Three Lectures on the Foundations of Quantum Theory and Quantum Electrodynamics

  • A. O. Barut
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 135)


The common feature of these three lectures is to explore the borderline region between classical physics and quantum physics. I do not think that one kind of physical laws stop being applicable sharply and another regime of laws begin. Rather the intrinsic properties of electrons and photons are more complicated than the classical physics assumes them to be and that we have to explore how we approximate these internal structures in classical theory and in quantum theory.
