What Retrocausal Explanations Look Like

Ken Wharton Submitted to “Quantum Nonlocality and Reality – 50 Years of Bell’s theorem” While it is generally known that retrocausal models can provide an account of Bell-inequality violations in terms of spacetime-local beables, new models can now explicitly show how this comes about. By analyzing a simple local-beable model that precisely recovers the quantum joint probabilities for measurements on… Read more →

The Frustration of being Odd: How Boundary Conditions can destroy Local Order. (arXiv:1908.10876v1 [cond-mat.stat-mech]) 上午10:25 | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Vanja Marić, Salvatore Marco Giampaolo, Domagoj Kuić, Fabio Franchini A central tenant in the classification of phases is that boundary conditions cannot affect the bulk properties of a system. In this work we show striking, yet puzzling, evidence of a clear violation of… Read more →

Are Retrocausal Accounts of Entanglement Unnaturally Fine-Tuned?

D. Almada, K. Ch’ng, S. Kintner, B. Morrison and K.B. Wharton An explicit retrocausal model is used to analyze the general Wood-Spekkens argument [1] that any causal explanation of Bell-inequality violations must be unnaturally fine-tuned to avoid signaling. The no-signaling aspects of the model turn out to be robust under variation of the only free parameter, even as the probabilities… Read more →
