Signal-locality in hidden-variables theories

- A. Valentini
- Physics
- 17 June 2001

Abstract We prove that all deterministic hidden-variables theories, that reproduce quantum theory for a ‘quantum equilibrium’ distribution of hidden variables, predict the existence of instantaneous… Expand

Time scales for dynamical relaxation to the Born rule

- M. D. Towler, N. Russell, A. Valentini
- Physics
- Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical…
- 8 March 2011

We illustrate through explicit numerical calculations how the Born rule probability densities of non-relativistic quantum mechanics emerge naturally from the particle dynamics of de Broglie–Bohm… Expand

Dynamical origin of quantum probabilities

- A. Valentini, H. Westman
- Physics
- Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical…
- 4 March 2004

We study the origin of the Born probability rule ρ = |ψ|2 in the de Broglie–Bohm pilot–wave formulation of quantum theory. It is argued that quantum probabilities arise dynamically, and have a status… Expand

Quantum Theory at the Crossroads

- G. Bacciagaluppi, A. Valentini
- Physics
- 1 November 2013

The 1927 Solvay conference was perhaps the most important meeting in the history of quantum theory. Contrary to popular belief, the interpretation of quantum theory was not settled at this… Expand

Inflationary Cosmology as a Probe of Primordial Quantum Mechanics

- A. Valentini
- Physics
- 1 May 2008

We show that inflationary cosmology may be used to test the statistical predictions of quantum theory at very short distances and at very early times. Hidden-variables theories, such as the… Expand

Subquantum information and computation

- A. Valentini
- Physics
- 11 March 2002

It is argued that immense physical resources — for nonlocal communication, espionage, and exponentially-fast computation — are hidden from us by quantum noise, and that this noise is not fundamental… Expand
