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.

The book gives a consequent and mathematical formulation to the interpretation of quantum mechanics that is often met among practical physicists. The book ought to be accessible to students that finished the standard course of quantum mechanics.

This paper introduces one interpretation of quantum mechanics, a modern 'many-worlds' theory, from the perspective of quantum computation. Reasons for seeking to interpret quantum mechanics are discussed, then the specific theory is introduced.

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the Bohmian formulation of quantum mechanics. After a historical review, a formal explanation of Bohmian mechanics for nonrelativistic, single-particle quantum systems is presented.

We revise fundamental concepts in the dynamics of open quantum systems in the light of modern developments in the field. Our aim is to present a unified approach to the quantum evolution of open systems that incorporates the traditional concepts.
