Understanding Quantum Measurement from the Solution of Dynamical Models
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 187

Description:
The quantum measurement problem: why a unique outcome is obtained in each individual experiment, is currently tackled by solving models. After a general introduction, we review the many models proposed. Next, a flexible and realistic quantum model is introduced, describing the measurement of the z-component of a spin through interaction with a magnetic memory simulated by a Curie-Weiss magnet, including N >>1 spins coupled to a phonon bath.

Book cover: A Strict Epistemic Approach to PhysicsA Strict Epistemic Approach to Physics
by - arXiv
Here, we derive the formalism of QM from well-motivated epistemic principles. A key assumption is that in a proper physical theory, the introduction of entities or distinctions that are unknowable in principle is in conflict with the theory.
