Beschreibung

The essays in this volume were written by leading researchers on classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, quantum theory and relativity. The papers cover a number of central topics in the foundations of physics, including the role of symmetry principles in classical and quantum physics (papers by Butterfield and by Healey), Einstein's hole argument in general relativity (Korte), quantum mechanics and special relativity (Hemmo and Berkovitz, Brown and Timpson), quantum correlations (Glymour, Redei), quantum logic (Demopoulos, Isham, Stairs), and quantum probability and information (Gudder, Pitowsky). The authors - philosophers, physicists, and mathematicians - represent a broad spectrum of approaches to foundational issues at the frontiers of contemporary research. This befits a volume in honor of Jeffrey Bub, one of the leading philosophers of physics of the last thirty years, whose influence on the field is evident all the essays collected for this volume. TOC:Preface.- A new modal interpretation of quantum mechanics in terms of relational properties.- Why special relativity should not be a template for a reformulation of quantum mechanics.- On symmetries and conserved quantities in classical mechanics.- On the notion of a physical theory of an incompletely knowable domain.- Markov properties and quantum experiments.- Quantum entropy.- Symmetry and the scope of scientific realism.- Is it true or is it false; or somewhere in between? The logic of quantum mechanics.- Einstein's hole argument and Weyl's field-body relationalism.- Quantum mechanics as a theory of probability.- John von Neumann on quantum correlations.- Kriske, Tupman and quantum logic: The quantum logician's conundrum.- Bibliography of the publications of Jeffrey Bub to 2006.- Index.
