Quantum mechanics: an empiricist's view

After introducing the empiricist perspective in philosophy of technology, and the suggestions and techniques of the semantic method of medical theories, van Fraassen discusses quantum concept in 3 levels. He first examines the query of even if and the way empirical phenomena require a non-classical concept, and how much thought they require.

Foundations of Quantum Mechanics I

This publication is the 1st quantity of a two-volume paintings at the Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, and is meant as a brand new version of the author's publication Die Grundlagen der Quantenmechanik [37] which was once released in 1954. during this two-volume paintings we'll search to acquire a far better formula of the translation of quantum mechanics in accordance with experiments.

Quantum versus Chaos: Questions Emerging from Mesoscopic Cosmos

Quantum and chaos, key ideas in modern technology, are incompatible via nature. This quantity offers an research into quantum delivery in mesoscopic or nanoscale platforms that are classically chaotic and indicates the good fortune and failure of quantal, semiclassical, and random matrix theories in facing questions rising from the mesoscopic cosmos.

7] by deriving properly constructed absorbing potentials and, more basically, by Werner [34]. Blanchard and Jadczyk developed their event- enhanced quantum theory that is based on the use of complex potentials in the time evolution to explain the occurrence of events and their timing [79, 80]. In contrast to a phenomenological introduction of absorbing potentials into the Schr¨odinger equation, Halliwell presented a more realistic two-channel detector model [22] in which the initially excited detector decays due to the presence of the particle.

Kinetic energy densities are present in the Thomas-Fermi theory [104], in density functional theory to determine the electronic structure of atoms, molecules, solids or fermionic gases [105], in partitioning molecular systems into fragments with well defined energies [106, 107] or to define intrinsic shapes of reactants, transition states, and products along the course of a chemical reaction [108]. In analogy to Eq. 3), the classical expression for the phase space variable related to the local kinetic energy density at x is K(x) = p2 δ(q − x).

88) Assuming that the delay problem is solved by this construction, one clearly attempts to simultaneously minimize reflections. This can be done by considering the limit γ → ∞ of Eq. 75). In that case, one has in leading order 1 W (ν) ∼ iνγ , Ω2 iΩ2 → 0, 2γ iγ ∼ − → ∞, 2 imΩ2 ∼ k+ → k, 2 kγ λ+ ∼ − λ− k+ k− ∼ q ∼ imγ , C− , R1 , R2 → 0, C+ → 1, (2) γ → ∞. 89) (2) Thus, γφk (x)φk (x) is exponentially damped for x ≤ 0, whereas for x ≥ 0 only the terms with k+ survive, leading to (2) (2) γφk (x)φk (x) ∼ Ω2 −i(k¯+ −k+ )x e Θ(x), 2πγ γ → ∞.
