Title:Quantum Theory: A Two-Time Success Story [electronic resource] : Yakir Aharonov Festschrift
Author(s): Daniele C Struppa
Jeffrey M Tollaksen
Date:2014
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Yakir Aharonov is one of the leading figures in the foundations of quantum physics. His contributions range from the celebrated Aharonov-Bohm effect (1959), to the more recent theory of weak measurements (whose experimentalconfirmations were recently ranked as the two most important results of physics in 2011). This volume will contain 27 original articles, contributed by the most important names in quantum physics, in honor of Aharonov's 80-th birthday.Sections include Quantum mechanics and reality, with contributions from Nobel Laureates David Gross and Sir Anthony Leggett and Yakir Aharonov, S. Popescu and J. Tollaksen Building blocks of Nature with contributions fromFrancois Englert (co-proposer of the scalar boson along with Peter Higgs) Time an d Cosmology with contributions from Leonard Susskind, P.C.W. Davies and James Hartle Universe as a Wavefunction, with contributions from PhilPearle, Sean Carroll and David Albert Nonlocality, with contributions from Nicolas Gisin, Daniel Rohrlich, Ray Chi ao and Lev Vaidman and finishing with multiple sections on weak values with contributions from A. Jordan, A.Botero, A.D. Parks, L. Johansen, F. Colombo, I. Sabadini, D.C. Struppa, M.V. Berry, B. Reznik, N. Turok, G.A.D. Briggs, Y. Gefen, P. Kwiat, and A. Pines, among others

Title:Quo Vadis Quantum Mechanics? [electronic resource]
Author(s): Avshalom C Elitzur
Shahar Dolev
Nancy Kolenda
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For more than a century, quantum mechanics has served as a very powerful theory that has expanded physics and technology far beyond their classical limits, yet it has also produced some of the most difficult paradoxes known tothe human mind. This boo k represents the combined efforts of sixteen of today's most eminent theoretical physicists to lay out future directions for quantum physics. The authors include Yakir Aharonov, Anton Zeilinger the Nobellaureates Anthony Leggett and Geradus 't Hooft Basil Hiley, Lee Smolin and Henry Stapp. Following a foreword by Roger Penrose, the individual chapters address questions such as quantum non-locality, the measurement problem, quantuminsights into relativity, cosmology and thermodynamics, and the possible bea ring of quantum phenomena on biology and consciousness
