Gravitation in terms of observables. (arXiv:1802.02661v1 [gr-qc])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-2-10 12:53am GMT Authors: Rodolfo Gambini, Jorge Pullin In the 1960's, Mandelstam proposed a new approach to gauge theories and gravity based on loops. The program for gauge theories was completed for Yang--Mills theories by Gambini and Trias in the 1980's. Gauge theories could be understood as representations of certain... Read more →

How to Build an Infinite Lottery Machine We propose two novel alternative manners of doing so, `no-leaking' (roughly that information gain causes disturbance) and `purity of cups' (roughly the existence of entangled states). Interestingly, these turn out to be equivalent in any process theory with cups and caps. Additionally, we show how the standard purification postulate can then be seen... Read more →

Chalmers in The conscious mind, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1996; The character of consciousness, Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2010) in light of a hyperintensional regimentation of...
