Letters from the famous physicist, Albert Einstein, hot properties, auction rooms the other day. In the last part, which is to be auctioned by Christie’s, gives an insight into Einstein’s thoughts on quantum physics, including his criticisms of the scientists for their lack of understanding of the subject matter.

Handwritten by Einstein in 1945, a 10-year period prior to his death, the letters were addressed to a Caltech theoretical physicist Paul Epstein, with Einstein, offering his “opinion” about the limits of quantum theory. In one of the letters, which are handwritten in German, and, as Einstein said, “God does not play dice with the universe,” giving an insight into his thoughts on the randomness of quantum mechanics.

“In response to Epstein’s own paper on the EPR [Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen] is a problem in the June issue of the American Journal of Physics, Einstein wrote, to make it clear as to why, exactly, he sees quantum mechanics as an “incomplete” theory,” as Well as ‘ s wrote in the book.”As Einstein and others have argued, the EPR paradox is that it is an objective, physical reality could not be clarified to be more accurate than Principle, unless the information is to be transferred from one particle to the other faster than the speed of light – which Einstein would later describe it as “spooky action at a distance”.

The principle behind this is known as quantum entanglement, which is the basis for quantum computing.

As defined by IBM Research for quantum computing (armor “of the quantum mechanical phenomena of superposition and entanglement to the states, which scale exponentially with the number of qubits, or quantum bits.” The potential applications of scientific breakthroughs, including the development of new drugs, and faster diagnosis of illnesses and to more energy efficient appliances, and financial strategies for retirement.

The letter particularly interesting in the Einstein’s thoughts on the subject, out of a total of 8 pages in length, with a number of hand-drawn charts of the famous physicist. According to LiveScience, Einstein has repeatedly clashed with the physicist Niels Bohr on the subject.

Einstein believed that “the science should seek to describe objective facts,” according to the letters, adding that the alternative would be to not be useful. “This is not the same as saying that one difference between a dream and reality is based on nothing more than a metaphysical prejudice,” he wrote.

In spite of his contempt for the quantum theories in his letters to Einstein, has to offer some praise for the letter: “My own opinion is this: The quantum theory in its present form it has been a very successful experiment, carried out with limited resources (concepts).”

The letters will be able to get north of $200,000 at an auction held in accordance with a pre-sale estimate by Christie’s.
