Title  Foundations of Quantum Mechanics 
Author(s)  Tumulka, Roderich 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 468 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces and critically appraises the main proposals for how to understand quantum mechanics, namely the Copenhagen interpretation, spontaneous collapse, Bohmian mechanics, manyworlds, and others. The author makes clear what are the crucial problems, such as the measurement problem, related to the foundations of quantum mechanics and explains the key arguments like the EinsteinPodolskyRosen argument and Bell???s proof of nonlocality. He discusses and clarifies numerous topics that have puzzled the founding fathers of quantum mechanics and presentday students alike, such as the possibility of hidden variables, the collapse of the wave function, timeofarrival measurements, explanations of the symmetrization postulate for identical particles, or the nature of spin. Several chapters are devoted to extending the different approaches to relativistic spacetime and quantum field theory. The book is selfcontained and is intended for graduate students and researchers who want to step into the fundamental aspects of quantum physics. Given its clarity, it is accessible also to advanced undergraduates and contains many exercises and examples to master the subject

Title  Effects of Nonlocality in Gravity and Quantum Theory 
Author(s)  Boos, Jens 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIX, 210 p. 37 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis is devoted to the systematic study of nonlocal theories that respect Lorentz invariance and are devoid of new, unphysical degrees of freedom. Such theories are attractive for phenomenological applications since they are mostly unconstrained by current experiments. Nonlocality has played an increasingly important role in the physics of the last decades, appearing in effective actions in quantum field theory, and arising naturally in string theory and noncommutative geometry. It may even be a necessary ingredient for quantum theories of gravity. It is a feature of quantum entanglement, and may even solve the longstanding black hole information loss problem. ???Nonlocality??? is a broad concept with many promising and fruitful applications in theoretical and mathematical physics. After a historical and pedagogical introduction into the concept of nonlocality the author develops the notion of nonlocal Green functions to study various nonlocal weakfield problems in quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, gravity, and quantum field theory in curved spacetime. This thesis fills a gap in the literature by providing a selfcontained exploration of weakfield effects in nonlocal theories, thereby establishing a ???nonlocal intuition??? which may serve as a stepping stone for studies of the full, nonlinear problem of nonlocality
