Interpreting Quantum Theories by Laura Ruetsche
English | 2011 | ISBN: 019953540X | ISBN-13: 9780199535408 | 336 pages | PDF | 2,3 MB

Traditionally, philosophers of quantum mechanics have addressed exceedingly simple systems: a pair of electrons in an entangled state, or an atom and a cat in Dr. Schrodinger's diabolical device. Details

Quantum Theory as an Emergent Phenomenon: The Statistical Mechanics of Matrix Models as the Precursor of Quantum Field Theory by Stephen L. Adler
English | ISBN: 0521831946, 0521115973 | 2004 | 238 pages | PDF | 1,1 MB

Although it is our most successful physical theory, quantum mechanics raises conceptual issues that have perplexed physicists and philosophers of science for decades. This book develops a new approach based on the proposal that quantum theory is not a complete, final theory, but, in fact, an emergent phenomenon arising from a more profound level of dynamics.

Quantum Theory and the Flight From Realism: Philosophical Resp nses to Quantum Mechanics by Christopher Norris
English | 28 Apr. 2000 | ISBN: 0415223229, 0415223210 | 276 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

This book is a critical introduction to the long-standing debate concerning the conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics and the problems it has posed for physicists and philosophers from Einstein to the present. Details
Many Worlds?: Everett, Quantum Theory, & Reality

Many Worlds?: Everett, Quantum Theory, & Reality by Simon Saunders
Oxford University Press | August 20, 2010 | English | ISBN: 0199560560 | 528 pages | PDF | 3 MB

What does realism about the quantum state imply? What follows when quantum theory is applied without restriction, if need be, to the whole universe? These are the questions which an illustrious team of philosophers and physicists debate in this volume. All the contributors are agreed on realism, and on the need, or the aspiration, for a theory that unites micro- and macroworlds, at least in principle. Details
Consistent Quantum Theory
Author: Sonora

Robert B. Griffiths, Consistent Quantum Theory
Cambridge University Press | ISBN 0521803497 | 2001 | PDF | 400 pages | 1.4 MB

This volume elucidates the consistent quantum theory approach to quantum mechanics at a level accessible to university students in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, making this an ideal supplement to standard textbooks. Griffiths provides a clear explanation of points not yet adequately treated in traditional texts and which students find confusing, as do their teachers. The book will also be of interest to physicists and philosophers working on the foundations of quantum mechanics. Details
