"... We report on specific actions undertaken to promote active learning in an introductory course on quantum physics that presented the following challenges: (1) quantum ideas surprise and contradict common sense beliefs and background knowledge; (2) it is hard to study the interactions of matter and ra ..."

Quantum Gravity
, 2004
"... We describe the basic assumptions and key results of loop quantum gravity, which is a background independent approach to quantum gravity. The emphasis is on the basic physical principles and how one deduces predictions from them, at a level suitable for physicists in other areas such as string theor ..."

Algorithms for Quantum Computation: Discrete Logarithms and Factoring
, 1994
"... A computer is generally considered to be a universal computational device; i.e., it is believed able to simulate any physical computational device with a cost in computation time of at most a polynomial factol: It is not clear whether this is still true when quantum mechanics is taken into consider ..."

Logic and quantum physics
 Journal of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research
, 2011
"... Current research in Logic is no longer confined to the traditional study of logical consequence or valid inference. As can be witnessed by the range of topics covered in this special issue, the subject matter of logic encompasses several kinds of informational processes ranging from proofs and infer ..."

and inferences to dialogues, observations, measurements, communication and computation. What interests us here is its application to quantum physics: how does logic handle informational processes such as observations and measurements of quantum systems? What are the basic logical principles fit to handle
TOPOLOGY CHANGE AND QUANTUM PHYSICS
, 1995
"... The role of topology in elementary quantum physics is discussed in detail. It is argued that attributes of classical spatial topology emerge from properties of state vectors with suitably smooth time evolution. Equivalently, they emerge from considerations on the domain of the quantum Hamiltonian, t ..."

MEASUREMENT IN QUANTUM PHYSICS
, 1997
"... The conceptual problems in quantum mechanics – related to the collapse of the wave function, the particlewave duality, the meaning of measurement – arise from the need to ascribe particle character to the wave function. As will be shown, all these problems dissolve when working instead with quantum ..."

with quantum fields, which have both wave and particle character. Otherwise the predictions of quantum physics, including Bell’s inequalities, coincide with those of the conventional treatments. The transfer of the results of the quantum measurement to the classical realm is also discussed. 1
PolynomialTime Algorithms for Prime Factorization and Discrete Logarithms on a Quantum Computer
 SIAM J. on Computing
, 1997
"... A digital computer is generally believed to be an efficient universal computing device; that is, it is believed able to simulate any physical computing device with an increase in computation time by at most a polynomial factor. This may not be true when quantum mechanics is taken into consideration. ..."

SOME ASPECTS OF QUANTUM PHYSICS
"... I discuss some questions of quantum physics, for instance the validity and limitations of the basic language of set theory to deal with problems related to elementary particles. I also present a sketch of a formalization of a “metaphysics of structures”, which might be useful for a kind of “ontic ..."
