Chronology and Outlook

The following chronology places emphasis on the basics and on interpretations of quantum physics; it should not be considered to be a history of quantum physics as a whole. In particular, the special developments within quantum field theory, and the advances in particle physics which grew out of them, are not included. However, along with the interpretations which were given a detailed treatment in earlier chapters (Copenhagen, GRW, Everett, Bohm), a number of other approaches are briefly mentioned here. They could not be treated in detail in the rest of the book.
