Quantum Mechanics Introduction.* Quantum mechanics is a huge a territory including nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, relativistic quantum field theory, condensed matter theory, and quantum gravity. Each of these domains has multiple unique implications for mereology. Within each of these domains there are several different formalisms, each with its own potential implications for mereology. In addition, different interpretations of quantum mechanics provide different mereological ontologies: Quantum entanglement and superposition raise further questions concerning physical composition. If the quantum state completely describes a system but never collapses then it seems likely that the only system with definite physical properties is the entire universe – a dramatic failure of the properties of the whole to be determined by those of its parts! Moreover the radical indistinguishability of quantum ‘particles’ often associated with the (anti)- symmetrisation of the quantum state of a set of (fermions) bosons of the same species threatens to undermine their claim to exist as individual parts of the fusion of that set into a whole (Healey and Uffink, 2013: 20). Therefore this entry will largely (but not exclusively) be restricted to nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and will focus on superposition and entanglement sans larger interpretative schemas. …
