Quantum Dynamical Systems

Presents a common framework for learning quantum and classical dynamical platforms, either finite and countless, conservative and dissipative. Illustrated via quite a few examples that are at once hooked up to the suitable physics.

Wissenschaftlicher Briefwechsel mit Bohr, Einstein, Heisenberg u.a. (Band IV, Teil IV, A)

Mit dem Druck von Wolfgang Paulis Briefwechsel aus seinen letzten beiden Lebensjahren wird eine großangelegte version der gesamten wissenschaftlichen Korrespondenz eines der bedeutendsten theoretischen Physiker des 20. Jahrhunderts abgeschlossen, der an der Entwicklung der wichtigsten physikalischen Ideen und Theorien, insbesondere an der Relativitätstheorie und Quantentheorie sowie deren weiteren Ausbau zu einer Feld- und Elementarteilchentheorie, teilgenommen hat.

Decoherence and the Appearance of a Classical World in Quantum Theory

A different description of the phenomena that come up from the interplay among quantum structures and their atmosphere. as a result of the novel personality of the method mentioned, the publication addresses scientists from all fields of physics and similar disciplines in addition to scholars of physics.

The emerging quantum : the physics behind quantum mechanics

This monograph provides the newest findings from a long term learn venture meant to spot the physics in the back of Quantum Mechanics. A primary idea for quantum mechanics is comprised of first actual rules, revealing quantization as an emergent phenomenon bobbing up from a deeper stochastic procedure.

15 We remark that classical mechanical determinism is rigidly coupled to the mathematical model of space-time, namely to the real continuum. The states of classical systems are given by pairs of real numbers (or by pairs of real vectors). The infinite divisibility of this space plays an important role, cf. with p-adic spaces which have been recently used in theoretical physics [3]. 16 Completeness of quantum mechanics 27 We are well aware of attempts to create models of a so-called quantum brain (see also Chapter 14).

Let us consider the phase space of the system of N particles, R2N , with points (q, p), where q = (q1 , . . , qN ), p = (p1 , . . , pN ). What is the probability density function which indicates the probability to find the first particle at point q1 with momentum p1 , the second particle at point q2 with momentum p2 , . . , the Nth particle at qN with momentum pN ? Since momenta are mass scalings of velocities, the question can be reformulated as: “What is the probability density function of the first particle at point q1 with velocity v1 , the second particle at point q2 with velocity v2 , .

Furthermore, [3] mentions that “In psychology, those, like Freud, who believe in psychic determination in psychiatry, assume that all mental events have causes. Freud believed that the existence of unconscious forces proved psychic determinism to be a fact of mental life . . ” See [4] [5] for an attempt to combine Freudian psychological determinism and free will through the Bohmian quantum model.
