Protective Measurement and Quantum Reality: Towards a New Understanding of Quantum Mechanics

Protective measurements offer an intriguing method for measuring the wave function of a single quantum system. With contributions from leading physicists and philosophers of physics - including two of the original discoverers of this important method - this book explores the concept of protective measurement, investigating its broad applications and deep implications. Addressing both physical and philosophical aspects, it covers... Read more →

A Rationalist Algorithmic Reconstruction of Quantum Mechanics

An attempt is made to reconstruct the postulates of quantum mechanics a priori from rationalist first principles, based on an algorithmic epistemology. The result, I suggest, is close enough to quantum mechanics to potentially serve as the basis for a consistent algorithmic interpretation of it. As a variation on the many worlds (or Everett) interpretation, such a framework provides a... Read more →
