Quantum Foundations

Abstract

Quantum Mechanics has very many experimental results but leads to very little if any understanding of nature. It often raises more . In this project we hope to explore the different interpretations and formulations of Quantum Mechanics along with the questions it raises and answers. This is a reading project that centers around lectures, discussion and problem solving sessions.
