Determining the Quantum Expectation Value by Measuring a Single Photon: The first realisation of quantum protective measurements

F. Piacentini, A. Avella, E. Rebufello, R. Lussana, F. Villa, A. Tosi, M. Gramegna, G. Brida, E. Cohen, L. Vaidman, I. P. Degiovanni, M. Genovese Quantum mechanics, one of the keystones of modern physics, exhibits several peculiar properties, differentiating it from classical mechanics. One of the most intriguing is that variables might not have definite values. A complete quantum description provides only probabilities for obtaining various eigenvalues of a quantum variable....

(Information) Paradox Lost

Tim Maudlin Since Stephen Hawking's original 1975 paper on black hole evaporation, there has been a consensus that the problem of "loss of information" is both deep and troubling. It is also thought that resolution of the problem may hold some conceptual keys to the unification of gravity with the other forces. I argue that this consensus view is mistaken.... Read more →

On Participatory Realism

Christopher A. Fuchs To appear in "Information & Interaction: Eddington, Wheeler, and the Limits of Knowledge", edited by Ian T. Durham and Dean Rickles In the Philosophical Investigations, Ludwig Wittgenstein wrote, " 'I' is not the name of a person, nor 'here' of a place, .... But they are connected with names. ... [And] it is characteristic of physics not... Read more →
