About the Author

After graduating in mathematics, philosophy, and physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Gregg Jaeger undertook his doctoral work in physics at Boston University under Abner Shimony, with whom he discovered new complementarity relations in quantum interferometry. He currently holds a professorship at Boston University, where he has offered courses in the mathematics, natural science, and philosophy departments. His recent research has focused on decoherence, entanglement theory, quantum computing, and quantum cryptography.


From the reviews:"As the title suggests, this book focuses on interpreting quantum mechanics in light of entanglement and information theory. ... provides an introduction to entanglement and the mathematics of quantum mechanics. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Academic libraries serving upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (E. Kincanon, Choice, Vol. 47 (7), March, 2010)"The book under review ... summarize and compare the most important ideas in the interpretation of quantum mechanics, and to explore both how these ideas may be altered by recent developments in quantum information, and how interpretational issues may inform the operational goals of quantum information. ... contains a great deal of interesting material about both the history and the philosophy of the interpretation of quantum mechanics, which is well worth reading. ... of interest to students of the foundations of quantum mechanics ... ."
