Resolving the Problem of Definite Outcomes of Measurements

Art Hobson (University of Arkansas) The entangled "Schrodinger's cat state" of a quantum and its measurement apparatus is not a paradoxical superposition of states but is instead a non-paradoxical superposition of nonlocal coherent correlations between states: An un-decayed nucleus is correlated with a live cat, and a decayed nucleus is correlated with a dead cat. This elucidation of entanglement is demonstrated by quantum-theoretical analysis and... Read more →
