Subject Quantum field theory; Diffusion processes; Stochastic processes
Publisher Princeton Univ Pr

Format Hardcover (250 mm)
Language eng
In addition to developing the formal mathematical aspects of the theory, the book contains discussion of possible physical causes of quantum fluctuations in terms of an interaction with a background field. The author gives a critical analysis of stochastic mechanics as a candidate for a realistic theory of physical processes, discussing measurement, local causality in the sense of Bell, and the failure of the theory in its present form to satisfy locality.
