These are new and exciting ﬁelds of physics whose interests for those concerned with the foun-dations and conceptual status of quantum mechanics are manifold. On the experimental side, the focus on the ability to manipulate and control individual quantum systems,Cited by: This classic article reformulated the foundations of the statistical approach in mechanics. Largely still valid, the treatment is essential reading for serious students. Topics include the older formulation of statistico-mechanical investigations (kineto-statistics of the molecule), modern formulation of kineto-statistics of gas model, the work of W. B. Gibbs, and other subjects. cannot appreciate the depth of the conceptual problems posed by quantum mechanics. But there is another side of the coin concerning those theorems: ever since von Neumann introduced their ﬁrst version in his book on foundations of quantum mechanics [8], they have been often interpreted as vindicating the Copenhagen orthodoxy, namelyFile Size: KB.

Quantum foundations is a discipline of science that seeks to understand the most counter-intuitive aspects of quantum theory, reformulate it and even propose new generalizations thereof.

Contrary to other physical theories, such as general relativity, the defining axioms of quantum theory are quite ad hoc, with no obvious physical they lead to the right experimental predictions.
