Reply to Gillis's "On the Analysis of Bell's 1964 Paper by Wiseman, Cavalcanti, and Rieffel" (Open Review Paper)

Howard M. Wiseman, Eleanor G. Rieffel and Eric Cavalcanti We address Gillis' recent criticism of a series of papers (by different combinations of the present authors) on formulations of Bell's theorem. Those papers intended to address an unfortunate gap of communication between two broad camps in the quantum foundations community that we identify as ``operationalists'' and ``realists''. Here, we once again urge... Read more →

Decompositional equivalence: A fundamental symmetry underlying quantum theory

Chris Fields Decompositional equivalence is the principle that there is no preferred decomposition of the universe into subsystems. It is shown here, by using a simple thought experiment, that quantum theory follows from decompositional equivalence together with Landauer’s principle. This demonstration raises within physics a question previously left to psychology: how do human - or any - observers identify or agree about what... Read more →
