Item description for Quo Vadis Quantum Mechanics? (The Frontiers Collection) by Avshalom C. Elitzur, Shahar Dolev & Nancy Kolenda...
For more than a century, quantum mechanics has served as a very powerful theory that has expanded physics and technologyfar beyond their classical limits, yet it has also produced some of the most difficult paradoxes known to the human mind. This book represents the combined efforts of sixteen oftoday's most eminenttheoretical physicists to lay out future directions for quantum physics. The authors include Yakir Aharonov, Anton Zeilinger; the Nobel laureates Anthony Leggett and Geradus 't Hooft; Basil Hiley, Lee Smolin and Henry Stapp. Following a foreword by Roger Penrose, the individual chapters address questions such as quantum non-locality, the measurement problem, quantum insights into relativity, cosmology and thermodynamics, and the possible bearing of quantum phenomena on biology and consciousness.
