and problems with the foundations of quantum mechanics, early chapters discuss experiments in the areas of waveparticle duality, cavity quantum electrodynamics and quantum nondemolition measurement. The text then examines investigation of certain predictions including the AharanovBohm effect, before tackling the problem of macroscopic quantum coherence. Later chapters consider methods of testing the quantum Zeno paradox, collapse, macroscopic quantum jumps, tunnelling times and EinsteinBell nonlocality. Introductions to the theory behind types of measuring devices such as micromasers and those based on the concept of quantum nondemolition are also given. Detailed references are included. Купить
 

Автор: Peter Mittelstaedt Название: The Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics and the Measurement Process ISBN: 0521602815 ISBN13(EAN): 9780521602815 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Цена: 3154 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: The main theme of this book is the idea that quantum mechanics is valid not only for microscopic objects but also for the macroscopic apparatus used for quantum mechanical measurements. The author demonstrates the intimate relations that exist between quantum mechanics and its interpretation which are induced by the quantum mechanical measurement process. Consequently, the book is concerned both with the philosophical, metatheoretical problems of interpretations and with the more formal problems of quantum object theory. The consequences of this approach turn out to be partly very promising and partly rather disappointing. On the one hand, it is possible to give a rigorous justification of some important parts of interpretation, such as probability, by means of object theory. On the other hand, the problem of the objectification of measurement results leads to inconsistencies which cannot be resolved in an obvious way. This open problem has farreaching consequences for the possibility of recognising an objective reality in physics. Купить
 

Автор: Pieter E. Vermaas Название: A Philosopher`s Understanding of Quantum Mechanics ISBN: 0521675677 ISBN13(EAN): 9780521675673 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Цена: 4470 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: This book is about how to understand quantum mechanics by means of a modal interpretation. Modal interpretations provide a general framework within which quantum mechanics can be considered as a theory that describes reality in terms of physical systems possessing definite properties. Quantum mechanics is standardly understood to be a theory about probabilities with which measurements have outcomes. Modal interpretations are relatively new attempts to present quantum mechanics as a theory which, like other physical theories, describes an observerindependent reality. In this book, Pieter Vermaas summarises the results of this work. The book will be of great value to undergraduates, graduate students and researchers in philosophy of science, and physics departments with an interest in learning about modal interpretations of quantum mechanics.

Автор: Kyriakos Tamvakis Название: Problems and Solutions in Quantum Mechanics ISBN: 052160057X ISBN13(EAN): 9780521600576 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Цена: 4470 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: This collection of solved problems corresponds to the standard topics covered in established undergraduate and graduate courses in Quantum Mechanics. Problems are also included on topics of interest which are often absent in the existing literature. Solutions are presented in considerable detail, to enable students to follow each step. The emphasis is on stressing the principles and methods used, allowing students to master new ways of thinking and problemsolving techniques. The problems themselves are longer than those usually encountered in textbooks and consist of a number of questions based around a central theme, highlighting properties and concepts of interest. For undergraduate and graduate students, as well as those involved in teaching Quantum Mechanics, the book can be used as a supplementary text or as an independent selfstudy tool. Купить

Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: If you need a book that relates the core principles of quantum mechanics to modern applications in engineering, physics, and nanotechnology, this is it. Students will appreciate the book’s applied emphasis, which illustrates theoretical concepts with examples of nanostructured materials, optics, and semiconductor devices. The many worked examples and more than 160 homework problems help students to problem solve and to practise applications of theory. Without assuming a prior knowledge of highlevel physics or classical mechanics, the text introduces Schrodinger’s equation, operators, and approximation methods. Systems, including the hydrogen atom and crystalline materials, are analyzed in detail. More advanced subjects, such as density matrices, quantum optics, and quantum information, are also covered. Practical applications and algorithms for the computational analysis of simple structures make this an ideal introduction to quantum mechanics for students of engineering, physics, nanotechnology, and other disciplines.
