About the Author

Ruth E. Kastner is a Research Associate and member of the Foundations of Physics group at University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP). She is the recipient of two National Science Foundation awards for research in time symmetry issues and the transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics, and she also received the 2021 Research Award from the Alumni Association of the University of Maryland.


'The Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics is based on the profound insight that quantum theory can be regarded as describing a world of possibility that lies beneath our ordinary experienced world of actuality. This second edition of Ruth Kastner's book develops the idea in important ways relative to the first edition, responding with clarity to objections that have been raised and giving many interesting illustrations of key ideas. A thought-provoking book.' George Ellis, University of Cape Town
'Kastner writes as if she wants the reader to understand what she is saying, not just to be impressed with how smart she must be to understand the material. This is a boon for those who aren't professionals in the field of quantum mechanics. This book provides a sharp description of the interpretation problem within quantum mechanics and a convincing argument that the Relativistic Transactional Interpretation is the correct choice.' Dean S. Hartley III, Hartley Consulting, Oak Ridge
