Quantum Theory at the Crossroads: Reconsidering the 1927 Solvay Conference
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
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 ofExpand
Dynamics for Modal Interpretations
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 generalExpand
Quantum Theory at the Crossroads
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 thisExpand
Delocalized Properties in the Modal Interpretation of a Continuous Model of Decoherence
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 caseExpand
Remarks on Space-Time and Locality in Everett’s Interpretation
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 localExpand
Derivation of the Symmetry Postulates for Identical Particles from Pilot-Wave Theories
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
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 theExpand
Modal interpretations, decoherence and measurements
This work addresses Albert and Loewer's criticism of non-ideal measurements in the modal interpretation by examining the implications of the theory of decoherence for the modals interpretation, and finds new problems seem to arise in different models. Expand
