Nie wieder Krieg! Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ist den Nationen dieser Erde klar: so etwas darf nie wieder passieren! In der Folge verbessert sich die internationale Zusammenarbeit, die Unterschiede zwischen den Religionen, den Hautfarben, zwischen Ost und West verschwinden im folgenden Jahrhundert immer mehr. Das missfällt vor allem den reichen Industriedynastien, den modernen Aristokraten, die in einem neuen Krieg unermessliche Profite einfahren würden. In den 2020er-Jahren haben sie endgültig genug: sie bauen im Geheimen einen Zeitmaschine und reisen rund hundert Jahre in die Vergangenheit, um sich eines gewissen Adolf Hitlers anzunehmen, dessen radikale Partei nach einem gescheiterten Putschversuch in München in Vergessenheit geraten ist ...

Understanding Our Unseen Reality Solving Quantum Riddles

Author: Kastner Ruth E
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9781783266487
Release Date: 2015-02-26
Genre: Science

This captivating book presents a new, unified picture of the everyday world around us. It provides rational, scientific support for the idea that there may well be more to our reality than meets the eye…Accessible and engaging for readers with no prior knowledge of quantum physics, author Ruth Kastner draws on the popular transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics to explain our ‘quantum reality.’ Her book focuses on modern-day examples and deals with big philosophical questions as well as ideas from physics.If you have any interest in quantum physics, this book is for you — whether you be a physics student or academic, or simply an inquisitive reader who wants to delve deeper into the reality of the world around you. Dr Ruth Kastner has received two National Science Foundation awards for the study of interpretational issues in quantum theory.

The Quantum Handshake

Author: John G. Cramer
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319246420
Release Date: 2015-12-23
Genre: Science

This book shines bright light into the dim recesses of quantum theory, where the mysteries of entanglement, nonlocality, and wave collapse have motivated some to conjure up multiple universes, and others to adopt a "shut up and calculate" mentality. After an extensive and accessible introduction to quantum mechanics and its history, the author turns attention to his transactional model. Using a quantum handshake between normal and time-reversed waves, this model provides a clear visual picture explaining the baffling experimental results that flow daily from the quantum physics laboratories of the world. To demonstrate its powerful simplicity, the transactional model is applied to a collection of counter-intuitive experiments and conceptual problems.

Do We Really Understand Quantum Mechanics

Author: Franck Laloë
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781108758963
Release Date: 2019-02-14
Genre: Science

Quantum mechanics impacts on many areas of physics from pure theory to applications. However it is difficult to interpret, and philosophical contradictions and counter-intuitive results are apparent at a fundamental level. This book presents current understanding of the theory, providing a historical introduction and discussing many of its interpretations. Fully revised from the first edition, this book contains state-of-the-art research including loophole-free experimental Bell test, and theorems on the reality of the wave function including the PBR theorem, and a new section on quantum simulation. More interpretations are now included, and these are described and compared, including discussion of their successes and difficulties. Other sections have been expanded, including quantum error correction codes and the reference section. It is ideal for researchers in physics and maths, and philosophers of science interested in quantum physics and its foundations.
