**In Search of Quantum Reality**

by John R. Boccio

**Publisher**: Swarthmore College 2014**Number of pages**: 693

**Description**:

Quantum mechanics is a collection of postulates based on a huge number of experimental observations and the set of tools and ideas derived from those postulates. In this book you will learn now the quantum world works, why it must work in this particular way, and how we might understand it.
