Characterizing Quantum Theory in Terms of Information-Theoretic Constraints

- Rob Clifton, J. Bub, Hans Halvorson
- Computer Science, Physics
- 15 November 2002

We show that three fundamental information-theoretic constraints—the impossibility of superluminal information transfer between two physical systems by performing measurements on one of them, the… Expand

Algebraic Quantum Field Theory

- Hans Halvorson, Michael Mueger
- Mathematics, Physics
- 1 February 2006

Algebraic quantum field theory provides a general, mathematically precise description of the structure of quantum field theories, and then draws out consequences of this structure by means of various… Expand

What Scientific Theories Could Not Be*

- Hans Halvorson
- Mathematics
- Philosophy of Science
- 23 March 2012

According to the semantic view of scientific theories, theories are classes of models. I show that this view—if taken literally—leads to absurdities. In particular, this view equates theories that… Expand

No Place for Particles in Relativistic Quantum Theories?

- Hans Halvorson, Rob Clifton
- Physics
- Philosophy of Science
- 1 March 2002

David Malament (1996) has recently argued that there can be no relativistic quantum theory of (localizable) particles. We consider and rebut several objections that have been made against the… Expand

Deep beauty : understanding the quantum world through mathematical innovation

- Hans Halvorson
- Mathematics
- 2011

Part I. Beyond the Hilbert Space Formalism: Category Theory: 1. A prehistory of n-categorical physics John C. Baez and Aaron Lauda 2. A universe of processes and some of its guises Bob Coecke 3.… Expand

Entanglement and Open Systems in Algebraic Quantum Field Theory

- Rob Clifton, Hans Halvorson
- Physics
- 28 January 2000

Abstract Entanglement has long been the subject of discussion by philosophers of quantum theory, and has recently come to play an essential role for physicists in their development of quantum… Expand

No place for particles in relativistic quantum theories

- Hans Halvorson, Rob Clifton
- Physics
- 8 March 2001

Several recent arguments purport to show that there can be no relativistic, quantum-mechanical theory of localizable particles and, thus, that relativity and quantum mechanics can be reconciled only… Expand

Are Rindler Quanta Real? Inequivalent Particle Concepts in Quantum Field Theory

- Rob Clifton, Hans Halvorson
- Physics
- The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science
- 5 August 2000

Philosophical reflection on quantum field theory has tended to focus on how it revises our conception of what a particle is. However, there has been relatively little discussion of the threat to the… Expand
