By Michael Drieschner

This ebook provides a suite of texts by means of the German physicist and thinker Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker (1912-2007), to be used in seminars at the background, epistemology and constitution of physics. so much texts seem in English for the 1st time. Weizsäcker grew to become well-known via his works in physics, almost always within the early improvement of nuclear physics. Later he might additionally turn into renowned as a thinker and analyst of latest tradition. Texts comprise the unique guides of the “Weizsäcker-Bethe formulation” of nuclear lots and the “Bethe-Weizsäcker cycle,” and is the reason the resource of power within the sunlight; either have been constructed via Bethe whilst and independently of Weizsäcker. additional texts care for Weizsäcker’s rationalization of the starting place of planets, his clarification of the “time arrow” in Statistical Mechanics and his analyses of Quantum Mechanics and the constitution of physics in general.

This article specializes in the algebraic formula of quantum box idea, from the introductory elements to the functions to concrete difficulties of actual curiosity. The publication is split in thematic chapters overlaying either introductory and extra complex issues. those comprise the algebraic, perturbative method of interacting quantum box theories, algebraic quantum box concept on curved spacetimes (from its structural features to the functions in cosmology and to the position of quantum spacetimes), algebraic conformal box thought, the Kitaev's quantum double version from the viewpoint of neighborhood quantum physics and confident features on the subject of integrable versions and deformation options.

This thesis provides a theoretical research into the construction and exploitation of quantum correlations and entanglement between ultracold atoms. in particular, it makes a speciality of those non-classical results in contexts: (i) exams of neighborhood realism with vast debris, e. g. , violations of a Bell inequality and the EPR paradox, and (ii) recognition of quantum know-how via exploitation of entanglement, for instance quantum-enhanced metrology.
