QM notes with entanglement, Bell, decoherence, etc.

  1. Aug 5, 2015 #1
    Does anyone know of QM notes (or a review article) that covers entanglement, the measurement problem, Bell inequalities, decoherence, or the delayed choice experiment (or the more recent mesoscopic experiments). So to speak the more modern and the exciting aspects of QM. I think closest to that are the Susskind lecture notes. But browsing the net I came to believe that 99 percent of the notes do not even mention entanglement. That's a bit of a shame and hard to understand.

    thanks

    Most of it you will find in
    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0209123
    and
    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0609163

    Those two papers say nothing about decoherence, so for decoherence I recommend
    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0312059
    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9803052
    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0306072

    All the lectures above are specialized only to this "modern" stuff. If you want more complete lectures with all the "standard" stuff but also some "modern" stuff, see
    http://lanl.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0605180v5

    All the above are free lectures. If you want a proper (non-free) book on this stuff, I highly recommend
