The 8th Rochester convention on Coherence and Quantum Optics used to be hung on the campus of the college of Rochester throughout the interval June 13-16,2001. This quantity comprises the lawsuits of the assembly. The assembly was once preceded by way of an affiliated convention, the overseas convention on Quantum details, with a few overlapping periods on June thirteen. The complaints of the affiliated convention could be released individually through the Optical Society of the USA. a number of papers that have been provided in universal plenary classes of the 2 meetings could be released in either lawsuits volumes. greater than 268 scientists from 28 international locations participated within the week lengthy discussions and displays. This convention differed from the former seven within the CQO sequence in different methods, crucial of which used to be the absence of Leonard Mandel. Professor Mandel died a couple of months sooner than the convention. a different memorial symposium in his honor was once held on the finish of the convention. The shows from that symposium are integrated during this complaints quantity. An innovation, that we think made a massive contribution to the convention, was once the inclusion of a chain of invited lectures chaired via CQO founder Emil Wolf, reviewing the background of the fields of coherence and quantum optics prior to approximately 1970. those got through 3 renowned contributors within the improvement of the sector, C. Cohen-Tannoudji, 1. F. Clauser, and R. I. Glauber.

Example text

World, Aug. 33-40 (1990). 27 The next important step in the saga occurred in 1950, when David Bohm (a former student of Oppenheimer) published a new textbook, Quantum Theory/6. The book's treatment of the underlying conceptual foundations of quantum mechanics is quite similar to other textbooks of the era. In it, Bohm follows von Neumann and expresses strong doubts about the existence of hidden parameters within quantum mechanics. However, he stops short of asserting that their existence is impossible.

Bohr, H. A. Kramers, and 1. C. Slater, Phil. Mag. [6] 47, 785-802 (1924). 10 II 26 not specify any allowed error bounds for these unspecified experiments, which, if violated, might overturn or help confirm the far reaching conclusions that he draws. Von Neumann is not alone in this regard. Bohr, EPR, Furry and Schrodinger also cite no actual experiments. Perhaps these authors all tacitly accepted and promoted the aforementioned religious belief because they were all theorists and felt that correspondingly they should act as clergymen.
