    Notes: This book presents the deterministic view of quantum mechanics developed by Nobel Laureate Gerard ’t Hooft. Dissatisfied with the uncomfortable gaps in the way conventional quantum mechanics meshes with the classical world, ’t Hooft has revived the old hidden variable ideas, but now in a much more systematic way than usual. In this, quantum mechanics is viewed as a tool rather than a theory. The author gives examples of models that are classical in essence, but can be analysed by the use of quantum techniques, and argues that even the Standard Model, together with gravitational interactions, might be viewed as a quantum mechanical approach to analysing a system that could be classical at its core. He shows how this approach, even though it is based on hidden variables, can be plausibly reconciled with Bell's theorem, and how the usual objections voiced against the idea of "superdeterminism" can be overcome, at least in principle. This framework elegantly explains - and automatically cures - the problems of the wave function collapse and the measurement problem. Even the existence of an "arrow of time" can perhaps be explained in a more elegant way than usual. As well as reviewing the author’s earlier work in the field, the book also contains many new observations and calculations. It provides stimulating reading for all physicists working on the foundations of quantum theory.

    Notes: Abstract Asymptotically free quantum field theories with planar Feynman diagrams [such as SU(∞) gauge theory] are considered in 4 dimensional Euclidean space. It is shown that if all particles involved have non-vanishing masses and if the coupling constant(s) γ (org 2) are small enough (λ≦λcrit), then an absolutely convergent procedure exists to obtain Green functions that uniquely solve the Dyson-Schwinger equations.

    Notes: Abstract Based on previous work we show how to join two Schwarzschild solutions, possibly with different masses, along null cylinders each representing a spherical shell of infalling or outgoing massless matter. One of the Schwarzschild masses can be zero, i.e. one region can be flat. The above procedure can be repeated to produce space-times with aC 0 metric describing several different (possibly flat) Schwarzschild regions separated by shells of matter. An exhaustive treatment of the ways of combining four such regions is given; the extension to many regions is then straightforward. Cases of special interest are: (1) the scattering of two spherical gravitational “shock waves” at the horizon of a Schwarzschild black hole, and (2) a configuration involving onlyone external universe, which may be relevant to quantization problems in general relativity. In the latter example, only an infinitesimal amount of matter is sufficient to remove the “Wheeler wormhole” to another universe.

    Notes: Abstract Renormalizable quantum field theories whose perturbation expansions are described by planar Feynman diagrams only, such as SU(∞) gauge theory, are considered in 4 dimensional Euclidean space. For studying asymptotic properties of the perturbation series one might wish to isolate first all those planar diagrams that do not contain any ultraviolet divergent subgraphs. In this paper it is proved that this infinite set of diagrams, when summed, converges within a finite radius of convergence for the coupling constant.
