Expressing QFT in terms of QM with single extra dimension and classical hidden variable field

Roman Sverdlov, University of Mississippi The goal of this paper is to re-express QFT in terms of two "classical" fields living in ordinary space with single extra dimension. The role of the first classical field is to set up an injection from the set of values of extra dimension into the set of functions, and then said injection will be used... Read more →

Resolving the problem of definite outcomes of measurements

Art Hobson, Emeritus Professor of Physics, U Arkansas. The heart of the measurement puzzle, namely the problem of definite outcomes, remains unresolved. This paper shows that Josef Jauch's 1968 reduced density operator approach is the solution, even though many question it: The entangled "Measurement State" implies local mixtures of definite but indeterminate eigenvalues even though the MS continues evolving unitarily. A second,... Read more →

A proposed resolution of the delayed-choice paradox

Michael B. Heaney (mheaney@alum.mit.edu) This paper proposes a resolution of the delayed-choice paradox of the Conventional Theory of quantum mechanics, where a particle seems to know what will happen in the future, and changes its present behavior accordingly. A comparison of the Conventional Theory with an Advanced Theory and a Symmetrical Theory of the same delayed-choice experiment suggests that the apparent paradox is caused... Read more →
