In this book the process of decoherence is reviewed from both the theoretical & the experimental physicist's point of view. Implications of this important concept for fundamental problems of quantum theory & for chemistry & biology are also given. This broad review of decoherence addresses researchers & graduate students. It could also be used in seminar work.
