By Philippe Blanchard, Arkadiusz Jadczyk

This quantity provides specific discussions of a couple of unsolved conceptual and technical concerns coming up, particularly, within the foundations of quantum thought and the philosophy of technology. The 14 contributions seize a large choice of viewpoints and backgrounds. a few chapters deal basically with the most experimental matters; others specialise in theoretical and philosophical questions. additionally, makes an attempt are made to systematically research ways that quantum physics will be attached to the neurosciences and cognizance examine.

Glashow-Weinberg-Salam theory of electroweak interactions and their neutral currents

Within the first a part of the assessment we expound intimately the unified thought of vulnerable and electromagnetic interactions of Glashow, Weinberg and Salam within the moment half, at the foundation of this idea many of the impartial present caused approaches are mentioned We examine intimately the deep inelastic scattenng of neutnnos on nucleons, the P-odd asymmetry within the deep inelastic scattering of longitudinally polarized electrons by way of nucleons, the scattenng of neutnnos on electrons, the elastic scattenng of neutnnos on nucleons, and the electron-positron annihilation into leptons

Quantum Signatures of Chaos

This by way of now vintage textual content presents a great creation and survey to the regularly increasing box of quantum chaos . the themes taken care of comprise a close exploration of the quantum points of nonlinear dynamics, quantum standards to differentiate standard and abnormal movement, antiunitary symmetries (generalized time reversal), random matrix conception and a radical account of the quantum mechanics of dissipative structures.

Quantum Field Theo Point Particle

The aim of this ebook is to introduce string thought with no assuming any heritage in quantum box idea. half I of this booklet follows the improvement of quantum box conception for aspect debris, whereas half II introduces strings. the entire instruments and ideas which are had to quantize strings are constructed first for aspect debris.

We want to indicate next a possible connection of the Maslov canonical operator (cf. [694]) with semiclassical soliton theory.

3. The restriction A E S 1 with p2 + q2 = 1 is not pleasing. One could in principle work with general A and exp[Aat(e) - A-la(e)] but the nice geometry of coherent state theory would seem to be lost or seriously compromised. 63) 4)@d4 This enters then the realm of coherent state transforms, oscillatory integrals, Weyl-WignerMoyal theory, etc. (cf.
