Quantum Physics: Illusion or Reality?

Written on December 24, 2011. Written by .

The first four chapters of this book are a good introduction to quantum physics that is specific unlike many other books, so you get a feeling for the actual experiments rather than just a concealing explanation. Then the main point of the book begins with the explanation of the Copenhagen Interpretation, which says that it is meaningless to talk of quantum properties without measuring them. This leads to the problem of what it means to measure something and the next few chapters overview some foolish ideas that can be used to resolve it. There is quite a bit of philosophical material, which isn’t really worth reading considering that its wrong, but he progresses to more feasible explanations including one in which measurement is set at the level of a non-reversible process like the generation of heat.
