New light shed on old dispute between Einstein and Bohr

18 January 2010

New light shed on old dispute between Einstein and BohrIn classical physics there are no uncertainties – the properties of matter on an atomic level are deterministic, that is to say predetermined. The theories of quantum mechanics, however, only say something about how...
