Beyond Peaceful Coexistence : The Emergence of Space, Time and Quantum (Hardcover)
about this item
Quantum Physics and Spacetime Dynamics beyond Peaceful Coexistence brings together leading academics in mathematics and physics to address the key questions behind one of the hottest problems in current theoretical physics: going beyond the 'peaceful coexistence' between space-time descriptions (local and continuous ones) and quantum events (discrete and non-commutative ones).The approaches presented in this book include emergent, discrete, geometrodynamic and topological perspectives, demonstrating a multitude of theories augmented by the most innovative current ideas in mathematics. Unlike any existing book, this work explains how renowned physicists propose to derive technical consequences regarding cosmology and particle physics, starting from general principles concerning the whole of physics and its role within science.As well as stimulating further research among established theoretical physicists, the book can also be used in courses on the philosophy and mathematics of theoretical physics.
