Elementary Quantum Metaphysics
Once upon a time, the twentieth-century investigations of the behaviors of sub-atomic particles were thought to have established that there can be no such thing as an objective, observer-independent,Expand

Tails of Schrödinger’s Cat
IN HIS FAMOUS THOUGHT EXPERIMENT, Schrodinger (1935) imagined a cat that measures the value of a quantum mechanical observable with its life. Adapted to the measurement of x-spin of an electron, theExpand

Can we make sense out of the measurement process in relativistic quantum mechanics
We study the instantaneity of the state-reduction process in relativistic quantum mechanics. The conclusion of various authors that this instantaneity will restrict the set of relativisticExpand

States and observables in relativistic quantum field theories
We discuss two related issues pertaining to the foundations of relativistic quantum field theories. First: the question of observables; more particularly the question of what constraints, if any, areExpand
