New PDF release: Open Questions in Quantum Physics: Invited Papers on the

By Karl Popper (auth.), Gino Tarozzi, Alwyn van der Merwe (eds.)

Due to its impressive predictive strength and the nice generality of its mathematical constitution, quantum concept is ready, a minimum of in precept, to explain the entire microscopic and macroscopic homes of the actual global, from the subatomic to the cosmological point. however, ever because the Copen­ hagen and Gottingen faculties in 1927 gave it the definitive formu­ lation, now generally called the orthodox interpretation, the speculation has suffered from very critical logical and epistemologi­ cal difficulties. those shortcomings have been instantly mentioned by means of the various central founders themselves of quantum thought, to wit, Planck, Einstein, Ehrenfest, Schrodinger, and de Broglie, and by way of the thinker Karl Popper, who assumed a place of radical feedback in regards to the normal formula of the speculation. the purpose of the individuals within the workshop on Open Questions in Quantum Physics, which used to be held in Bari (Italy), within the division of Physics of the college, in the course of may well 1983 and whose court cases are accumulated within the current quantity, accord­ ingly was once to debate the formal, the actual and the epistemo­ logical problems of quantum conception within the gentle of modern an important advancements and to suggest a few attainable resolutions of 3 simple conceptual dilemmas, that are posed respectively ~: (a) the actual advancements of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen argument and Bell's theorem, i. e.

Vigier VIGIER: You did me =reat honor by mentioning my name in your lecture, but I am going to say that the result of the experiment is the same as the quantum-mechanical prediction: I mean that there are going to be correlations between the two measurements.

In mechanics that has to be changed, and this change does not seen possible in the existing quantum theory. We can affirm this because we made a s-ruqy of the description of separated systems in the field of quantum logic. Quanturn logic is a more general theory than quantum mechanics, in the sense that one can define axians such ~t, when these axians are satisfied, quantum logic reduces to quantum mechanics. (I) What one cruld shOll is that two of the foregoing axians are not satisfied in the description of separated systems.
