Quantum Mechanics at the Macroscopic Level
Since most participants at this conference come from sub-areas of physics different from the one in which most of the technical work associated with the subject of this talk has been done (namely superconducting devices exploiting the Josephson effect), I thought that rather than talking about the technical details it might be more interesting to review the general motivation for the work and the philosophy associated with it. An additional reason for doing so is that I believe that the sorts of effects we are looking for in the superconducting-device area may also occur in other systems, and are most likely to occur in those which show the strongly nonlinear behavior which is the subject of this conference.
