In this module we will spend twoweeks to study some implications of microscopic physics on the question of measurement. Since today's understanding of microscopic physics is best modeled by quantum theory, people often refer to this as quantum (description of) measurement (theory).
Most of our study will be based on the above links to our webbook. But we will also use other readings and webbased materials. These include:
Supplementary Text: Where Does the Weirdness Go? by David Linley, Basic Books, NY, 1996
ComputerBased Material: Visual Quantum Mechanics, an interactive software developed by Dean Zollman and his educational research team at Kansas State University. To get direct access to this site click on: VQM.
