Quantum measurements as weighted symmetry breaking processes: the hidden measurement perspective

The purpose of the present note is twofold. Firstly, we highlight the similarities between the ontologies of Kastner’s possibilist transactional interpretation (PTI) of quantum mechanics – an extension of Cramer’s transactional interpretation – and the authors’ hidden-measurement interpretation (HMI). Secondly, we observe that although a weighted symmetry breaking (WSB) process was proposed in the PTI, to explain the actualization of incipient transactions,… Read more →
