Lectures on the Mathematics of Quantum Mechanics II: Selected Topics (eBook, PDF)
Each contribution is an article in itself, and great effort has been made by the authors to be lucid and not too technical. A few brief highlights of the round-table discussions are given between the chapters. Topics include: Quantum non-locality, the measurement problem, quantum insights into relativity, cosmology and thermodynamics, and possible bearings of quantum mechanics to biology and consciousness. Authors include Yakir Aharanov and Anton Zeilinger, plus Nobel laureates Anthony J. Leggett (2003) and Gerardus 't Hooft (1999). Foreword written by Sir Roger Penrose, best-selling author (The Emperor's New Mind) and world-renowned mathematical physicist.

From the reviews: "The book comprises eighteen purpose-written chapters and three others featuring verbatim reports of discussions between workshop participants. ... It all makes for an interesting read - much of it quite demanding, and repaying a reader's commitment to further reflection. ... I commend this volume as a thought-provoking and largely entertaining read." (D. L. Andrews, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 47 (1), 2006) "Quantum Mechanics appears to be at a turning point. ... to read this cooperative work is a 'must' for all the people interested by the strange nature of quantum matters. ... most of the great names of the field do contribute to this interesting volume. There is also an open door to the field of biophysics and to the understanding of the connection of our minds to our bodies. Eventually, the three roundtable discussions ... ideally complement the contributed papers." (Jean-Marie André, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 30 (1), 2008) "It provides a valuable perspective on how the current leaders in the field think and gives a sense of what heuristics motivate them ... . useful to someone beginning graduate studies in the foundations of quantum mechanics: as something to dip into to help orient them; to suggest promising avenues for cutting-edge research; and to give a vivid sense of the shape of the field. ... It's a volume that all workers on the foundations of physics will be pleased to have on their shelves." (Christopher Timpson, Metascience, Vol. 16, 2007)
