Structure and Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics by R. I. G. Hughes

Book Description

This work provides an account of the philosophical foundations of quantum theory that should become a text for scientists and nonscientists alike. Hughes offers a detailed and accessible analysis for the Hilbert-space models used in quantum theory and explains why they are so successful. He goes on to show how the very suitability of Hilbert spaces for modelling the quantum world gives rise to deep problems of interpretation, and makes suggestions about how they can be overcome.
