Submission: Quantifying Absorption in the Transactional Interpretation

R. E. Kastner, John G. Cramer  3 Feb. 2018

Abstract: The Transactional Interpretation offers a solution to the measurement problem by identifying specific physical conditions precipitating the non-unitary `measurement transition’ of von Neumann. Specifically, the transition occurs as a result of absorber response (a process lacking in the standard approach to the theory).  The purpose of this Letter is to make clear that, despite recent claims to the contrary, the concepts of `absorber’ and `absorber response,’ as well as the process of absorption, are physically and quantitatively well-defined in the transactional picture.
