The undivided universe : an ontological interpretation of quantum theory by David Bohm( Book )

35 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Undivided Universe, Professor David Bohm, one of the foremost scientific thinkers of the day and one of the most distinguished physicists of his generation, presents a radically different approach to quantum theory. With Basil Hiley, his co-author and long-time colleague, an interpretation of quantum theory is developed which gives a clear, intuitive understanding of its meaning and in which there is a coherent notion of the reality of the universe without assuming a fundamental role for the human observer." "With the aid of new concepts such as active information together with non-locality, a comprehensive account of all the basic features of quantum theory is provided, including the relativistic domain and quantum field theory. The new approach is contrasted with other commonly accepted interpretations and it is shown that paradoxical or unsatisfactory features of the other interpretations, such as the wave-particle duality and the collapse of the wave function, do not arise. Finally, on the basis of the new interpretation, the authors make suggestions that go beyond current quantum theory and they indicate areas in which quantum theory may be expected to break down in a way that will allow for a test."--Jacket

The principles of Newtonian and quantum mechanics : the need for Planck's constant, h by Maurice de Gosson( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second edition of this book deals, as the first, with the foundations of classical physics from the "symplectic" point of view, and of quantum mechanics from the "metaplectic" point of view. We have revised and augmented the topics studied in the first edition in the light of new results, and added several new sections. The Bohmian interpretation of quantum mechanics is discussed in detail. Phase space quantization is achieved using the "principle of the symplectic camel", which is a deep topological property of Hamiltonian flows. We introduce the notion of "quantum blob", which can be viewed as the fundamental phase space unit. The mathematical tools developed in this book are the theory of the symplectic and metaplectic group, the Maslov index in a rigorous form, and the Leray index of a pair of Lagrangian planes. The concept of the "metatron" is introduced, in connection with the Bohmian theory of motion. The short-time behavior of the propagator is studied and applied to the quantum Zeno effect."--Publisher's website

Postmodern science in the historical context of postmodern world by Nikolina Mladenova Sretenova( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study includes three parts. The introductory chapter discusses the controversial legitimacy of the notion of postmodern science, postmodern physics, in particular, and defines his argument and approach to the issue. The second chapter offers a case study analysis of the changing philosophical discourse of the Einstein-Bohr debate on foundations of quantum mechanics. He draws the conclusion that postmodern physics can enter legitimately the postmodern agenda to a degree to which the image of relational phenomenon dominates the postmodern path of thought. The third part of the study tests the design with interviews of several distinguished quantum physicists on the subject of Einstein-Bohr debate in order to verify both the idea and the findings of the study. Only the responses of B. Hiley are included with this printing
