Publisher: Macquarie University

Description:
With the development of the 'quantum information' interpretation of quantum mechanics, more and more the tendency is to move away from wave mechanics to the more abstract linear algebra version, chiefly expressed in the notation due to Dirac. It is this more general view of quantum mechanics that is presented in these notes.

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.

The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. We emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.

The author shows how a transformed modern physics curriculum may positively impact student perspectives on indeterminacy and wave-particle duality, by making questions of classical and quantum reality a central theme of his course.
