Quantum Objects, 2014 Non-Local Correlation, Causality and Objective Indefiniteness in the Quantum World Fundamental Theories of Physics Series, Vol. 175

Langue : Anglais

Couverture de l’ouvrage Quantum Objects

This monograph identifies the essential characteristics of the objects described by current quantum theory and considers their relationship to space-time. In the process, it explicates the senses in which quantum objects may be consistently considered to have parts of which they may be composed or into which they may be decomposed. The book also demonstrates the degree to which reduction is possible in quantum mechanics, showing it to be related to the objective indefiniteness of quantum properties and the strong non-local correlations that can occur between the physical quantities of quantum subsystems. Careful attention is paid to the relationships among such property correlations, physical causation, probability, and symmetry in quantum theory. In this way, the text identifies and clarifies the conceptual grounds underlying the unique nature of many quantum phenomena.

Presents interpretation of quantum mechanics, advances in quantum foundations and philosophy of quantum mechanics

Explains non-locality and its relationship to causality and probability in quantum theory

Displays foundational characteristics of quantum physic to understand conceptual origins of the unusual nature of quantum phenomena

Describes relationship of subsystems and space-time

Gives a careful review of existing views

Confronts the old approaches with recent results and approaches from quantum information theory 

Delivers a clear and thorough analysis of the quantum events in the context of relativistic space-time, which impacts the problem of creating a theory of quantum gravity

Supplies a detailed discussion of non-local correlation within and beyond the bounds set by standard quantum mechanics, which impacts the foundations of information theory

Gives a detailed discussion of probabilistic causation (central to contemporary accounts of causation) in quantum mechanics and relativity

Leads a  thorough discussion of the nature of "quantum potentiality," the novel form of existence arising for the first time in quantum mechanics
