These are the court cases of the Workshop on Quantum common sense held in Erice (Sicily), December 2 - nine, 1979, on the Ettore Hajorana Centre for medical tradition. A convention of this kind was once initially proposed through Giuliano Toraldo di Francia, who recommended the assumption to Antonino Zichichi, and therefore laid the root for the Workshop. To either one of them we exhibit our appreciation and thank you, additionally on behalf of the opposite contributors, for having made this convention attainable. there have been nearly fifty contributors; their names and associations are indexed within the textual content. Quantum common sense, which has now a historical past of a few 40 or extra years, has noticeable awesome development in the course of the sixties and seventies. The papers within the current quantity presuppose, mainly, a few acquaintance with the weather of the topic. those should be present in the well known books by means of J.H. Jauch (Foundations of Quantum Hechanics; examining, 1968), V.S. Varadarajan (Geometry of Quantum conception: Princeton, 1968), and C. Piron (Foundations of Quantum thought; big apple, 1976). The preliminary application for the convention indexed approximately twenty-five invited papers. yet within the context of a really lively and certified attendance, different contributions have been provided. This quantity comprises them all. this system indexed six major themes: I. type or diversified parts of quantum common sense, and open difficulties. II. comparability and unification of alternative techniques to quantum theories; difficulties of interpretation. III. Formal quantum common sense; axiomatics. IV. Hodal interpretations of quantum good judgment. v vi FOREWORD V. Quantum set theory.
