Weekly Papers on Quantum Foundations (15)

A new kind of cyclic universe. (arXiv:1904.08022v1 [gr-qc] CROSS LISTED)  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2019-4-20 12:59am GMT Authors: Anna Ijjas, Paul J. Steinhardt Combining intervals of ekpyrotic (ultra-slow) contraction with a (non-singular) classical bounce naturally leads to a novel cyclic theory of the universe in which the Hubble parameter, energy density and temperature oscillate periodically, but the scale factor grows by… Read more →

Bohm’s approach to quantum mechanics: Alternative theory or practical picture?. (arXiv:1707.00609v2 [quant-ph] UPDATED)  physics.hist-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2018-10-06 12:59am GMT Authors: A. S. Sanz Since its inception Bohmian mechanics has been generally regarded as a hidden-variable theory aimed at providing an objective description of quantum phenomena. To date, this rather narrow conception of Bohm’s proposal has caused it more rejection… Read more →

Spacetime and Physical Equivalence   Fundamental limits on quantum dynamics based on entropy change. (arXiv:1707.06584v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2017-7-21 2:13am GMT Authors: Siddhartha Das, Sumeet Khatri, George Siopsis, Mark M. Wilde It is well known in the realm of quantum mechanics and information theory that the entropy is non-decreasing for the class of unital physical processes. However, in general, the entropy… Read more →

Quantum Probabilities as Behavioral Probabilities. (arXiv:1703.05691v1 [q-bio.NC])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2017-3-18 9:36am GMT Authors: V.I. Yukalov, D. Sornette We demonstrate that behavioral probabilities of human decision makers share many common features with quantum probabilities. This does not imply that humans are some quantum objects, but just shows that the mathematics of quantum theory is applicable to the description of human… Read more →
