Quantum Physics: From Illusion to Reality | Kindle Editionby Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing
The double-slit experiment has been widely discussed since the founding of quantum mechanics. Nearly all textbooks on quantum mechanics 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 the explanation of the counterintuitive experiment result. What does it 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 real picture of quantum reality. Can we find it now?It has been widely thought that the mystery of quantum mechanics can only be disclosed by future precise experiments. However, this is 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 real 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 both 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 ScienceThe 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, theoretical physicist, philosopher of science, Templeton Prize 2009 Laureate, author of Conceptual Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and On Physics and Philosophy
|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...
|God Does Play Dice with the Universe|
by arima publishing
Science has made a mighty advance since it originated in ancient Greece more than 2500 years ago. Yet we still live in Plato's cave today; we think everything around us moves continuously, but continuous motion is a mere shadow of the real motion. This book will lead you to the exit of the cave along a logical and comprehensible path. After passing Zeno's arrow, Newton's inertia, Einstein's light, and Schrödinger's cat, you will reach the real quantum world, where every thing in the universe,...
|The Particles of the Universe|
The universe is simply energy. Everything around us, including matter, is energy. A deep look into the mysteries of the subatomic world – the particles that make up the atom – provides answers to basic questions about how the universe works.
To solve the future of mankind’s energy needs we need to understand the basic building blocks of the universe, including the atom and its parts. By exploring the subatomic world we’ll find more answers to our questions about time,...
|Quantum Mechanics for the Rest of Us but not for Dummies: Quantum Theory Simplified|
You’ve heard of Quantum Mechanics but don’t really have any idea what it is. By the time you finish reading this book you will know what Quantum Mechanics is!
Written in everyday language, with pictures and diagrams to help you understand.
We take it step-by-step, starting with famous scientists, then classical physics, progressing to basic Quantum Mechanics and then the hard stuff.
We end with the philosophical implications of the burgeoning science.
|Hidden In Plain Sight: The simple link between relativity and quantum mechanics|
You never knew theoretical physics could be so simple! In this exciting and significant book, Andrew Thomas clearly illustrates the simplicity which lies behind nature at its fundamental level. It is revealed how all unifications in physics have been based on incredibly simple ideas.
Using a logical approach, it is explained how the great 20th century theories of relativity and quantum mechanics share a common base, and how they can be linked using an idea so simple that anyone can...
