Editors: Friedman, Jonathan R. ; Han, Siyuan (Amherst College)
Book Description:
Despite the twenty-year existence of the field of macroscopic quantum phenomena (MQP), there is no clear consensus about what MQP means. While it is not hard to decide if a system is a macroscopic or quantum, it is difficult to determine when both conditions exist. This book presents a selection of papers on new discoveries in the study of MQP, with the hope of serving as a starting point for further investigation.
