Summary:
Annotation

Together with relativity theory, quantum mechanics stands as the conceptual foundation of modern physics. It forms the basis by which we understand the minute workings of the subatomic world. But at its core lies a paradox--it is unmeasurable. This book presents a powerful and energetic new approach to the measurement dilemma.

Abstract:

Conceptions of quantum mechanics imply that many of the actual measurements can have no definite outcomes. Some quantity is always indefinite and if an indefinate quantity is measured, the  Read more...
