9780521482202: Einstein, Bohr and the Quantum Dilemma

The debate between Bohr and Einstein, which raged in the 1920s and 1930s, but which is still highly relevant today, involved the two greatest physicists of the twentieth century, and played a large part in Einstein, perhaps the most famous scientist ever, going into effective scientific exile. The debate concerned the quantum theory, probably the most successful physical theory of all time, and this book explores the details of the conflict, as well as its significance for contemporary views on the foundations of quantum theory. The author gives sympathetic accounts of the views of both Bohr and Einstein, and a thorough study of the argument between them. The book also includes non-technical and non-mathematical accounts of the development of quantum theory and relativity, and also the work of David Bohm and John Bell in the 1950s and 1960s that restored interest in Einstein's views. Also included is a full account of the many current experimental and theoretical developments on quantum theory.

Recensione:

'This book is a potential block-buster. Written in a nice style, structured like a popular lecture, its language is lucid and the contents well selected … it has the most thorough coverage and clear explanation of classical physics that I have read for a long time … It has additonally the advantages of being well-researched, with the latest available material … and written by a first rate physicist with excellent communication skills.' Samar Jha, The Statesman

'Whitaker's book is admirably clear and deceptively simple: he has a real knack of describing difficult ideas in an accessible form. He is up-to-date, never descends to the facile level so often adopted by writers of introductory books, and what's more, has provided a thorough bibliography so that the really interested reader can find the original treatment. I recommend this book not only for students but for anyone with an interest in fundamental issues in physics.' P. L. Knight, Journal of Modern Optics

'I most strongly recommend this book to anyone - lay person, student and professional alike - interested in the foundations of our candidate for the fundamental theory of physics (quantum mechanics).' James T. Cushing, The Times Higher Education Supplement
