Realistic Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
According to Einstein “a physical theory should offer a picture of reality”. This made him frustrated and dissatisfied with the standard interpretation (or lack thereof) of quantum theory, since attempts to get a “picture” from it soon led to contradictions like the wave-particle duality. This book provides such a picture of the quantum world, that is, a “realistic interpretation”. Of course, this needs to be done in a way that is compatible with today’s experimental evidence, including the experiments that seem to contradict (local) realism.
The book also offers a personal view on the meaning of general relativity and its relation with quantum mechanics, proposing a new perspective for dark energy, dark matter and stellar collapse. It is the result and a summary of the author’s extensive research on the foundations of quantum mechanics, spanning more than 50 years.
Emilio Santos Corchero retired as a Professor in Theoretical Physics at the University of Cantabria, Spain, in 2006, having previously held positions in the Universities of Costa Rica and Valladolid, Spain. He is the author of the books Problemas conceptuales de la Física Cuántica (1983) and El mundo natural según la teoría de la Relatividad de Einstein (2012), as well as around 300 hundred research articles and book chapters. His work focuses on the foundations of quantum physics, as well as astrophysics and relativistic stars.
