Physics teacher writes book

Connor Reese

Upper school science teacher Antonio Nassar co-authored a research book entitled “Quantum Measurement in Bohmian Mechanics.”

Nassar wrote the book with professor Salvador Merte-Artes from the Spanish Institute of Technology, what Nassar calls “the center for theoretical research in Europe.”

Nassar has over 60 published academic articles, and his knowledge and research from those papers helped him write the book. It focuses on Bohmian Mechanics, an interpretation of quantum theory.

He said Springer Publishing approached him and Merte-Artes to write the book.

“It’s very rewarding to have a publisher like Springer contact me,” Nassar said. “It gives me a lot of pride.”

Although there is not a specific release date for the book yet, Nassar believes it will be out within the next year after extensive editing. He plans to expand on his current research and possibly write an additional book.

“There are a lot of things that can still be done [in this field],” Nassar said. “You can’t cover everything using one approach.”
