Aims, contents and method of the course

Coherence is considered to be the central concept in quantum superposition. The loss of coherence, decoherence, is often viewed as signifying the transition form quantum to classical. It is therefore of particular interest to investigate the question whether there might be any limits due to complexity or size of an object. In the seminar important publications on that topic will be discussed.
