Bridging the gaps between non-relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, this novel approach to quantum mechanics for graduate students and researchers extends the standard formalism to cover the observer and their apparatus. It includes key experiments and worked examples to encourage the reader to focus on empirically sound concepts and avoid metaphysical speculation.
