Quantum chance and non-locality : probability and non-locality in the interpretations of quantum mechanics by Michael Dickson( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines in detail two of the fundamental questions raised by quantum mechanics. Is the world indeterministic? Are there connections between spatially separated objects? In the first part of the book after outlining the formalism of quantum mechanics and introducing the measurement problem, the author examines several interpretations, focusing on how each proposes to solve the measurement problem and on how each treats probability. In the second part, the author argues that there can be non-trivial relationships between probability (specifically, determinism and indeterminism) and non-locality in an interpretation of quantum mechanics. The author then re-examines some of the interpretations of part one of the book in the light of this argument, and considers how they are with regard to locality and Lorentz invariance. One of the important lessons that comes out of this discussion is that any examination of locality, and of the relationship between quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, should be undertaken in the context of a detailed interpretation of quantum mechanics. The book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the interpretation of quantum mechanics, including researchers in the philosophy of physics and theoretical physics, as well as graduate students in those fields
Discourse on a new method : reinvigorating the marriage of history and philosophy of science by Mary Domski( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing a wide range of topics, from Newton to Post-Kuhnian philosophy of science, these essays critically examine themes that have been central to the influential work of philosopher Michael Friedman. Special focus is given to Friedman's revealing study of both history of science and philosophy in his work on Kant, Newton, Einstein, and other major figures. This interaction of history and philosophy is the subject of the editors' "manifesto" and serves to both explain and promote the essential ties between two disciplines usually regarded as unrelated

Enrollment and report of the "Black Brigade," of Cincinnati by William M Dickson( Book )

The absolute equality of all men before the law, the only true basis of reconstruction by William M Dickson( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A statement of the benefits of immediately granting suffrage to the former slaves of the South at a time of debate over a constitutional amendment to do just that. Dickson argues that suffrage is the crucial right by which southern blacks will advance to good citizenship and ensure themselves equality before the law. Noteworthy is the letter from John Stuart Mill in which Mill agrees with Dickson

Is there really no projection postulate in the modal interpretation? by Michael Dickson( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Modal interpretations of quantum mechanics admit two kinds of state: physical states, which specify the values of observables on a system, and theoretical states, which specify a probability distribution over possible physical states. They appear to use this distinction to deny the projection postulate, claiming that collapse corresponds only to a change from discussing the theoretical state to discussing the physical state. I argue that modal interpretations should adpt a projection postulate at the level of the theoretical state. However, other features of modal interpretation migh render the projection postulate immune from the usual objections
