Holism and Nonseparability in Physics
It has sometimes been suggested that quantum phenomena exhibit a characteristic holism or nonseparability, and that this distinguishes quantum from classical physics. One puzzling quantum phenomenon arises when one performs measurements of spin or polarization on certain separated quantum systems. The results of these measurements exhibit patterns of statistical correlation that resist traditional causal explanation. Some have held that it is possible to understand these patterns as instances or consequences of quantum holism or nonseparability. Just what holism and nonseparability are supposed to be has not always been made clear, though, and each of these notions has been understood in different ways. Moreover, while some have taken holism and nonseparability to come to the same thing, others have thought it important to distinguish the two. Any evaluation of the significance of quantum holism and/or nonseparability must rest on a careful analysis of these notions.

    General information
    Quantum theory was the greatest discovery in physics in the 20th century, comparable in importance only to the scientific revolution in the 17th century. Its very inconspicuous birth can be dated to December 14, 1900 when Max Planck presented the theoretical motivation for what has since been known as the Planck formula for black body radiation. Niels Bohr said: "In the history of Science there are few events, which, in the brief span of a generation, have had such extraordinary consequences as Planck's discovery of the elementary quantum of action. It has brought about a complete revision of the foundations underlying our description of natural phenomena." Today quantum theory is an essential foundation of science, from high-energy physics to cosmology, and applications based on quantum phenomena are found in an ever-expanding number of technologies.

    Quantum Theory
    Quantum theory grew out of a series of anomalies in the picture of matter and light offered by Newtonian physics - in particular associated with black-body radiation, the photo-electric effect , and the need to devise a model of the atom consistent with the newly discovered subatomic particles. Important principles of quantum theory include its statistical nature, and the uncertainty principle which sets a limit on our knowledge of physical systems. The implications of the theory for the nature of reality are much discussed (see Implications of the new physics). Most quantum theorists accept an intrinsic element of probability in fundamental physics, and also the need to see systems as wholes rather than merely dissecting them into their simplest components. Related Topics: Physics The empirical basis for quantum physics lies in such phenomena as blackbody radiation, the photoelectric effect, the specific heats of solids, the stability of the structure and the emission spectrum of atoms, all of which remained unexplainable in terms of classical physics. In 1901, Max Planck photons Einstein in 1905 explained the photoelectric effect as well as the specific heat two years later. In 1913

    90. What Is Quantum Physics
    What is quantum physics? It is only when both are seen that we find that quantum physicshas agreed with the experiment. So does this mean relativity is wrong?
    What is Quantum Physics? Quantum physics is a branch of science that deals with discrete, indivisible units of energy called quanta as described by the Quantum Theory. There are five main ideas represented in Quantum Theory: 1.Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units. 2.The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves. 3.The movement of these particles is inherently random. 4.It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is. 5.The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in. While at a glance this may seem like just another strange theory, it contains many clues as to the fundamental nature of the universe and is more important then even relativity in the grand scheme of things (if any one thing at that level could be said to be more important then anything else). Furthermore, it describes the nature of the universe as being much different then the world we see. As Niels Bohr said, "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it."

    Grains of Mystique Home Stuff About Journal ... Site Map Most of you will have heard the word quantum , and often wondered what it means, or what its significance is. Of course, there are lots of books available on this matter, complete with equations and rigorous derivations. If you wanted a simple 'tutorial', an introduction to quantum physics without all the hassles of mathematics (essential though it may be to physicists and researchers), then read on. In order to understand the concepts successfully, a knowledge of elementary physics is a prerequisite. Footnotes act as a revision, if your memory of secondary school sciences has faded!

    For over half a century, theorists have tried and failed to provide a complete solution to scattering in a quantum system of three charged particles, one of the most fundamental phenomena in atomic physics. Such interactions are everywhere; ionization by electron impact, for example, is responsible for the glow of fluorescent lights and for the ion beams that engrave silicon chips.

    a lawfirm? newton made the universe like a clock, all orderly and stuff - he explained why the apple fell from the tree. he did this by explaining the nature of matter and fields. drop an object, the matter of the object is affected by the fields surrounding it (gravitational or electromagnetic) he got the gravity thing, I think, that's why his name is on a famous gravity law. he didn't grok on the electromagnetic thing so well, but he did use scientific method - hypothesis, theory, stuff like that, with well documented experiments to back it up. some guy named maxwell used like the same method and learned about fields and stuff. then that famous dude einstein found out some more stuff that science didn't know - in one year, 1905, he busted out three phat theories, that are like still famous today. he was a major dude, and that was a major year. he discovered that things are like relative. this is an important part of quantum physics. I'm not sure where those two things intersect.

    (This just materialized on my desk one day. It's in my handwriting, so I must have written it, though I'll deny it if I'm indicted. -AA) The topic for today is quantum physics. Quantum physics was developed in the 1930's, as a result of a bet between Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr, to see who could come up with the most ridiculous theory and still have it published. Most people agree that Bohr won hands down, although Einstein did very well in the swimsuit competition. One of the most important researchers in quantum physics is Werner Heisenberg, a man with a wonderful sense of humor, who was always cracking one-liners, like "delta-p times delta-x is less than h!" Ha! ha! What a card! This is known as Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, which is closely related to Goedel's Incompleteness Theorem, which says that some things are true, but you can't prove them, like when my wife and I argue over whether it's her turn to take out the garbage or not. What Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle says is that if something is small enough, you can't say anything about it. Anyone with the I.Q. of baking powder immediately understood that this means that if you look at something so small that you can't even
