Quantum Fundamentals

Quantum mechanics is a successful framework for understanding and predicting behavior of small systems, such as atoms. However, some aspects of quantum mechanics seem paradoxical give rise to deep questions about the nature of physical reality. Study of these questions gives rise to important applications in measurement theory as even quantum computation.
