This book presents the current views of leading physicists on the bizarre property of quantum theory: nonlocality. Einstein viewed this theory as 'spooky action at a distance' which, together with randomness, resulted in him being unable to accept quantum theory. The contributions in the book describe, in detail, the bizarre aspects of nonlocality, such as Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering and quantum teleportation -- a phenomenon which cannot be explained in the framework of classical physics, due its foundations in quantum entanglement.

Shortcuts to adiabaticity are fast routes to the final results of slow adiabatic changes of the controlling parameters of a system. The shortcuts are designed by a set of analytical and numerical methods suitable for different systems and conditions.

A non-traditional perspective on space, time, particles, fields, and action-at-a-distance. This book is an attempt to build a consistent relativistic quantum theory of interacting particles. The developed theory is applied to realistic physical objects.

A discussion of several aspects of our present understanding of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is put on the special correlations that this theory makes possible: they are forbidden by very general arguments based on realism and local causality.
