About the book
During the twentieth century as science developed the means to study successively smaller length scales, it has become clear that physics must evolve in a new way to what was present before to successfully account for what is observed at small length scales. In some phenomena, quantum effects manifested at a microscopic level have repercussions that manifest themselves at much larger length scales, and thus it has been applied to things at ordinary lengthscales and even larger such as certain types of stars.
Quantum mechanics arose in 1924 and was developed by scientists such as Einstein, Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, Born, Dirac, and many others.
Quantum mechanics has subsequently been applied to many of the phenomenon physicist studies, such as atoms, molecules, nuclei, and even neutron stars, superfluids, and elementary particles. It is hoped this book will be able to examine both the mathematical and conceptual aspects of quantum physics by presenting papers that discuss both its mathematical basis and philosophical interpretation. It is hoped this new collection of papers will stimulate the study and expansion of this area of modern physics.
