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

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, the… Expand

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 relativistic… Expand

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, are… Expand
