The Emergence of Bohmian Mechanics: Dialectical Materialism and the Construction of a new Quantum Theory

In 1951 David Bohm created a realistic interpretation of quantum theory in contradiction to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics in which the quantum More The Emergence of Bohmian Mechanics: Dialectical Materialism and the Construction of a new Quantum Theory

The Advent of Quantum Field Theoretical Methods in Solid State Physics

When in 1957, as a side-product of their consulting work on thermonuclear fusion, Murray Gell-Mann and Keith A. Brueckner published their calculation of the ground-state energy of the interacting electron gas in the high-density limit More The Advent of Quantum Field Theoretical Methods in Solid State Physics

Engineering the Entanglement: Quantum Computation, Quantum Communication, and Re-conceptualizing Information

When Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) presented the famous two-particle thought experiment in 1935, their purpose was to demonstrate the incompleteness of quantum mechanics and to challenge the Copenhagen More Engineering the Entanglement: Quantum Computation, Quantum Communication, and Re-conceptualizing Information

The Problem of Quantum Mechanics’ Interpretation

Historically, there are mainly three orders of problems: 1) Dualism between theoretical description (unitary evolution) and experimental observations (reduction). 2) Unification of the behaviour of matter (which is apparently corpuscular) and light (which is apparently ondulatory) both in More The Problem of Quantum Mechanics’ Interpretation
