Probing the Meaning of Quantum Mechanics: Physical, Philosophical and Logical Perspectives
Lugar: Singapur; Año: 2014; p. 251 - 263
Since its origins, Quantum mechanics has presented problems with the concept of individuality. It is argued that quantum particles do not have individuality, and so, one can speak about "entities without identity". On the contrary, we claim that the problem of quantum non individuality goes deeper, and that one of its most important features is the fact that there are quantum systems for which particle number is not well defined. In this work, we continue this discussion in relation to the problem about the one and the many.
