Book Description

This book aims to give students a good understanding of how Quantum Mechanics describes the material world. It shows that the theory follows naturally from the use of probability amplitudes to derive probabilities. It stresses that stationary states are unphysical mathematical abstractions that enable us to solve the theory's governing equation, the time-dependent Schroedinger equation.

Every opportunity is taken to illustrate the emergence of the familiar classical, dynamical world through the quantum interference of stationary states. The text stresses the continuity between the quantum world and the classical world, which is merely an approximation to the quantum world.

  • Quantum Mechanics Made Simple (Weng Cho Chew)

    The book at hand is meant to help you precisely with that: Understanding the basics of Quantum Mechanics, so that you can start asking the big questions and, with the help of modern physicists, find the answers to these questions as well.

  • The Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics

    This book presents the deterministic view of quantum mechanics developed by Nobel Laureate Gerard 't Hooft. The author gives examples of models that are classical in essence, but can be analysed by the use of quantum techniques.
