Do we really understand quantum mechanics?
by

Publisher: Zuckschwerdt Publishers
Number of pages: 117

Description:
This text presents a general discussion of several aspects of our present understanding of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is put on the very special correlations that this theory makes possible: they are forbidden by very general arguments based on realism and local causality.

The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. We emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.
