Bell's theorem
The origins of this topic is a famous paper by Einstein, Rosen and Podolsky (EPR) in 1935; its title was Can Quantum-Mechanical Description of Physical Reality be Considered Complete? They consideredExpand
Quantum equilibrium and the origin of absolute uncertainty
The quantum formalism is a “measurement” formalism-a phenomenological formalism describing certain macroscopic regularities. We argue that it can be regarded, and best be understood, as arising fromExpand
Boltzmann's Approach to Statistical Mechanics
In the last quarter of the nineteenth century, Ludwig Boltzmann explained how irreversible macroscopic laws, in particular the second law of thermodynamics, originate in the time-reversible laws ofExpand
On the Common Structure of Bohmian Mechanics and the Ghirardi–Rimini–Weber Theory
Bohmian mechanics and the Ghirardi–Rimini–Weber theory provide opposite resolutions of the quantum measurement problem: the former postulates additional variables (the particle positions) besides theExpand
Bohmian mechanics and quantum theory: an appraisal
Preface. I: Bohmian Mechanics: Background and Fundamentals. 1. The Causal Quantum Theory Program J.T. Cushing. 2. Bohmian Mechanics as the Foundation of Quantum Mechanics D. Durr, et al. 3.Expand
Bohmian Mechanics
Bohmian mechanics is a quantum theory with a clear ontology and the status and the role of of the quantum formalism is clarified. Expand
Quantum physics without quantum philosophy
Abstract Quantum philosophy, a peculiar twentieth-century malady, is responsible for most of the conceptual muddle plaguing the foundations of quantum physics. When this philosophy is eschewed, oneExpand
Can Bohmian mechanics be made relativistic?
It is argued that the possibility that, instead of positing it as extra structure, the required foliation could be covariantly determined by the wave function allows for the formulation of Bohmian theories that seem to qualify as fundamentally Lorentz invariant. Expand
Quantum Equilibrium and the Role of Operators as Observables in Quantum Theory
Bohmian mechanics is arguably the most naively obvious embedding imaginable of Schrödinger's equation into a completely coherent physical theory. It describes a world in which particles move in aExpand
