Introduction

This book examines the foundational consistency of quantum mechanics incorporated within relativistic frameworks. Quantum physics remains a perplexing formalism that, although very successful in explaining physical phenomena, poses many philosophical and interpretational questions. Several of the subtleties of quantum physics become more manifest when quantum processes are described using relativistic dynamics. For instance, the successful connection of spin to quantum statistics is a consequence of the consistent incorporation of special relativity into the quantum formalism. There should be similar profound explanations awaiting discovery as gravitating phenomena are successfully incorporated into quantum formulations.

The common ...
