Consistent Quantum Theory

Consistent Quantum Theory

This volume elucidates the consistent quantum theory approach to quantum mechanics at a level accessible to university students in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, making this an ideal supplement to standard textbooks. Griffiths provides a clear explanation of points not yet adequately treated in traditional texts and which students find confusing, as do their teachers. The book will also be of interest to physicists and philosophers working on the foundations of quantum mechanics.


"Students, teachers and researchers familiar with or interested in issues of interpretation of quantum mechanics will enjoy this book." Choice

"The book is systematic and clear. The conceptual framework of the consistent histories approach is sharply delinerated, there is an abundance of examples, open questions are honestly identified, and there are references to more detailed studies. I think it is the best book on consistent histories thus far, indispensable for those who want to understand this interpretation of quantum mechanics." Mathematical Reviews
