Non-locality and Possible World

This book uses the formal semantics of counterfactual conditionals to analyze the problem of non-locality in quantum mechanics. Counterfactual conditionals (subjunctive conditionals) enter the analysis of quantum entangled systems in that they enable us to precisely formulate the locality condition that purports to exclude the existence of causal interactions between spatially separated parts of a system.

In resisting attempts to explain the unity of a whole in terms of a multiplicity of interacting parts, quantum mechanics calls for an explanatory concept that proceeds in the opposite direction: from unity to multiplicity ...

The book gives a consequent and mathematical formulation to the interpretation of quantum mechanics that is often met among practical physicists. The book ought to be accessible to students that finished the standard course of quantum mechanics.

This undergraduate-level text applies quantum mechanics to some chemical and physical problems, covering wave functions for the hydrogen atom, perturbation theory, the Pauli exclusion principle, and the structure of simple and complex molecules.

This book deals with the kinematics of diffusion processes. The dynamical equations are derived from a variational principle, and interference, the asymptotics of free motion, bound states, statistics, and spin are described in classical terms.
