Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 944)

Abstract

The present book is a follow up to the first book [26] which was aimed at introducing the new promising field of Topos Quantum Theory. Since the publication of the first volume many more exciting results have been developed. The aim of this second volume is to explain these new results.

For a thorough understanding of the topics in this book the reader is advised to first read volume one, since this book builds up on the concepts explained there. Nonetheless, in the introduction we will summarise the main results dealt with in [26] so as to refresh the reader with useful concepts which will be used throughout this book.
