Einstein’s missed opportunity to rid us of ‘spooky actions at a distance’

Why do moving rulers shrink (length contraction) and moving clocks run slow (time dilation) such that everyone measures the same speed of light c, regardless of their relative motions? Einstein resolved this mystery at the turn of the 20th century in “principle fashion” by turning the question on its head. He invoked the relativity principle (AKA “no preferred reference frame”) and… Read more →

In memory of Bernard d’Espagnat (1921-2015)

We am very sorry to hear of the passing of Bernard d’Espagnat, a distinguished member of our Editorial Board. Prof. d’Espagnat died on 1 August 2015, at age 93 in Paris. He has made important contributions to the foundations of quantum mechanics, and is especially famous for his concept of ‘veiled reality’. He won the 2009 Templeton Prize. Prof. d’Espagnat had been supporting our journal and the… Read more →

Quantum Phenomena Modeled by Interactions between Many Classical Worlds

Michael J. W. Hall, Dirk-André Deckert, and Howard M. Wiseman, Quantum phenomena modelled by interactions between many classical worlds. Phys. Rev. X 4 041013 [17 pages] (2014). At the request of Dr Shan Gao, I’m posting here a short discussion of this new paper. This work is motivated by the quantum measurement problem, which suggests that orthodox quantum mechanics does not… Read more →

IJQF website is mobile ready

Our IJQF website has been upgraded to improve its speed and user experience. Moreover, the site is mobile ready. You can now visit the site with an iPad or a smart phone. For example, mobile visitors are able to navigate through the website and browse the Latest Papers on Quantum Foundations. Thanks to Frederick Townes and Sami Keijonen for their wonderful work!

IJQF launches preprint service

Although IJQF has a feed engine to search Latest Papers on Quantum Foundations worldwide and updates the list of papers daily, it is more convenient and helpful for members to upload their preprints and papers on quantum foundations in their IJQF blogs. Once these papers have been posted in the blogs, they are immediately visible to all members, and more importantly, other members can discuss… Read more →
