The manyworlds interpretation of quantum mechanics : a fundamental exposition by
Hugh Everett(
Book
)
24 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A novel interpretation of quantum mechanics, first proposed in brief form by Hugh Everett in 1957, forms the nucleus around which this book has developed. In his interpretation, Dr. Everett denies the existence of a separate classical realm and asserts the propriety of considering a state vector for the whole universe. Because this state vector never collapses, reality as a whole is rigorously deterministic. This reality, which is described jointly by the dynamical variables and the state vector, is not the reality customarily perceived; rather, it is a reality composed of many worlds. By vir

Bryce DeWitt's lectures on gravitation by
Bryce S DeWitt(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bryce DeWitt, a student of Nobel Laureate Julian Schwinger, was himself one of the towering figures in 20th century physics, particularly renowned for his seminal contributions to quantum field theory, numerical relativity and quantum gravity. In late 1971, DeWitt gave a course on gravitation at Stanford University, leaving almost 400 pages of detailed handwritten notes. Written with clarity and authority, and edited by his former student Steven Christensen, these timeless lecture notes, containing material or expositions not found in any other textbooks, are a gem to be discovered or rediscovered by anyone seriously interested in the study of gravitational physicsP. 4 of cover

Quantization of fields with infinitedimensional invariance groups. ii. anticommuting fields by
Bryce S DeWitt(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1960 and 1961 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Green's function approach to the definition of commutators for fields possessing infinite dimensional invariance groups is extended to the case of anticommuting fields. The discussion is restricted to fields which provide linear homogeneous or inhomogeneous representations of the group, a restriction which excludes no case of practical interest and facilitates setting up the formalism in a manifestly covariant way. Selfconsistency of supplementary conditions, Huygens' principle and reciprocity relations are established just as for commuting fields. Careful attention must be paid to the ordering of anticommuting factors, particularly in the demonstration of the PoissonJacobi identity. The invariance properties of the Poisson bracket are investigated in detail and the notion of conditional invariant is introduced. A special class of conditional invariants called asymptotic invariants, which give a complete physical characterization of initial and final states of the dynamical system, is studied
