The quantum measurement problem: why a unique outcome is obtained in each individual experiment, is currently tackled by solving models. After a general introduction, we review the many models proposed. Next, a flexible and realistic quantum model is introduced, describing the measurement of the z-component of a spin through interaction with a magnetic memory simulated by a Curie-Weiss magnet, including N >>1 spins coupled to a phonon bath.

With the development of the quantum information interpretation of quantum mechanics, the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version. It is this view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.

These lectures describe the basic theoretical structures underlying the quantum Hall effect. The focus is on the interplay between microscopic wavefunctions, long-distance effective Chern-Simons theories, and the modes which live on the boundary.

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.
