Product Description
The double-slit experiment has been widely discussed since the beginning of quantum mechanics. Many popular science books use the experiment to illustrate the wave-particle duality of light and matter. According to Richard Feynman, the double-slit experiment contains the only mystery of quantum mechanics. After we have unveiled the mystery, we will be able to understand quantum mechanics.What is the mystery then? The mystery lies in understanding the counterintuitive experimental results. What do they imply for the nature of reality? How on earth does a single electron pass through two slits at the same time? Exactly what is an electron? There are already many possible pictures of quantum reality. From pilot wave and Brownian motion to many worlds and dynamical collapse, every interpretation claims that it gives the right answer. But which one is right? Or none of them is right? Obviously there is only one true picture of quantum reality. Can we find it now?It has been widely thought that the mystery of quantum mechanics can only be unveiled by future precise experiments. However, this may be not the case. This little book will show that a penetrating analysis can already lead us to the way out of the maze of quantum interpretations. In the end, the true picture of quantum reality will naturally appear, and it can also be understood by general readers. To our great surprise, quantum mechanics already tells the secret. It is that a single electron passes through two slits at the same time in a discontinuous and random way.Book & Thoughts Reviews:This is an ambitious work that reflects admirable grip, and distinctive take, on much of the contemporary philosophy of quantum mechanics literature.---- Reviewer of Philosophy of Science The idea of using discontinuous motion as a realist interpretation of quantum mechanics is original.---- Reviewer of Foundations of PhysicsIts very existence is at any rate, an excellent illustration of the extent to which physical data force us to depart from commonsense ideas when we try to depict reality “as it really is”.---- Bernard d'Espagnat, Templeton Prize 2009 Laureate, author of Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and On Physics and Philosophy

QUANTUM MECHANICS : A Textbook for Undergraduates
by PHI

This textbook is written as a basic introduction to Quantum Mechanics for use by the undergraduate students in physics, who are exposed to this subject for the first time. Providing a gentle introduction to the subject, it fills the gap between the available books which provide comprehensive coverage appropriate for postgraduate courses and the ones on Modern Physics which give a rather incomplete treatment of the subject leaving out many conceptual and mathematical details.

The Consciousness of the Atom

The seven lectures presented here were delivered in New York for the purpose of presenting the testimony of science as to the relation of matter and of consciousness; to enable the hearers to observe the identical manifestation of these relations and of certain basic laws in successively higher states of being, and thus to bring to them a realization of the universality of the evolutionary process and its actuality; and to deal somewhat with the nature of the expanded states of consciousness...

Understanding Quantum Physics: An Advanced Guide for the Perplexed
by Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

Quantum physics is admittedly the most difficult subject to understand. Physicists, let alone students and laymen, are still puzzled by it today. As Richard Feynman once famously claimed, nobody understood quantum mechanics. The crux of the matter lies in the meaning of the mysterious wave function in the theory. An electron is represented by a wave function. But it remains unclear what physical state the mathematical wave function represents. Exactly what is an electron? Is it a spreading wave...

String Theory Simplified: What is Theoretical Physics?

This book provides a detailed look at the development, history, and current state of String Theory. However, unlike some books that are filled with equations and difficult math, the book is written in an easy to understand way and guides the reader through string theory. You are shown the equations (just so you know they exist and can see how difficult they are), but you are never asked to solve them.

We start with the easiest topics such as:

The Quantum Mystery (Kindle Single)

The Quantum Mystery (Kindle Single)

What Richard Feynman described as “the central mystery” of quantum physics is encapsulated in the experiment with two holes, also known as the double-slit experiment. In this experiment, a particle going through one of a pair of holes seems to be aware of what is going on at the other hole, and changes its behaviour according to whether that hole is open or closed. This is closely linked to the puzzle of entanglement, where one particle instantly reacts to what is happening to another...

Quantum Mechanics 1: Particles and Waves (Everyone's Guide Series Book 3)
by Real Science Publishing

With this book you begin exploring the mysterious world of Quantum Mechanics — two words that have for over 100 years struck terror in the hearts of both physics students and the general public. As we shall see, the behavior of nature is remarkably surprising in the micro-world of molecules, atoms, and everything smaller yet. But this should be a surprise of wonder instead of terror. For most of us, nature is also surprising on the savannahs of Serengeti, but who wouldn't delight in seeing...
