Do We Really Understand Quantum Mechanics? 2nd Edition

Description Quantum mechanics impacts on many areas of physics from pure theory to applications. However it is difficult to interpret, and philosophical contradictions and counter-intuitive results are apparent at a fundamental level. This book presents current understanding of the theory, providing a historical introduction and discussing many of its interpretations. Fully revised from the first edition, this book contains state-of-the-art research including loophole-free experimental Bell test, and theorems on the reality of the wave function including the PBR theorem, and a new section on quantum simulation. More interpretations are now included, and these are described and compared, including discussion of their successes and difficulties. Other...

Mathematical Cryptology

Description Encryption of a message means the information in it is hidden so that anyone who’s reading (or listening to) the message, can’t understand any of it unless he/she can break the encryption. An original plain message is called plaintext and an encrypted one cryptotext. When encrypting you need to have a so-called key, a usually quite complicated parameter that you can use to change the encryption. If the encrypting procedure remains unchanged for a long time, the probability of breaking the encryption will in practise increase substantially. Naturally different users need to have their own keys, too. Download Links Server 1  | Server 2...
