Gravitation in terms of observables. (arXiv:1802.02661v1 [gr-qc])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-2-10 12:53am GMT Authors: Rodolfo Gambini, Jorge Pullin In the 1960’s, Mandelstam proposed a new approach to gauge theories and gravity based on loops. The program for gauge theories was completed for Yang–Mills theories by Gambini and Trias in the 1980’s. Gauge theories could be understood as representations of certain… Read more →

Causality, unitarity and stability in quantum gravity: a non-perturbative perspective. (arXiv:2206.04072v1 [hep-th]) 上午9:50 | gr-qc updates on arXiv.org Authors: Alessia Platania Resumming quantum fluctuations at the level of the gravitational path integral is expected to result in non-local effective actions and thus in a non-trivial momentum dependence of the propagator. Which properties the (dressed) graviton propagator has to satisfy and whether… Read more →

Page-Wootters formulation of indefinite causal order. (arXiv:2105.02304v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:33 | Veronika Baumann, Marius Krumm, Philippe Allard Guérin, Časlav Brukner | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org One of the most fundamental open problems in physics is the unification of general relativity and quantum theory to a theory of quantum gravity. An aspect that might become relevant in such a theory is that… Read more →

Revisiting the compatibility problem between the gauge principle and the observability of the canonical orbital angular momentum in the Landau problem. (arXiv:2104.10885v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:11 | M. Wakamatsu, Y. Kitadono, L.-P. Zou, P.-M. Zhang | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org As is widely-known, the eigen-functions of the Landau problem in the symmetric gauge are specified by two quantum numbers. The first is… Read more →

Violation of Heisenberg’s Error-Disturbance Relation by Stern-Gerlach Measurements. (arXiv:2009.01646v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:15 | Yuki Inoue, Masanao Ozawa | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Although “Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle” is represented by a rigorously proven relation about intrinsic indeterminacy in quantum states, Heisenberg’s error-disturbance relation (EDR) has been commonly believed as another aspect of the principle. However, recent developments of quantum measurement theory made… Read more →
