Quantum Mechanical Initial Conditions & Gravity (Copenhagen's Illusions) Paperback / softback
Since the late 1920s, the theory formulated by Niels Bohr and his colleagues at Copenhagen has been the dominant interpretation of quantum mechanics.
Yet an alternative interpretation, rooted in the work of Luis de Broglie and reformulated and extended by David Bohm and his colleagues in the 1950s, explains the experimental data equally well.
Through a detailed historical and sociological study of debates within and between opposing camps, and the reception given by each theory, Cushing showed that despite the pre-eminence of the Copenhagen view, the Bohms interpretation cannot be ignored.
In this book, the author discusses why Bohm's point of view is more productive.
The properties of solitary objects, which he discusses, contradict the Copenhagen's Illusions, but the results are proved experimentally..
