Dimensional reduction via a novel Higgs mechanism. (arXiv:1806.07520v1 [gr-qc] CROSS LISTED)  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-23 1:03am GMT Authors: Saurya Das, Mir Faizal Many theories of quantum gravity live in higher dimensions, and their reduction to four dimensions via mechanisms such as Kaluza-Klein compactification or brane world models have associated problems. We propose a novel mechanism of dimensional reduction via spontaneous… Read more →

Quantum gravity tomography. (arXiv:1806.05643v1 [hep-th])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-16 1:14am GMT Authors: William Donnelly The holographic principle posits that all quantum information in a region of spacetime is encoded on its boundary. While there is strong evidence for this principle in certain models of quantum gravity in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetime, it is yet to be established whether holography… Read more →

Why initial system-environment correlations do not imply the failure of complete positivity: a causal perspective. (arXiv:1806.02381v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-09 12:56am GMT Authors: David Schmid, Katja Reid, Robert W. Spekkens The common wisdom in the field of quantum information theory is that when a system is initially correlated with its environment, the map describing its evolution may fail to be… Read more →

Continuity of measurement outcomes. (arXiv:1805.12404v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-02 3:59am GMT Authors: J. Sperling It is demonstrated that the collapse of the wave function is equivalent to the continuity of measurement outcomes. The latter states that a second measurement has to result in the same outcome as the first measurement of the same observable for a vanishing time… Read more →

A theorem about time evolution in the quantum mechanics. (arXiv:1805.03689v1 [quant-ph])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-5-11 3:26am GMT Authors: M. A. Rajabpour Under broad conditions, we prove that the probability amplitudes in the quantum mechanics are either always constant in time or changing continuously in any interval of time.

Topic for 2018 Int’l Workshop on Quantum Foundations

I would like to discuss the Relativistic Transactional Interpretation, specifically the explicit derivation of the Born Rule for radiative processes as presented in my recent paper with John Cramer (https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.04501). It appears clear that TI and RTI provide a physical account of measurement as well as a physical derivation of the Born Rule. Previous objections to TI (such as that… Read more →
