This book presents the current views of leading physicists on the bizarre property of quantum theory: nonlocality. Einstein viewed this theory as 'spooky action at a distance' which, together with randomness, resulted in him being unable to accept quantum theory. The contributions in the book describe, in detail, the bizarre aspects of nonlocality, such as Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering and quantum teleportation -- a phenomenon which cannot be explained in the framework of classical physics, due its foundations in quantum entanglement.

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard linear algebra are required.

Quantum transients are temporary features of matter waves before they reach a stationary regime. Transients may arise after the preparation of an unstable initial state or due to a sudden interaction or a change in the boundary conditions.

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the Bohmian formulation of quantum mechanics. After a historical review, a formal explanation of Bohmian mechanics for nonrelativistic, single-particle quantum systems is presented.
