1 - 2 weeks availability
This book is intended as a tutorial approach to some of the techniques used to deal with quantum dissipation and irreversibility, with special focus on their applications to the theory of measurements. The main purpose is to provide readers without a deep expertise in quantum statistical mechanics with the basic tools to develop a critical judgement on whether the major achievements in this field have to be considered a satisfactory solution of quantum paradox, or rather this ambitious achievement has to be postponed to when a new physics, more general than quantum and classical physics, will be discovered.
The conventional theory of measurement; towards the statistical interpretation of quantum mechanics; influence of the environment; nonlinear relaxation; chaos and statistical mechanics; chaos and theory of measurement; conclusions; solution of quantum mechanical paradox or discovery of an avenue to a new physics.
