The Undivided Universe: An Ontological Interpretation of Quantum Theory
Starting from the realization that the WKB approximation of quantum mechanics leads univrse deterministic equations and convinced that a mere approximation could not turn a probabilistic theory into a deterministic theory, he doubted the inevitability of the conventional approach to quantum mechanics. Jul 23, DJ marked it as to-read Shelves: Wilkes-Barre, PennsylvaniaUS.
With the aid of new concepts such as active information together with non-locality, they provide a comprehensive account of all the basic features of quantum mechanics, including the relativistic domain and quantum field theory.
