Overview

The field of macroscopic quantum phenomena has been around for more than 20 years--since work by Leggett and collaborators introduced the notion that it was possible to have macroscopic objects with microscopic energy scales, thus opening the possibility of actually realizing a version of Schrödinger's cat in the lab--but there's still no clear consensus about what MQP means. Fourteen chapters by US, European, Russian, and Japanese physicists review recent developments in the field with the intention, the editors say, of providing a springboard for further study and investigation.
