By Bernard D'Espagnat

Qu'est-ce que los angeles réalité? 
Le physicien Bernard d'Espagnat aborde ici los angeles query du "réel", défendant l'idée qu'il serait intellectuellement discutable de prétendre l. a. traiter sans tenir compte des leçons de l. a. body moderne. Il apporte l'éclairage de l. a. philosophie classique, et celui de los angeles technology contemporaine. Ce livre est donc une brillante initiation aux problématiques de los angeles body, technology qui entre toutes a connu récemment les plus grands bouleversements.

"Alors que j'étais étudiant à l'École centrale, un ami m'offrit À l. a. recherche du réel, qui  venait de paraître. Je le dévorais aussitôt en annotant chacune de ses pages." Etienne Klein.

Physically it can be described by a canonical ensemble of harmonic oscillators, where the mean photon number of these oscillators, is nth = (eβ − 1)−1 and β = Ω/(kB T ) (compare to Sect. 21)). If T → 0 (which means β → ∞), then nth → 0 and no photons are excited. If T → ∞ (which means β → 0), then the mean number of excited photons goes to ∞. We envisage a radiation field built up by a large amount of single radiation sources. The single sources are made up of an incoherent superposition of coherent states.

4 show these spectra for a certain parameter set, specified in the drawings. For large phase shifts (Fig. 3) an oscillatory spectrum appears. 05 Fig. 3. 13). 5 there are no zero points in the region around k/k0 = 1. Due to the large phase shift (k/k0 )(Ld k0 − Lc k0 ), the spectra exhibit a distinct oscillatory pattern. σ = (δk)/k0 . 05 Fig. 4. 13). Due to a relatively small phase shift (k/k0 )(Ld k0 − Lc k0 ) the h-spectrum exhibits an almost Gaussian pattern. Further parameters: k0 = 1 and lc = ld pattern of |αh (k)|2 (Fig.

A single-photon interference experiment was performed by Grangier and co-workers [13]. Here a Mach–Zehnder interferometer is employed to observe real single-photon interferences [14, 15], where the photon source is a parametric down-conversion source. Thereby the intensities are very low. Nevertheless, the interference pattern of accumulated photons shows perfect interference fringes. This confirms that the quantum state is not just a statistical property of an ensemble of particles. It must be emphasized that the conceptual questions arising for photon interference are the same as those arising for interference of massive particles like neutrons.
