Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics, and Interpretations of Violation of Bell's Inequality

- W. D. Muynck
- Mathematics, Physics
- 12 February 2001

The discussion of the foundations of quantum mechanics is complicated by the fact that a number of different issues are closely entangled. Three of these issues are i) the interpretation of… Expand

Nonideal quantum measurements

- H. Martens, W. D. Muynck
- Mathematics
- 1 March 1990

A partial ordering in the class of observables (∼ positive operator-valued measures, introduced by Davies and by Ludwig) is explored. The ordering is interpreted as a form of nonideality, and it… Expand

Interpretations of quantum mechanics, joint measurement of incompatible observables, and counterfactual definiteness

- W. D. Muynck, W. D. Baere, Heidi Martens
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1994

The validity of the conclusion to the nonlocality of quantum mechanics, accepted widely today as the only reasonable solution to the EPR and Bell issues, is questioned and criticized. Arguments are… Expand

Disturbance, conservation laws and the uncertainty principle

- H. Martens, W. D. Muynck
- Mathematics
- 21 September 1992

The interpretation of the uncertainty principle in terms of a measurement of a single observable disturbing other observables, originating in Heisenberg's 1927 paper, is shown to be derivable from an… Expand

Simultaneous measurement and joint probability distributions in quantum mechanics

- W. D. Muynck, P. A. Janssen, A. Santman
- Mathematics
- 1 February 1979

The problem of simultaneous measurement of incompatible observables in quantum mechanics is studied on the one hand from the viewpoint of an axiomatic treatment of quantum mechanics and on the other… Expand
