Number of pages: 286

Description:
This book uses the formal semantics of counterfactual conditionals to analyze the problem of non-locality in quantum mechanics. Counterfactual conditionals (subjunctive conditionals) enter the analysis of quantum entangled systems in that they enable us to precisely formulate the locality condition that purports to exclude the existence of causal interactions between spatially separated parts of a system.

Book cover: The Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum MechanicsThe Cellular Automaton Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
by - Springer
This book presents the deterministic view of quantum mechanics developed by Gerard 't Hooft. 't Hooft has revived the old hidden variable ideas, but now in a much more systematic way. Quantum mechanics is viewed as a tool rather than a theory.
