Dimensional reduction via a novel Higgs mechanism. (arXiv:1806.07520v1 [gr-qc] CROSS LISTED)  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-23 1:03am GMT Authors: Saurya Das, Mir Faizal Many theories of quantum gravity live in higher dimensions, and their reduction to four dimensions via mechanisms such as Kaluza-Klein compactification or brane world models have associated problems. We propose a novel mechanism of dimensional reduction via spontaneous… Read more →

Quantum gravity tomography. (arXiv:1806.05643v1 [hep-th])  hep-th updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-16 1:14am GMT Authors: William Donnelly The holographic principle posits that all quantum information in a region of spacetime is encoded on its boundary. While there is strong evidence for this principle in certain models of quantum gravity in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetime, it is yet to be established whether holography… Read more →

Why initial system-environment correlations do not imply the failure of complete positivity: a causal perspective. (arXiv:1806.02381v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-09 12:56am GMT Authors: David Schmid, Katja Reid, Robert W. Spekkens The common wisdom in the field of quantum information theory is that when a system is initially correlated with its environment, the map describing its evolution may fail to be… Read more →

Continuity of measurement outcomes. (arXiv:1805.12404v1 [quant-ph])  quant-ph updates on arXiv.org on 2018-6-02 3:59am GMT Authors: J. Sperling It is demonstrated that the collapse of the wave function is equivalent to the continuity of measurement outcomes. The latter states that a second measurement has to result in the same outcome as the first measurement of the same observable for a vanishing time… Read more →
