Quantum theory concepts and methods
by
Asher Peres(
)
39 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book will be useful to anyone who wants to understand the use of quantum theory for the description of physical processes. It is a graduate level text, ideal for independent study, and includes numerous figures, exercises, bibliographical references, and even some computer programs. The first chapters introduce formal tools: the mathematics are precise, but not excessively abstract. The physical interpretation too is rigorous. It makes no use of the uncertainty principle of other illdefined notions. The central part of the book is devoted to Bell's theorem and to the KochenSpecker theorem. It is here that quantum phenomena depart most radically from classical physics. There has recently been considerable progress on these issues, and the latest developments have been included. The final chapters discuss further topics of current research: spacetime symmetries, quantum thermodynamics and information theory, semiclassical methods, irreversibility, quantum chaos, and especially the measuring process. In particular, it is shown how modern techniques allow the extraction of more information from a physical system than traditional measurement methods. For physicists, mathematicians and philosophers of science with an interest in the applications and foundations of quantum theory. The volume is suitable as a supplementary graduate textbook

Energy balance of uniformly accelerated charge
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
If the electromagnetic field of a uniformly ac celerated charge is computed by means of Lienard Wiechert potentials, it is found that the result does not correspond to a single source. Besides the original uniformly accelerated charge there is also a second charge, which is spread on a plane recessing in the opposite direction with the velocity of light. The work performed by this second charge against the electromagnetic field is equal to the constant rate of radiation of the physical system. This resolves the old paradox of the energy balance of a uniformly ac celerated charge, which radiates at a constant rate although it undergoes no radiation reaction. (Author)

Measurement of a quantum ensemble by a classical apparatus
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A simple model of an ensemble of quantum systems interacting with a classical test body is described, the test body serving to measure the expectation value of dynamical variable of the quantum systems. An expression is derived for the minimum interaction needed to perform the measurement, and it is shown that an interaction which is strong enough to determine an expectation value will transform a purestate ensemble into a mixture. The model can be generalized to the case in which the expectation values of several variables are measured. Finally, the test body is described by means of quantum mechanics and its most probable behavior is found to be that corresponding to the previous classical description. (Author)

CLASSICAL THEORY OF THE DIRAC ELECTRON
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper contains the Hamiltonian theory of a classical particle displaying all the features of the Dirac electron (spin, Zitterbewegung, etc) except, of course, for the superposition prin ciple. The particle is described by ten internal canonical variables, of which three are the spin angular momentum vector. The seven other vari ables have no simple physical meaning, but are nevertheless necessary for a consistent theory. The equations of motion are not manifestly covar iant, and the Lorentz invariance of the theory is proved by constructing the ten generators of the inhomoeneous Lorentz group. (Author)

Interaction of quantized and unquantized systems
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
It is shown that interactions between quantized and unquantized systems do not lead to any dyna mical inconsistencies. However, if the equations of motion of the classical system depend on the state of the quantized system, then the latter no longer satisfies a linear dynamical equation. This fact may have implications in the quantiza tion of the gravitational field and in the quan tum theory of measurement. (Author)
