In , the French physicist Louis de Broglie put forward his theory of matter waves by stating that particles can exhibit wave characteristics and vice versa. This theory was for a single particle and derived from special relativity ng on de Broglie's approach, modern quantum mechanics was born in , when the German physicists Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, and . In the book of Quantum Theory, Bohm proposed that implicate order could apply to both the material world and consciousness, which was capable of explaining the relationship between them. In his opinion, mind and matter are projections into the .

After reading this book, if you're interested in a more mathematical treatment, I would recommend the R.I.G. Hughes book, The Structure and Interpretation of Quantum Theory. It uses a little calculus, but mostly sticks to presenting the mathematics of quantum linear algebra, vector spaces, tensors, and matrix theory as developed by David. Quantum Theory, together with the principles of special and general relativity, constitutes a scientific revolution that has profoundly influenced the way in which .

Ideas That Led to Quantum Theory. One important idea that is the basis of quantum theory is wave-particle duality, first shown through the photoelectric effect. In order to prove that the electron was a wave G.P. Thomson designed an experiment—the double-slit experiment.

The Historical Development Of Quantum Theory. The development is fresh and logical throughout, with each step carefully motivated by what has gone before, and emphasizing the reasons why such a theory should describe nature.

Quantum Theory, together with the principles of special and general relativity, constitute a scientific revolution that has profoundly influenced the way in which we think about the universe and the fundamental forces that govern it.

The Historical Development of Quantum Theory is a definitive historical study of that scientific work and the human struggles that accompanied it from the beginning. One of the most philosophically disturbing ideas to come from quantum physics is the fact that the theory is non-local.

That is, the outcomes measurements made in distant locations can be. Book develops the equations of quantum mechanics from two principles: (1) A general statement of the Uncertainty Principle that recognizes the existence in nature of pairs of incompatible observables, the simultaneous values of which have irreducible intrinsic uncertainties, the product of which is constrained by a fundamental constant of nature, Planck’s constant.

(2) The. In this book the author looks at the continuing debate about the meaning of quantum theory. The historical development of the theory is traced from the turn of the century through to the 's, and the famous debate between Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein.

The book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors.
