The 2nd International Topoi Conference The Metaphysics of Quantum Mechanics will be held at the Corpus Christi College, Oxford on 2-3 October 2014. Here are list of speakers and links to the abstracts of their talks: Keynote Speakers: Valia Allori (Northern Illinois University) – ‘Quantum Mechanics and Paradigm Shift’ Angelo Cei (University of Rome) – ‘Reflections on Atomism, Quantum Mechanics and Mereology’ Mauro Dorato (University of Rome)… Read more →
This is the third chapter of the anthology Protective Measurement And Quantum Reality (CUP, 2014). Here is its abstract: Classical ergodicity retains its meaning in the quantum realm when the employed measurement is protective. This unique measuring technique is re-examined in the case of post-selection, giving rise to novel insights studied in the Heisenberg representation. Quantum statistical mechanics is then briefly described in terms… Read more →
The anthology Protective Measurement And Quantum Reality (CUP, 2014) is scheduled for release in November 2014. Here is part of the preface of the book. In 1993, Yakir Aharonov, Lev Vaidman and Jeeva Anandan discovered an important new method of measurement in quantum mechanics, the so-called protective measurement. Distinct from conventional measurements, protective measurement is a method for measuring the… Read more →
