Remembering John Bell

Roman Jackiw Department of Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology John Bell and I met and became acquainted in 1967, when I went to CERN for a year-long research visit, soon after finishing my doctoral studies a Cornell. At that time, particle physics theory was dominated, as it happens from time-to-time, by a single idea; there was broad agreement among theorists… Read more →

First iWorkshop on the Meaning of the Wave Function

First iWorkshop on the Meaning of the Wave Function

During recent years, there is increasing interest in the ontological status and meaning of the wave function, and it seems that there is even a shift in research focus from the measurement problem to the problem of interpreting the wave function. This motivates us to organize an online workshop on the meaning of the wave function. The workshop aims to… Read more →

IJQF website is mobile ready

Our IJQF website has been upgraded to improve its speed and user experience. Moreover, the site is mobile ready. You can now visit the site with an iPad or a smart phone. For example, mobile visitors are able to navigate through the website and browse the Latest Papers on Quantum Foundations. Thanks to Frederick Townes and Sami Keijonen for their wonderful work!

IJQF launches preprint service

Although IJQF has a feed engine to search Latest Papers on Quantum Foundations worldwide and updates the list of papers daily, it is more convenient and helpful for members to upload their preprints and papers on quantum foundations in their IJQF blogs. Once these papers have been posted in the blogs, they are immediately visible to all members, and more importantly, other members can discuss… Read more →
