Precedence and freedom in quantum physics (Open Review Paper)

Lee Smolin (Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics) A new interpretation of quantum mechanics is proposed according to which precedence, freedom and novelty play central roles. This is based on a modification of the postulates for quantum theory given by Masanes and Muller. We argue that quantum mechanics is uniquely characterized as the probabilistic theory in which individual systems have maximal... Read more →

Leggett-Garg Inequalities, Pilot Waves and Contextuality (Open Review Paper)

Proud to support the new journal! Here is my first submission: note on Leggett-Garg 4. Abstract: In this paper we first analyse Leggett and Garg's argument to the effect that macroscopic realism contradicts quantum mechanics. After making explicit all the assumptions in Leggett and Garg's reasoning, we argue against the plausibility of their auxiliary assumption of non-invasive measurability, using Bell's construction...
