**The Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics**

by

**Gerard 't Hooft**-

**Springer**

This book presents the deterministic view of quantum mechanics developed by Gerard 't Hooft. 't Hooft has revived the old hidden variable ideas, but now in a much more systematic way. Quantum mechanics is viewed as a tool rather than a theory.
