Lapsing Quickly into Fatalism: Bell on Backward Causation

Travis Norsen, Huw Price This is a dialogue between Huw Price and Travis Norsen, loosely inspired by a letter that Price received from J. S. Bell in 1988. The main topic of discussion is Bell’s views about retrocausal approaches to quantum theory, and their relevance to contemporary issues. Full text

Approaches to causality and multi-agent paradoxes in non-classical theories. (arXiv:2102.02393v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:10 | V. Vilasini | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org This thesis reports progress in the analysis of causality and multi-agent logical paradoxes in quantum and post-quantum theories. These research areas are highly relevant for the foundations of physics as well as the development of quantum technologies. In the first… Read more →

From probabilistic mechanics to quantum theory. (arXiv:1907.08513v1 [quant-ph]) 下午3:18 | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Ulf Klein We show that quantum theory (QT) is a substructure of classical probabilistic physics. The central quantity of the classical theory is Hamilton’s function $H(q,p)$, which determines canonical equations, a corresponding flow $\phi_{t}^{H}$, and a Liouville equation for the probability density $\rho(q,p,t)$. We extend this… Read more →
