Reply to Gillis’s “On the Analysis of Bell’s 1964 Paper by Wiseman, Cavalcanti, and Rieffel” (Open Review Paper)

Howard M. Wiseman, Eleanor G. Rieffel and Eric Cavalcanti We address Gillis’ recent criticism of a series of papers (by different combinations of the present authors) on formulations of Bell’s theorem. Those papers intended to address an unfortunate gap of communication between two broad camps in the quantum foundations community that we identify as “operationalists” and “realists”. Here, we once again urge… Read more →

Einstein’s Third Postulate. (arXiv:1506.09070v2 [physics.hist-ph] UPDATED) 2019年11月1日 星期五 下午4:01 | physics.hist-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Wolfgang Engelhardt Einstein’s own demonstration of time dilation taken from his book with L. Infeld (1938) is analyzed. His ingenious circumnavigation of an apparent discrepancy between clock synchronisation and Lorentz transformation is discussed. Finslerian geometrization of quantum mechanics in the hydrodynamical representation. (arXiv:1910.14114v1 [quant-ph]) 2019年11月1日 星期五… Read more →

An Entropic Dynamics Approach to Geometrodynamics. (arXiv:1910.01188v1 [gr-qc]) 下午12:34 | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Selman Ipek, Ariel Caticha In the Entropic Dynamics (ED) framework quantum theory is derived as an application of entropic methods of inference. The physics is introduced through appropriate choices of variables and of constraints that codify the relevant physical information. In previous work, a manifestly covariant ED… Read more →

Classical causal models cannot faithfully explain Bell nonlocality or Kochen-Specker contextuality in arbitrary scenarios. (arXiv:1909.05434v1 [quant-ph]) 下午12:56 | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: J. C. Pearl, E. G. Cavalcanti In a recent work, it was shown by one of us (EGC) that Bell-Kochen-Specker inequality violations in phenomena satisfying the no-disturbance condition (a generalisation of the no-signalling condition) cannot in general be explained… Read more →
