Quantum Mechanics owes it's success to mathematical formalism. Through a discussion of various achievements in Mathematical and logical formalism, this handbook will ultimately address larger issues surrounding Quantum Mechanics.
Quantum mechanics is said to be the most successful physical theory ever. It is, in fact, unique in its success when applied to concrete physical problems. On the other hand, however, it raises profound conceptual problems which are equally unprecedented. Quantum logic, the topic of this volume, can be described as an attempt to cast light on the puzzle of quantum mechanics from the point of view of logic.
Since its inception in the famous 1936 paper by Birkhoff and von Neumann entitled "The logic of quantum mechanics", quantum logic has undergone an enormous development. Various schools of thought and approaches have emerged and there are a variety of technical results. The chapters of this volume constitute a comprehensive presentation of the main schools, approaches and results in the field of quantum logic.

Foundation ActionScript Animation: Making Things Move!
Sure you can animate using motion tweens, in fact we'll help you do that with our Flash Cartoon Animation book, but isn't there something extra special in making things move with just a few lines of code?
In this book Keith Peters guides us through some basic animation theory and then demystifies the math and physics behind creating...
Scalability Patterns: Best Practices for Designing High Volume Websites
In this book, the CEO of Cazton, Inc. and internationally-acclaimed speaker, Chander Dhall, demonstrates current website design scalability patterns and takes a pragmatic approach to explaining their pros and cons to show you how to select the appropriate pattern for your site. He then tests the patterns by deliberately...
Numerical Techniques in Electromagnetics with MATLAB
Despite the dramatic growth in the availability of powerful computer resources, the EM community lacks a comprehensive text on the computational techniques used to solve EM problems. The first edition of Numerical Techniques in Electromagnetics filled that gap and became the reference of choice for thousands of engineers,...
