Identity and Individuality in Quantum Theory
What are the metaphysical implications of quantum physics? One way of approaching this question is to consider the impact of the theory on our understanding of objects as individuals with well defined identity conditions. One view is that quantum theory implies that the fundamental particles of physics cannot be regarded as individual objects in this sense. Such a view has motivated the development of non-standard formal systems which are appropriate for representing such non-individual objects. However, it has also been argued that quantum physics is in fact compatible with a metaphysics of individual objects. Nevertheless, such objects are indistinguishable in a sense which leads to the violation of Leibniz's famous Principle of the Identity of Indiscernibles. Finally, this underdetermination of the metaphysics of individuality by the physics has important implications for the realism-antirealism debate.

Q2. What is a wave?
A wave is a periodic variation of some quantity as a function of location or time. For example, the wave motion of a vibrating guitar string is defined by the displacement of the string from its center as a function of distance along the string. A sound wave consists of variations in the pressure with location. A wave is characterized by its wavelength l (lambda) and frequency n (nu), which are connected by the relation

Measurement in Quantum Theory
The dynamics and the postulate of collapse are flatly in contradiction with one another ... the postulate of collapse seems to be right about what happens when we make measurements, and the dynamics seems to be bizarrely wrong about what happens when we make measurements, and yet the dynamics seems to be right about what happens whenever we aren't making measurements. (Albert 1992, 79) This has come to be known as "the measurement problem" and in what follows, we study the details and examine some of the implications of this problem. The measurement problem is not just an interpretational problem internal to QM. It raises broader issues as well, such more general philosophical debates between, on the one hand, Cartesian and Lockean accounts of observation as the creation of "inner reflections" and, on the other, neo-Kantean conceptions of observation as a quasi-externalized physiological process. In this article I trace the history of these debates, and indicate some of the interpretative strategies that they stimulated.
The Birth of the Measurement Problem
The measurement problem in QM (Quantum Mechanics) grew out of early debates over Niels Bohr's "Copenhagen interpretation". Bohr maintained that the physical properties of quantum systems depend in a fundamental way upon experimental conditions, including conditions of measurement. This doctrine appeared explicitly in Bohr's 1935 reply to Einstein, Podolski, and Rosen: "The procedure of measurement has an essential influence on the conditions on which the very definition of the physical quantities in question rests" (Bohr 1935, 1025; see too Bohr 1929). To be specific, Bohr endorsed the following principle:

To 100 anniversary of Q uantum T heory
Friden Korolkevich The quantum theory is based on constant and quantum But the essence of the constant is not clear. Planck called it the mysterious messenger from the real world[1] and de Broglie called it the mysterious costant[2]. What object of nature does it characterize? It is not clear. It is something like the Cheshire Cat’s smile in Lewis Carrol’s tale about Alice: there is a quantity of something, but this something is not yet or already seen. In 1951 Albert Einstein wrote to his friend Michael Besso that a conscious search for half a century had not brought him closer to answering the question: what are quanta of light? And it is still the same[3]. Consequently, the quantum theory is based on two famous but little understood categories, which are accepted without dispute. In 1911 Puancare described the Planck constant as small and unchangeable atoms of energy. Boltsman, Erenfest, Ioffe himself had the same thought. In 1924 Planck proposed we accept that the energy of the single oscillation of the light source be equal to one constant of the value Consequently, in its most general view and following principles of mechanics, the physical essence of light can be brought down to the notion of radiation energy.

Rudiments of quantum theory. quantum theory was not created out of the blue . Foranother decade, extensions to this quantum theory proved unsatisfying.
Rudiments of Quantum Theory
  • Quantum theory was not created "out of the blue". It's mathematical framework and ideas grow out of a long history of classical mechanics.
  • A number of certain experiments around the turn of the century created the need to replace the classical theory of matter with a new quantum theory.
  • The first attempt's (Bohr) had remarkable yet limited success. This became known as the Old Quantum Theory.

An important aspect of understanding of one's position is to appreciate where one came from. This is also true of modern science. Though admittedly more complex, it is possible to follow a thread through the last four centuries up to the birth of modern quantum mechanics. Rene Descartes is often credited as the Father of Modern Mathematics. While a mercenary soldier, he experienced a dream one night that triggered in his mind the idea of modern algebra. (Some nightmare!) It is helpful to follow a short tour from Descartes through to Newton, Bernoulli, Euler, Hamilton, Maxwell, Einstein, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, and Dirac. It is revealing to see how the mathematical ideas of one generation opened new avenues for the next.

12. Solitons
An overview of the classical and quantum theory related to solitons
SOLITONS Table of Contents: 1. Introduction 1.1. Historical Account Although for quite some time only classical solutions (i.e. not quantised) in low dimensional spaces have been considered their importance was recognised in quite different areas of physics. Information technology, struggling with signal broadening al ong transmission lines, would certainly gain from the use of non-dispersive pulses. For particle physicists a localised and stable wave might be a good model for elementary particles opening up in a non-linear field theory the possibility of what would h ave to be a wave packet in a linear one (newer fundamental gauge theories are non-Abelian and therefore non-linear). Notably among others is the Skyrme model that aims to describe nucleons and nucleon-nucleon interactions. Topological solitons give rise to pre- quantum mechanical quantisation of charges. For any non-linear theory the soliton is at least as fundamental a solution as the sine wave. Recently, there have been profound advances in finding solitons in higher dimensional theories and in quantising them. Doing quantum mechanics one finds rel ations between solitons that go very deep and are entirely unexpected from a classical viewpoint. 1.2. Shallow Water Solitary Waves

[Dr. Chris Oakley's home page] [More comments about academic research]
The search for a quantum field theory
or: Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman
I left the academic profession at the age of 27, having made serious attempts to solve a major scientific problem that has been outstanding since 1929. I left not because the research I was doing was failing, but because it was virtually impossible to continue in the face of total opposition from the academic establishment. Looking back on it fifteen years on, my experience reminds me of the film Logan's Run , where the system trains young people only to the point at which they become a threat. After that it has to eliminate them. Here is the full story
When I was doing my A-levels in 1976, elementary particle physics was considered the ultimate scientific study, and not just among scientists: there were regular popular science TV programs on the subject and many of the general public were au fait with such concepts as Bubble Chambers, Quarks, Gluons, Strangeness and Charm. Such was the interest that I found myself spending a lot of time explaining these things to non-specialists, including family and friends, and when I got the chance to do graduate study in the field, I was was thrilled. I then discovered something that seems so obvious that I cannot believe that I am the first to see it: namely that if the field is written as a power series in the coupling constant, then the field equations enable a simple reduction of an interacting field in terms of the free field and any amplitude can be calculated just by inspection. Specialists please go

A history of Quantum Mechanics

It is hard to realise that the electron was discovered less than 100 years ago in 1897. That it was not expected is illustrated by a remark made by J J Thomson, the discoverer of the electron. He said I was told long afterwards by a distinguished physicist who had been present at my lecture that he thought I had been pulling their leg. The neutron was not discovered until 1932 so it is against this background that we trace the beginnings of quantum theory back to 1859. In 1859 Gustav Kirchhoff proved a theorem about blackbody radiation. A blackbody is an object that absorbs all the energy that falls upon it and, because it reflects no light, it would appear black to an observer. A blackbody is also a perfect emitter and Kirchhoff proved that the energy emitted E depends only on the temperature T and the frequency v of the emitted energy, i.e. E J T v He challenged physicists to find the function J In 1879 Josef Stefan proposed, on experimental grounds, that the total energy emitted by a hot body was proportional to the fourth power of the temperature. In the generality stated by Stefan this is false. The same conclusion was reached in 1884 by Ludwig

Nature's Quantum Theory of Relativity The speed of light is constant anywhere, but light's velocity never is... ...due to affecting objects.
There exists a simple pattern that defines the nature of Nature Introduction: This paper exposes a unifying pattern in nature, as it is supported by an old and fundamental law of physics. Remember the following, as quoted from the "Quantum Theory Time-Line", because it clearly expresses the pattern to which I will often refer that should also clear up physics for once, and for all that are able to understand: From the Time-Line: "1961, As the number of known particles keep increasing, a mathematical classification scheme to organize the particles (the group SU(3)) helps physicists recognize patterns of particle types." The claim that is being supported in this discertaion is that the pattern, (which will be clearly presented here), qualifies to unify all forces, and that the quantifying math and physics must, as is "pre-ordained", be naturally required, contained, and expressed within the pattern... The Matrix of Forces United: Light's speed is absolutely constant, but light's speed between any two points in "space" can not possibly ever match that speed, even when light is moving through deep-space and under the micro-gravitational influence of all massive objects, since the micro-distorting affects are never constant with respect to the continuous change in position between interacting objects, (distance being absolutely relevant to the level of gravitatioal influence that exists between bodies in euclidean "outter space").
