A “Schrodinger Cat” Superposition

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Sandra L. Manulat “Schrodinger’s cat paradox is a classical illustration of the conflict between the existence of quantum superpositions and our real-world experience of observation and measurement”[1]. The Principle of Superposition of States in quantum mechanics has become strikingly successful at describing physical phenomena at the atomic scale.  Quantum superposition requires us to assume that […]

A Summary of Decoherence and the Transition from Quantum to Classical by Wojciech H. Zurek

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Normie Jean B. Sajor Quantum mechanics is one of the most functional theories in the world of physics.  It describes the workings of particles, atoms, and molecules with extraordinary accuracy and also explains the action of lasers and transistors. Yet, the debate about the relation of quantum mechanics to the familiar physical world continues. For […]
