About this book

Trajectory-based formalisms are an intuitively appealing way of describing quantum processes because they allow the use of "classical" concepts. Beginning at an introductory level suitable for students, this two-volume monograph presents (1) the fundamentals and (2) the applications of the trajectory description of basic quantum processes. This first volume is focussed on the classical and quantum background necessary to understand the fundamentals of Bohmian mechanics, which can be considered the main topic of this work. Extensions of the formalism to the fields of open quantum systems and to optics are also proposed and discussed.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The aim of the book of Sanz and Miret-Artés, the first in a two-volume set, is to promote the practical applications of quantum trajectories, at a level suitable for graduate students. … This book is recommended as an introduction to several important themes of contemporary quantum physics.” (Peter Holland, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 54 (1), 2013)
