6.1 Preamble When I studied quantum mechanics in university, I tried to understand what exactly stood behind those equations, but I failed.
Thus, the most unreasonable and absurd predictions of quantum mechanics, repeatedly mentioned by Einstein, were proved by numerous experiments.
When Einstein (together with Rosen and Podolsky) has suggested his famous mental experiment with two scattering protons, he managed to prove clearly the following. Either quantum mechanics is incomplete or
Now we will consider the experiment, which in full illustrates the unusual behavior of quantum objects. The description of similar (and more exotic) experiments, both real and imaginable, is presented […]
5.1. Electron passing through two slots When it was found out experimentally that an electron has the wave properties, the following question has arisen naturally. Does every single electron have […]
The Copenhagen interpretation is the only interpretation of quantum mechanics that explains consistently all available experimental observations, including corpuscular-wave dualism and nonlocality. This interpretation has one shortcoming – it is […]
In 1950s the papers of David Bohm appeared in press; he tried to formulate a new interpretation for quantum mechanics, something like “wave-pilot” theory. His publications gave impetus to many […]
From the point of view of quantum mechanics, Laplace was unable to calculate the entire Universe from known initial conditions — by a very simple reason. There are no such […]
During the eighteen century, the classical mechanics achieved its prime. With simple Newton’s laws, scientists were able to calculate the trajectory of a celestial body and get a precise time […]
The fifth Solvay Congress, held in October 1927, was marked with hot discussions about physical meaning of the quantum mechanics, especially in the part of corpuscular-wave dualism. All physicists understood […]
