Editorial Reviews


"This is really an unique book which should be read by everyone who is interested in the foundations of modern physics from a philosophical point of view or anyone who is working in the modern fields of quantum optics and quantum information." -- Anton Zeilinger, University of Vienna

"Stenholm, a theoretical physicist specializing in quantum optics, has a wide understanding of many of the philosophical issues that lie at the heart of the debate that surrounds the foundations of quantum theory." -- Basil Hiley, Birkbeck College, University of London

About the Author

Stig Stenholm has done distinguished work in quantum optics for 40 years, holding professorships and research positions at the Universities of Stuttgart and Helsinki, at IBM Research Laboratory, San Jose, California and at the Optical Sciences Center, Tucson, Arizona, before his retirement from KTH Stockholm in 2004. He has received the Alexander von Humboldt Award, Germany, and the The Homen Prize in Physics from the Societas Scientiarum Fennica.
