    An Analysis of the Aharonov-Anandan-Vaidman Model.Partha Ghose & Dipankar Home - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (7):1105-1109.
    We argue that the Aharonov-Anandan-Vaidman model, by using the notion of so-called “protective measurements,” cannot claim to have dispensed with the ldcollapse of the wave function,” because it does not succeed in avoiding the quantum measurement problem. Its claim to be able to distinguish between two nonorthogonal states is also critically examined.

    Wave-Particle Duality of Single-Photon States.Partha Ghose & Dipankar Home - 1992 - Foundations of Physics 22 (12):1435-1447.
    We review the present status of wave-particle duality of single-photon states in the context of some recent experiments. In particular, Bohr's complementarity principle is critically reexamined. It is explained in detail how this principle is confronted in these experiments and how a contradiction with the notion of “mutual exclusiveness” of classical wave and particle pictures emerges.

    A Continuous Transition Between Quantum and Classical Mechanics. I.Partha Ghose - 2002 - Foundations of Physics 32 (6):871-892.
    In spite of its popularity, it has not been possible to vindicate the conventional wisdom that classical mechanics is a limiting case of quantum mechanics. The purpose of the present paper is to offer an alternative formulation of mechanics which provides a continuous transition between quantum and classical mechanics via environment-induced decoherence.

  4. Einstein, Tagore and the Nature of Reality.Partha Ghose - 2016 - Routledge.
    The nature of reality has been a long-debated issue among scientists and philosophers. In 1930, Rabindranath Tagore and Albert Einstein had a long conversation on the nature of reality. This conversation has been widely quoted and discussed by scientists, philosophers and scholars from the literary world. The important question that Tagore and Einstein discussed was whether the world is a unity dependent on humanity, or the world is a reality independent on the human factor. Einstein took the stand adopted by (...)

  5. Tagore, Einstein and the Nature of Reality: Literary and Philosophical Reflections.Partha Ghose - 2019 - Routledge India.
    "The nature of reality has been a long-debated issue among scientists and philosophers. Rabindranath Tagore met Albert Einstein at the latter's house in Kaputh, Germany on 14th July 1930 and had a long conversation on the nature of reality. This conversation has been widely quoted and discussed by scientists, philosophers and scholars from the literary world. The important question that Tagore and Einstein discussed was whether the world is a unity dependent on humanity, or the world is a reality independent (...)

    Relativistic Quantum Mechanics of Spin-0 and Spin-1 Bosons.Partha Ghose - 1996 - Foundations of Physics 26 (11):1441-1455.
    It is shown that below the threshold of pair creation, a consistent quantum mechanical interpretation of relativistic spin-0 and spin-1 particles (both massive and mussless) ispossible based an the Hamiltonian-Schrödinger form of the firstorder Kemmer equation together with a first-class constraint. The crucial element is the identification of a conserved four-vector current associated with the equation of motion, whose time component is proportional to the energy density which is constrainedto be positive definite for allsolutions. Consequently, the antiparticles must be interpreted (...)

    The Two-Prism Experiment and Wave-Particle Duality of Light.Partha Ghose & Dipankar Home - 1996 - Foundations of Physics 26 (7):943-953.
    A number of papers on wave-particle duality has appeared since the two-prism experiment was performed by Mizobuchi and Ohtake, based on a suggestion by Ghose, Home, and Agarwal. Against this backdrop, the present paper provides further clarification of the key issues involved in the analysis of the two-prism experiment. In the process, we present an overview of wave-particle duality vis-a vis Bohr's complementarity principle.
