The author has spent his life in an obsessive quest to understand the nature of reality and the purpose of existence. Many would say this is a symptom of Asperger s syndrome, a high functioning form of autism. While I certainly fit this profile I believe there is a different more amazing reason. If an individual actualizes their potential in this space-time it is also actualized in the Singularity the space-less, time-less part of the dual universe at the quantum level. Each step of my life has led to find the answers because in the Singularity I had already found them. Here are the answers to God, the universe, and everything, I give them to you now because you are in desperate need of them, do with them what you will. Buy the book or not, read the book or not, I do not care, for I have completed my task and fulfilled my destiny, and that is all that matters. But if you do read the book be prepared for a remarkable vision of the nature of reality, and a magnificent purpose of existence illustrated with poetry and painting.

Bohmian Mechanics

Bohmian Mechanics was formulated in 1952 by David Bohm as a complete theory of quantum phenomena based on a particle picture. It was promoted some decades later by John S. Bell, who, intrigued by the manifestly nonlocal structure of the theory, was led to his famous Bell's inequalities. Experimental tests of the inequalities verified that nature is indeed nonlocal. Bohmian mechanics has since then prospered as the straightforward completion of quantum mechanics. This book provides a systematic introduction to Bohmian mechanics and to the mathematical abstractions of quantum mechanics, which range from the self-adjointness of the Schrödinger operator to scattering theory. It explains how the quantum formalism emerges when Boltzmann's ideas about statistical mechanics are applied to Bohmian mechanics. The book is self-contained, mathematically rigorous and an ideal starting point for a fundamental approach to quantum mechanics. It will appeal to students and newcomers to the field, as well as to established scientists seeking a clear exposition of the theory.

There is an uncanny resemblance between Christianity in the middle ages and Physics in the twenty-first century. Formerly, the common man could neither read nor understand the scriptures, as they were written in Latin; the clergy had to interpret the scriptures for the laity with predictable results. Physics in the twenty-first century is similar. Only mathematicians with doctoral degree can understand the universe and how it works, to the rest of mankind the universe is an area of darkness. This is not by any means a desirable development. As human beings, we are all sentient individuals and as such are expected to enquire about our environment, the world around us, and the universe we live in. On a fundamental philosophical basis, it is wrong to believe that such knowledge, whether by circumstance or by design, is limited to a privileged few. This book explains the universe for the first time in a way that is comprehensible to everyone. Neo-classical physics undertakes the study of the behaviour of the universe as an entity, and the physics of sub-atomic particles is easy to understand in everyday terms. Neo-classical physics is the language that sets you free – free to see, free to comprehend and free to wonder anew.

An Exploration of the Physical Meaning of Quantum Theory

Authored by an acclaimed teacher of quantum physics and philosophy, this textbook pays special attention to the aspects that many courses sweep under the carpet. Traditional courses in quantum mechanics teach students how to use the quantum formalism to make calculations. But even the best students - indeed, especially the best students - emerge rather confused about what, exactly, the theory says is going on, physically, in microscopic systems. This supplementary textbook is designed to help such students understand that they are not alone in their confusions (luminaries such as Albert Einstein, Erwin Schroedinger, and John Stewart Bell having shared them), to sharpen their understanding of the most important difficulties associated with interpreting quantum theory in a realistic manner, and to introduce them to the most promising attempts to formulate the theory in a way that is physically clear and coherent. The text is accessible to students with at least one semester of prior exposure to quantum (or "modern") physics and includes over a hundred engaging end-of-chapter "Projects" that make the book suitable for either a traditional classroom or for self-study.

Modern fabrication techniques have made it possible to produce semiconductor devices whose dimensions are so small that quantum mechanical effects dominate their behavior. This book describes the key elements of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and solid-state physics that are necessary in understanding these modern semiconductor devices. The author begins with a review of elementary quantum mechanics, and then describes more advanced topics, such as multiple quantum wells. He then disusses equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. Following this introduction, he provides a thorough treatment of solid-state physics, covering electron motion in periodic potentials, electron-phonon interaction, and recombination processes. The final four chapters deal exclusively with real devices, such as semiconductor lasers, photodiodes, flat panel displays, and MOSFETs. The book contains many homework exercises and is suitable as a textbook for electrical engineering, materials science, or physics students taking courses in solid-state device physics. It will also be a valuable reference for practising engineers in optoelectronics and related areas.

Authored by a lecturer of quantum mechanics for students of electrical engineering and informatics for over 25 years, this textbook is scientifically sound and well-written, striking a balance between the formal mathematics necessary and informal prose. The introduction summarizes the basic concepts of classical physics and points out some of its failures, based on phenomena connected to lighting technology. These are analyzed in detail in the subsequent three chapters. Chapter 5 goes beyond the duality principle, and explains the particle concept of quantum mechanics and its consequences for electrical engineering, while chapters 6-8 introduce the mathematical construction used for describing the state of a particle and to predict its properties. The next two chapters present two examples of using this framework, with applications in light emitting diodes, infrared detectors, quantum cascade lasers, Zener diodes and flash memories. The final chapters then discuss some consequences of quantum mechanics for the chemical properties of atoms and for other many-electron systems, also providing a short insight into the potential hardware for quantum information processing. Among the host of didactic features are learning objectives, chapter summaries, self-testing questions, and problems with solutions, while the two appendices summarize the knowledge in classical physics and mathematics needed for this book.

Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett Quantum Mechanics aims to teach those parts of the subject which every physicist should know. The object is to display the inherent structure of quantum mechanics, concentrating on general principles and on methods of wide applicability without taking them to their full generality. This book will equip students to follow quantum-mechanical arguments in books and scientific papers, and to cope with simple cases. To bring the subject to life, the theory is applied to the all-important field of atomic physics. No prior knowledge of quantum mechanics is assumed. However, it would help most readers to have met some elementary wave mechanics before. Primarily written for students, it should also be of interest to experimental research workers who require a good grasp of quantum mechanics without the full formalism needed by the professional theorist. Quantum Mechanics features: A flow diagram allowing topics to be studied in different orders or omitted altogether. Optional "starred" and highlighted sections containing more advanced and specialized material for the more ambitious reader. Sets of problems at the end of each chapter to help student understanding. Hints and solutions to the problems are given at the end of the book.

The interpretation of quantum mechanics in this book is distinguished from other existing interpretations in that it is systematically derived from empirical facts by means of logical considerations as well as methods in the spirit of analytical philosophy, in particular operational semantics. The new interpretation, using a two-model approach overcomes the well-known conceptional problems and paradoxes of ?orthodox? quantum theory. This interdisciplinary book should be of interest to scholars, teachers, and students in the fields of physics and philosophy of science.

This book provides a clear and logical path to understanding what quantum mechanics is about. It will be accessible to undergraduates with minimal mathematical preparation: all that is required is an open mind, a little algebra, and a first course in undergraduate physics. Quantum mechanics is arguably the most successful physical theory. It makes predictions of incredible accuracy. It provides the structure underlying all of our electronic technology, and much of our mastery overmaterials. But compared with Newtonian mechanics, or even relativity, its teachings seem obscure--they have no counterpart in everyday experience, and they sometimes contradict our simplest notions of how the world works. A full understanding of the theory requires prior mastery of very advancedmathematics. This book aims at a different goal: to teach the reader, step by step, how the theory came to be and what, fundamentally, it is about. Most students learn physics by learning techniques and formulas. This is especially true in a field like quantum mechanics, whose content often contradicts our common sense, and where it's tempting to retreat into mathematical formalism. This book goes behind the formalism to explain in direct language the conceptual content and foundations ofquantum mechanics: the experiments that forced physicists to construct such a strange theory, and the essential elements of its strangeness.
