From the contents: I. General Introduction: Elements of Environmental Decoherence. The Meaning of Decoherence -- II. Theoretical Aspects -- III. Experiments -- IV. Alternative Approaches -- V. Conceptual and Epistemological Issues.
In this book the process of decoherence is reviewed from both the theoretical and the experimental physicist's point of view. Implications of this important concept for fundamental problems of quantum theory and for chemistry and biology are also given. This broad review of decoherence addresses researchers and graduate students. It could also be used in seminar work.
