Item description for Foundations and Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics: In the Light of a Critical-Historical Analysis of the Problems and of a Synthesis of the Results by Gennaro Auletta & Giorgio Parisi...

The aim of this book is twofold: to provide a comprehensive account of the foundations of the theory and to outline a theoretical and philosophical interpretation suggested from the results of the last twenty years.

There is a need to provide an account of the foundations of the theory because recent experience has largely confirmed the theory and offered a wealth of new discoveries and possibilities. On the other side, the following results have generated a new basis for discussing the problem of the interpretation: the new developments in measurement theory; the experimental generation of "Schrdinger cats"; recent developments which allow, for the first time, the simultaneous measurement of complementary observables; quantum information processing, teleportation and computation.

To accomplish this task, the book combines historical, systematic and thematic approaches.

Reviews - What do customers think about Foundations and Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics: In the Light of a Critical-Historical Analysis of the Problems and of a Synthesis of the Results?

Someone had to do it!  May 9, 2008
Genaro Auletta put together a remarkable volume which, to my mind, is the most complete and useful review of all the work, theoretical and experimental, pure and applied, speculative and skeptical on the subject of the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics over the past 50 years! The many obvious faults of this work, namely the awkward english and the lack of a competent revision manifest in the abundance of inexcusable typos (Como, the name of the beautiful lake in northern Italy which witnessed the birth of Complementarity, is spelled Come!), do not deter from the magnificence of the accomplishment crystalized in these pages. Nowhere else short of a library can one find all the information here gathered. That alone is worth the price. The other point of note is that Auletta manages to convey the closest thing to a fair-and-balanced account of this highly polarized field where doctrinary proclivities have prevailed as rule over clear headed analysis. I can't think of any other book which I would rather recommend for someone seriously interested in the subject.
