Download Philosophie der Quantenphysik: Einführung und Diskussion der by Cord Friebe,Meinard Kuhlmann,Holger Lyre,Paul Näger,Oliver PDF

By Cord Friebe,Meinard Kuhlmann,Holger Lyre,Paul Näger,Oliver Passon,Manfred Stöckler

Die Quantentheorie zeichnet sich durch spektakuläre empirische Erfolge aus. Gleichzeitig ist bis heute höchst strittig, wie sie sich auf Dinge und Eigenschaften in der Welt bezieht. Dabei stellen sich viele weitere philosophische Herausforderungen: Verletzen Quantenobjekte das Prinzip der Kausalität? Sind gleichartige Teilchen ununterscheidbar und daher keine Individuen? Behalten Quantenobjekte in der zeitlichen Entwicklung ihre Identität? Wie verhält sich ein zusammengesetztes Quantensystem zu seinen Teilen? Diese Fragen werden im Rahmen verschiedener Deutungsansätze der Quantentheorie diskutiert. Ein Ausblick in die Quantenfeldtheorie verschärft das Hauptproblem der Nichtlokalität.


Das Buch will fortgeschrittene Studierende der Philosophie in die Grundlagen der Quantenphysik einführen. Zugleich konfrontiert es Physikerinnen und Physiker mit den philosophischen Fragen ihres Faches. Punktuell kann es auch den gymnasialen Physik-Unterricht bereichern.

Download The Iceberg Principles: The Truth About The Universe And by Marni Spencer-Devlin PDF

By Marni Spencer-Devlin

The Iceberg Principles are an idea that illustrates the reality of who we're as human beings.
As with an iceberg, basically four% people exhibits. Our actual DNA describes us however it doesn't relatively outline who we're. Our skills and strengths, issues we adore, our detailed presents and quirks - these are the ninety six% that outline us and people issues are invisible.
We exist to precise what lies within the ninety six% within the 4%; in basic terms during this means will we suppose whole.
When we expect we're not anything greater than what exhibits within the reflect we're separated from ourselves and everybody else; lonely and uncovered to the hazards. existence is ready pageant. We examine ourselves to others and continuously one way or the other we arise short.
When we forget about or suppress the presents and skills in our ninety six% we event depression. We think anxiety simply because we all know deep down that there's extra to us and we're losing our existence. We consider out of sync and at last we turn out in dis-ease, which explanations actual and emotional discomfort, and that's the root of addictions like overeating, alcohol and drugs misuse - prescription or differently, or even smoking.
When we domesticate what lies in our ninety six% we faucet into an inexhaustible storehouse of inner strength, vitality and energy. once we honor our presents and hone our skills we do what we like and lifestyles turns into passionate. We profit and so does everybody else round us. once we love and honor ourselves our relationships instantly turn into extra loving. lifestyles is not any longer approximately unmet wishes yet approximately what we need to proportion with the realm. Then we open up the flood gates to abundance and affluence. Ease and harmony succeed and existence turns into so strong that we've got to pinch ourselves. every little thing that we hope as people is true at our fingertips and there's now not something we have to swap to get it. to the contrary, The Iceberg Principles express that during order to suppose entire we needs to become extra of who we already are.

Download A Short Course in Quantum Information Theory: An Approach by Lajos Diosi PDF

By Lajos Diosi

This brief and concise primer takes the vantage aspect of theoretical physics and the cohesion of physics. It units out to strip the burgeoning box of quantum info technology to its fundamentals through linking it to common thoughts in physics. an in depth lecture instead of a finished textbook, this quantity is predicated on classes brought over numerous years to complicated undergraduate and starting graduate scholars, yet basically it addresses a person with a operating wisdom of simple quantum physics. Readers will locate those lectures a so much sufficient access element for theoretical reviews during this box.
For the second one variation, the authors has succeeded in including many new issues whereas sticking to the conciseness of the final strategy. a brand new bankruptcy on qubit thermodynamics has been extra, whereas new sections and subsections were integrated in quite a few bankruptcy to accommodate susceptible and time-continuous measurements, period-finding quantum algorithms and quantum mistakes corrections.
From the reports of the 1st edition:
"The most sensible issues approximately this e-book are its brevity and readability. In round a hundred pages it presents an educational creation to quantum info concept, together with difficulties and strategies. … it’s worthy a glance with a view to quick wake up to hurry with the language and primary techniques of quantum details concept, together with the historical past classical info theory."

Download Quantum Theory and Free Will: How Mental Intentions by Henry P. Stapp PDF

By Henry P. Stapp

This e-book explains, in basic yet exact phrases, how orthodox quantum mechanics works. the writer, a exclusive theoretical physicist, exhibits how this conception, realistically interpreted, assigns a tremendous function to our wakeful loose choices. Stapp claims that mainstream biology and neuroscience, regardless of approximately a century of quantum physics, nonetheless stick basically to failed classical precepts within which psychological intentions don't have any impression upon our physically activities. He exhibits how quantum mechanics offers a rational foundation for a greater figuring out of this connection, even permitting a proof of sure phenomena at the moment held to be “paranormal”. those rules have significant implications for our figuring out of ourselves and our psychological approaches, and hence additionally for the meaningfulness of our lives.

This ebook displays at the major and hugely unique medical contributions of Hans Primas. A professor of chemistry at ETH Zurich from 1962 to 1995, Primas persisted his examine actions until eventually his demise in 2014. Over those 50 years and extra, he labored at the foundations of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, contributed to a few major matters in theoretical chemistry, helped to explain relevant issues in quantum conception and the philosophy of physics, recommended leading edge methods of addressing interlevel family members within the philosophy of technological know-how, and brought state-of-the-art ways within the flourishing younger box of clinical reviews of attention. His paintings in those components of study and its carrying on with influence is defined by way of famous specialists, colleagues, and collaborators of Primas. All authors contextualize their contributions to facilitate the mutual conversation among those fields.

the superb actual tale in regards to the medical discovery that we're some distance higher, way more appealing and much extra strong than we believe...and how a small staff of volunteers used that strength to alter the world.

This ebook provides a brand new speculation approximately our real nature and demonstrates how, if we learn issues via this new paradigm, loads of questions that we have got been asking ourselves for 2000 years unexpectedly locate extremely simple answers.

Along with this new paradigm come new strategies. This ebook will reveal confirmed clinical ideas to:

- rework our healthcare procedure to a process the place humans can heal themselves

- rework schooling to a procedure the place young children strengthen their complete mind potential

- carry an finish to all wars, terrorism, crime and an issue of weeks if we'd like to

- shop loads funds within the procedure that our governments could simply be ready to decrease our taxes.
