Decoherence and Determinism in a One-Dimensional Cloud-Chamber Model  Latest Results for Foundations of Physics on 2018-4-01 12:00am GMT Abstract The hypothesis (Sparenberg et al. in EPJ Web Conf 58:01016, [1]. http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/epjconf/20135801016) that the particular linear tracks appearing in the measurement of a spherically-emitting radioactive source in a cloud chamber are determined by the (random) positions of atoms or molecules inside the… Read more →

Beyond the Dynamical Universe: Unifying Block Universe Physics and Time as Experienced

Theoretical physics and foundations of physics have not made much progress in the last few decades. Whether we are talking about unifying general relativity and quantum field theory (quantum gravity), explaining so-called dark energy and dark matter (cosmology), or the interpretation and implications of quantum mechanics and relativity, there is no consensus in sight. In addition, both enterprises are deeply… Read more →

Statistics on Lefschetz thimbles: Bell/Leggett-Garg inequalities and the classical-statistical approximation. (arXiv:2011.02657v1 [hep-th]) 上午10:08 | Zong-Gang Mou, Peter Millington, Paul M. Saffin, Anders Tranberg | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Inspired by Lefschetz thimble theory, we treat Quantum Field Theory as a statistical theory with a complex Probability Distribution Function (PDF). Such complex-valued PDFs permit the violation of Bell-type inequalities, which cannot… Read more →

Vacuum entanglement harvesting with a zero mode. (arXiv:2002.11790v1 [quant-ph]) 下午12:05 | Erickson Tjoa, Eduardo Martín-Martínez | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org We investigate vacuum entanglement harvesting in the presence of a zero mode. We show that, for a variety of detector models and couplings (namely, Unruh-DeWitt qubit and harmonic oscillator detectors, amplitude and derivative coupling), the results are strongly dependent on… Read more →

MOND vs. dark matter in light of historical parallels. (arXiv:1910.04368v1 [astro-ph.GA]) 2019年10月11日 星期五 下午8:32 | physics.hist-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Mordehai Milgrom MOND is a paradigm that contends to account for the mass discrepancies in the Universe without invoking `dark’ components, such as `dark matter’ and `dark energy’. It does so by supplanting Newtonian dynamics and General Relativity, departing from them… Read more →
