Constraints on Determinism: Bell Versus Conway–Kochen
Bell’s Theorem from Physics 36:1–28 (1964) and the (Strong) Free Will Theorem of Conway and Kochen from Notices AMS 56:226–232 (2009) both exclude deterministic hidden variable theories (or, inExpand
On the Colbeck-Renner Theorem
In three papers Colbeck and Renner (Nature Communications 2:411, (2011); Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 150402 (2012); arXiv:1208.4123) argued that "no alternative theory compatible with quantum theory andExpand
Indeterminism and Undecidability
The aim of this paper is to argue that the (alleged) indeterminism of quantum mechanics, claimed by adherents of the Copenhagen interpretation since Born (1926), can be proved from Chaitin'sExpand
The Fine-Tuning Argument: Exploring the Improbability of Our Existence
Our laws of nature and our cosmos appear to be delicately fine-tuned for life to emerge, in a way that seems hard to attribute to chance. In view of this, some have taken the opportunity to reviveExpand
On the notion of free will in the Free Will Theorem
The (Strong) Free Will Theorem of Conway \& Kochen (2009) on the one hand follows from uncontroversial parts of modern physics and elementary mathematical and logical reasoning, but on the other handExpand
I Am a Strange Loop
Strict deformation quantization of the state space of Mk(ℂ) with applications to the Curie–Weiss model
Increasing tensor powers of the $k\times k$ matrices $M_k({\mathbb{C}})$ are known to give rise to a continuous bundle of $C^*$-algebras over $I=\{0\}\cup 1/\mathbb{N}\subset[0,1]$ with fibersExpand
Some Comments on the History, Theory, and Applications of Symplectic Reduction
In this Preface, we make some brief remarks about the history, theory and applications of symplectic reduction. We concentrate on developments surrounding our paper Marsden and Weinstein [1974] andExpand
