Quantum Theory at the Crossroads: Reconsidering the 1927 Solvay Conference

- G. Bacciagaluppi, A. Valentini
- Physics
- 24 September 2006

Part I. Perspectives on the 1927 Solvay Conference: 1. Historical introduction 2. De Broglie's pilot-wave theory 3. From matrix mechanics to quantum mechanics 4. Schrodinger's wave mechanics Part II.… Expand

Is logic empirical

- G. Bacciagaluppi
- Mathematics
- 1 May 2007

The philosophical debate about quantum logic between the late 1960s and the early 1980s was generated mainly by Putnam's claims that quantum mechanics empirically motivates introducing a new form of… Expand

Dynamics for Modal Interpretations

- G. Bacciagaluppi, M. Dickson
- Mathematics
- 1 August 1999

An outstanding problem in so-called modal interpretations of quantum mechanics has been the specification of a dynamics for the properties introduced in such interpretations. We develop a general… 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

Delocalized Properties in the Modal Interpretation of a Continuous Model of Decoherence

- G. Bacciagaluppi
- Mathematics
- 1 September 2000

I investigate the character of the definite properties defined by the Basic Rule in the Vermaas and Dieks' (1995) version of the modal interpretation of quantum mechanics, specifically for the case… Expand

Remarks on Space-Time and Locality in Everett’s Interpretation

- G. Bacciagaluppi
- Mathematics
- 2001

Interpretations that follow Everett's idea that (at some level of description) the universal wave function contains a multiplicity of coexisting realities, usually claim to give a completely local… Expand

Derivation of the Symmetry Postulates for Identical Particles from Pilot-Wave Theories

- G. Bacciagaluppi
- Physics
- 12 February 2003

The symmetries of the wavefunction for identical particles, including anyons, are given a rigorous non-relativistic generalisation within pilot-wave formulations of quantum mechanics. In particular,… Expand

Dynamics for Density Operator Interpretations of Quantum Theory

- G. Bacciagaluppi, M. Dickson
- Mathematics, Physics
- 20 November 1997

We first introduce and discuss density operator interpretations of quantum theory as a special case of a more general class of interpretations, giving special attention to a version that we call the… Expand
