Accessible introduction to essential quantum phenomena and their implications
Shows that non-locality and other quantum puzzles are more than mere intellectual curiosities
Addresses the interests of both physicists and philosophers
Describes features of the microphysical world that future technologies will exploit
This book explores the nature of quantum entanglement and quantum information and their role in the quantum world. Their relations to a number of key experiments and thought experiments in the history of quantum physics are considered, as is a range of interpretations of quantum mechanics that have been put forward as a means of understanding the fundamental nature of microphysics - the traditionally accepted domain of quantum mechanics - and in some cases, the universe as a whole. In this way, the book reveals the deep significance of entanglement and quantum information for our understanding of the physical world.
