Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness

In attempting to comprehend the atom, physicists equipped quantum mechanics, the main profitable conception in technology and the foundation of one-third of our economic climate. they discovered, to their embarrassment, that with their conception, physics encounters awareness. Authors Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner clarify all this in non-technical phrases with support from a few fanciful tales and anecdotes in regards to the theory's builders.

Quantum theory of optical coherence

A precis of the pioneering paintings of Glauber within the box of optical coherence phenomena and photon facts, this e-book describes the elemental rules of contemporary quantum optics and photonics in an instructional variety. it really is hence not just meant as a reference for researchers within the box, but in addition to provide graduate scholars an perception into the elemental theories of the sector.

Is quantum logic really logic

Putnam and Finkelstein have proposed the abandonment of distributivity within the good judgment of quantum concept. this modification effects from defining the connectives, now not fact functionally, yet by way of a undeniable empirical ordering of propositions. Putnam has argued that using this ordering ("implication") to control proofs resolves convinced paradoxes.

2 Giovanni Amelino-Camelia Interferometry and string cosmology Up to this point I have only reviewed experiments probing foamy properties of space-time in the sense of Wheeler and Hawking. A different type of quantumgravity effect which might produce a signature strong enough for experimental testing has been discussed in the context of studies of a cosmology based on critical superstrings [76]. While for a description of this cosmology and of its physical signatures I must only refer the reader to the recent reviews in Ref.

The type of in vacuo dispersion which can be tested [5] using observations of gamma rays from distant astrophysical sources is naturally encoded within a consistent deformation of Poincar´e symmetries [23,27,28]. A useful structure (at least for toy-model purposes, but perhaps even more than that) appears to be the noncommutative (so-called “κ”) Minkowski spacetime [62,63,21] [xi , t] = ıλ xi , [xi , xj ] = 0 (38) where i, j = 1, 2, 3 and λ (commonly denoted22 by 1/κ) is a free length scale. This simple noncommutative space-time could be taken as a basis for an effective description of phenomena associated to a nontrivial foamy quantum-gravity vacuum23 .

43] and in the analysis of measurability of distances reported in Ref. [45]. Although once again the definitions of “min” Quantum-gravity phenomenology 39 and “δD” used in these studies are completely different from the ones relevant for the “min[δD]” of Eq. (35). 10 Quantum gravity, no strings attached Some of the arguments reviewed in these lecture notes appear to suggest that quantum gravity might require a mechanics not exactly of the type of ordinary quantum mechanics. In particular, the new mechanics might have to accommodate a somewhat different relationship (in a sense, “more democratic”) between “system” and “measuring apparatus”, and should take into account the fact that the limit in which the apparatus behaves classically is not accessible once gravitation is turned on.
