A Categorical Reconstruction of Quantum Theory. (arXiv:1804.02265v4 [quant-ph] UPDATED) 上午9:26 | Sean Tull | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org We reconstruct finite-dimensional quantum theory from categorical principles. That is, we provide properties ensuring that a given physical theory described by a dagger compact category in which one may `discard’ objects is equivalent to a generalised finite-dimensional quantum theory over a suitable… Read more →

Information geometry in quantum field theory: lessons from simple examples. (arXiv:2001.02683v1 [hep-th]) 上午10:07 | Johanna Erdmenger, Kevin T. Grosvenor, Ro Jefferson | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Motivated by the increasing connections between information theory and high-energy physics, particularly in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, we explore the information geometry associated to a variety of simple systems. By studying their… Read more →

The Platonic solids and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics. (arXiv:2001.00188v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:05 | Armin Tavakoli, Nicolas Gisin | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org The Platonic solids is the name traditionally given to the five regular convex polyhedra, namely the tetradron, the octahedron, the cube, the icosahedron and the dodecahedron. Perhaps strongly boosted by the towering historical influence of their namesake, these… Read more →

Quantum entanglement between an atom and a molecule. (arXiv:1912.05866v1 [quant-ph]) 上午9:42 | Yiheng Lin, David R. Leibrandt, Dietrich Leibfried, Chin-wen Chou | quant-ph updates on arXiv.org Conventional information processors freely convert information between different physical carriers to process, store, or transmit information. It seems plausible that quantum information will be carried by different physical carriers as well when developing systems… Read more →

The classical and the quantum paper

Hi, I would greatly appreciate any comments and critique of the paper https://arxiv.org/abs/1912.05914 with the abstract copied below. Thank you. -Alexey Newtonian and Schroedinger dynamics can be formulated in a physically meaningful way within the same Hilbert space framework. This fact was recently used to discover an unexpected relation between classical and quantum motions that goes beyond the results provided… Read more →
