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 heuristic function of duality 上午8:00 | Latest Results for Synthese Abstract I conceptualise the role of dualities in quantum gravity, in terms of their functions for theory construction. I distinguish between two functions of duality in physical practice: namely, discovering and describing ‘equivalent physics’, versus suggesting ‘new physics’. I dub these the ‘theoretical’ versus the ‘heuristic’ functions of dualities. The distinction… Read more →

Role of Quantum Optics in Synthesizing Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. (arXiv:1911.01642v2 [quant-ph] UPDATED) 上午9:43 | physics.hist-ph updates on arXiv.org Authors: Y. S. Kim Two-photon states produce enough symmetry needed for Dirac’s construction of the two-oscillator system which produces the Lie algebra for the O(3,2) space-time symmetry. This O(3,2) group can be contracted to the inhomogeneous Lorentz group which, according to Dirac,… Read more →
