This book concludes our exploration of Quantum
Mechanics in the Everyone’s Guide Series.
Here, we discuss the outstanding mysteries of Quantum Mechanics and the
meaning of Reality. Our topics include:
We also explore frontier
applications of Quantum Mechanics:
- EPR paradox
- Parallel Universes /
- Bohm’s pilot waves
- Bell’s Inequality
- Tests of Locality
Quantization & the Planck scale
- Rovelli’s Relational
- Cosmology and Loop
- Quantum Computing
1964, Irish physicist John Stewart Bell devised a test to determine
whether or not particle spins are well defined before they are
measured. His clever idea requires measuring how the two spins
correlate when measured in different directions.
Mechanics and classical physics both say spin-measuring devices
oriented in the same direction will report opposite spin values. But
things get more interesting when the devices are pointing in different
directions, as in the above sketch.
