Characterizing quantum instruments: from non-demolition measurements to quantum error correction. (arXiv:2110.06954v1 [quant-ph]) 2021年10月16日 星期六 上午11:02 | Roman Stricker, Davide Vodola, Alexander Erhard, Lukas Postler, Michael Meth, Martin Ringbauer, Philipp Schindler, Rainer Blatt, Markus Müller, Thomas Monz | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org In quantum information processing quantum operations are often processed alongside measurements which result in classical data. Due to the… Read more →

The Relativity Principle at the Foundation of Quantum Mechanics. (arXiv:2107.06942v1 [quant-ph]) 下午5:48 | W.M. Stuckey, Timothy McDevitt, Michael Silberstein | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Quantum information theorists have created axiomatic reconstructions of quantum mechanics (QM) that are very successful at identifying precisely what distinguishes quantum probability theory from classical and more general probability theories in terms of information-theoretic principles. Herein,… Read more →

Self-testing of physical theories, or, is quantum theory optimal with respect to some information-processing task?. (arXiv:2003.00349v3 [quant-ph] UPDATED) 上午9:18 | Mirjam Weilenmann, Roger Colbeck | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Self-testing usually refers to the task of taking a given set of observed correlations that are assumed to arise via a process that is accurately described by quantum theory, and trying… Read more →

Aharonov-Bohm effect with an effective complex-valued vector potential. (arXiv:2101.11914v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:14 | Ismael L. Paiva, Yakir Aharonov, Jeff Tollaksen, Mordecai Waegell | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org The interaction between a quantum charge and a quantized source of a magnetic field is considered in the Aharonov-Bohm scenario. It is shown that, if the source has a relatively small uncertainty while the… 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 →

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 →
