Quantum philosophy : understanding and interpreting contemporary science by Roland Omnès( )

41 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 2,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roland Omnes takes us from the academies of ancient Greece to the laboratories of modern science as he seeks to do no less than rebuild the foundations of the philosophy of knowledge. One of the world's leading quantum physicists, Omnes reviews the history and recent development of mathematics, logic, and the physical sciences to show that current work in quantum theory offers new answers to questions that have puzzled philosophers for centuries: Is the world ultimately intelligible? Are all events caused? Do objects have definitive locations? Omnes addresses these profound questions with vigorous arguments and clear, colorful writing, aiming not just to advance scholarship but to enlighten readers with no background in science or philosophy."--Jacket

The interpretation of quantum mechanics by Roland Omnès( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interpretation of quantum mechanics has been controversial since the introduction of quantum theory in the 1920s. Although the Copenhagen interpretation is commonly accepted, its usual formulation suffers from some serious drawbacks. Based mainly on Bohr's concepts, the formulation assumes an independent and essential validity of classical concepts running in parallel with quantum ones, and leaves open the possibility of their ultimate conflict. In this book, Roland Omnès examines a number of recent advances, which, combined, lead to a consistent revision of the Copenhagen interpretation. His aim is to show how this interpretation can fit all present experiments, to weed out unnecessary or questionable assumptions, and to assess the domain of validity where the older statements apply. Drawing on the new contributions, The Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics offers a complete and self-contained treatment of interpretation (in nonrelativistic physics) in a manner accessible to both physicists and students. Although some "hard" results are included, the concepts and mathematical developments are maintained at an undergraduate level. This book enables readers to check every step, apply the techniques to new problems, and make sure that no paradox or obscurity can arise in the theory. In the conclusion, the author discusses various philosophical implications pertinent to the study of quantum mechanics
Understanding quantum mechanics by Roland Omnes( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here Roland Omnes offers a clear, up-to-date guide to the conceptual framework of quantum mechanics. In an area that has provoked much philosophical debate, Omnes has achieved high recognition for his Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics (Princeton 1994), a book for specialists. Now the author has transformed his own theory into a short and readable text that enables beginning students and experienced physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers to form a comprehensive picture of the field while learning about the most recent advances
Introduction to particle physics by Roland Omnès( Book )

38 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mandelstam theory and Regge poles: an introduction for experimentalists by R Omnès( Book )

Converging realities : toward a common philosophy of physics and mathematics by Roland Omnès( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The philosophical relationship between mathematics and the natural sciences is the subject of Converging Realities, the latest work by one of the leading thinkers on the subject. Based on a simple but powerful idea, it shows that the axioms needed for the mathematics used in physics can also generate practically every field of contemporary pure mathematics. It also provides a foundation for current investigations in string theory and other areas of physics."--Jacket
L univers et ses metamorphoses by Roland Omnès( Book )

Faute de vraiment pénétrer la signification de la science, on ne peut rien comprendre du monde moderne autrement qu'en surface. Ce livre conduit le lecteur au coeur même de la science, classique et contemporaine et le guide à la rencontre des lois. Il explique pourquoi les lois de la nature sont transcendantes, en montrant que la science ne les invente pas mais qu'elle les découvre
Physique atomique et connaissance humaine by Niels Bohr( Book )
