So this is a course on the foundations of quantum mechanics from the Perimeter Institute. The course consists of an introduction to the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics and the historical problems associated with that interpretation. In particular, the measurement problem, the EPR paradox and a discussion of contemporary views on these topics will be covered. The majority of the course lectures will consist of guest lectures from international experts covering the various approaches to the interpretation of quantum theory (in particular, many-worlds, de Broglie-Bohm, consistent/decoherent histories, and statistical/epistemic interpretations).
