On the Birth of the Universe and Time. (arXiv:2203.12984v1 [gr-qc]) 上午8:58 | Natalia Gorobey, Alexander Lukyanenko, A. V. Goltsev | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org A theory of the initial state of the universe is proposed within the framework of the Euclidean quantum theory of gravity. The theory is based on a quantum representation in which the action functional is implemented… Read more →

Projective measurement of black holes. (arXiv:2203.04968v1 [hep-th]) 上午9:52 | Beni Yoshida | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org We study the effect of projective measurements on the entanglement structure of quantum black holes. It is shown that the entanglement verification in monitored quantum circuits, recently discussed in condensed matter physics, is equivalent to the information recovery from a black hole with projective… Read more →

The two classes of hybrid classical-quantum dynamics. (arXiv:2203.01332v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:50 | Jonathan Oppenheim, Carlo Sparaciari, Barbara Šoda, Zachary Weller-Davies | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Coupling between quantum and classical systems is consistent, provided the evolution is linear in the state space, preserves the split of systems into quantum and classical degrees of freedom, and preserves probabilities. The evolution law must… Read more →

Quantum correlations and ergotropy. (arXiv:2202.05050v1 [quant-ph]) 上午10:53 | Gianluca Francica | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Understanding the role of classical and quantum correlations in work extraction is a problem of fundamental importance in thermodynamics. We approach this problem by considering that, in closed quantum systems, the maximum cyclic work extractable is equal to the ergotropy. Thus, we aim to identify… Read more →

Temporal binding: digging into animal minds through time perception 上午8:00 | Latest Results for Synthese Abstract Temporal binding is the phenomenon in which events related as cause and effect are perceived by humans to be closer in time than they actually are (Haggard et al. in Nat Neurosci 5(4):382–385, 2002, https://doi.org/10.1038/nn827). Despite the fact that temporal binding experiments with humans… Read more →
