It is a short book, full of graphics and cartoons, telling the history of development of quantum theory. It gives us a ride through history by introducing the major and most remarkable physicists of the world from the past few centuries and their most interesting discoveries, more specifically those related to quantum theory/5. Quantum Theory, together with the principles of special and general relativity, constitute a scientific revolution that has profoundly influenced the way in which we think about the universe and the fundamental forces that govern it.5/5(5).

The mathematical formulations of quantum mechanics are those mathematical formalisms that permit a rigorous description of quantum mathematical formalism uses mainly a part of functional analysis, especially Hilbert space which is a kind of linear are distinguished from mathematical formalisms for physics theories developed prior to the early s by the use of. The history of quantum theory is a maze of conceptual problems, through which Olivier Darrigol provides a lucid and learned guide, tracking the role of formal analogies between classical and quantum theory. From Planck's first introduction of the quantum of action to Dirac's formulation of quantum mechanics, Darrigol illuminates not only the history of quantum theory but also the role of.

G S Im, Experimental constraints on formal quantum mechanics: the emergence of Born's quantum theory of collision processes in Göttingen, , Archive for History of Exact Sciences 50 (1) (), M Jammer, The philosophy of quantum mechanics: the interpretations of quantum mechanics in historical perspective (New York, ). In particle physics, quantum electrodynamics (QED) is the relativistic quantum field theory of essence, it describes how light and matter interact and is the first theory where full agreement between quantum mechanics and special relativity is achieved. QED mathematically describes all phenomena involving electrically charged particles interacting by means of exchange of.

So, it has applications in all those fields where quantum mechanics is being used. It has applications in electrical appliances, medical field, quantum computing, lasers, quantum cryptography etc.I think that the best histories are not written as histories at all, but as monographs. My personal favorite for earliest quantum theory is.

Ter Haar "The Old Quantum Theory" This monograph explains the ideas of pre-Heisenberg quantum mechanics, as developed by Wien, Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Sommerfeld, Pauli and others.In particle physics, the history of quantum field theory starts with its creation by Paul Dirac, when he attempted to quantize the electromagnetic field in the late s.

Major advances in the theory were made in the s and s, and led to the introduction of renormalized quantum electrodynamics (QED). QED was so successful and accurately predictive that efforts were made to apply the.
