# A Theory of Quantum Space-time

@article{Francis1999ATO, title={A Theory of Quantum Space-time}, author={Charles Francis}, journal={arXiv: General Physics}, year={1999} }

An interpretation and re-formulation of modern physics which removes the presumption of the space-time continuum, and bases physical theory on a small number of rational and empirical principles. After briefly describing the philosophical principles underlying the theory, we rigorously construct a discrete model of quantum mechanics. Kets are names, or labels which categorise states of matter but do not directly describe them. The principle of superposition is seen as a definitional truism in…

The purpose of this paper is to construct a quantum field theory suitable for describing quantum electrodynamics and Yang-Mills theory in a form which satisfies the conditions of the Millennium prize…

### A Model of Classical and Quantum Measurement

- Physics
- 1999

We take the view that physical quantities are values generated by processes in measurement, not pre-existent objective quantities, and that a measurement result is strictly a product of the apparatus…

### A Pre-Geometric Model Exhibiting Physical Law

- Physics
- 1999

We describe a substructure for matter in which metric relations are not assumed as properties of a physical manifold, and instead the metric of general relativity is found in configurations of…

### The Fabric of Space-time

- Physics
- 1999

The formulae of special relativity are developed through the k-calculus with no presumption of a manifold. The metric is determined empirically by the exchange of photons, and the treatment suggests…

### The Fabric of Space-time II: Gravity by Photon Exchange

- Physics
- 1999

This is one of a number of papers in which the metric for space-time is defined on the subatomic level by means of the interchange of photons, and constrained to be consistent with radar. It is shown…

Este artigo pretende discutir o conceito de espaco-tempo quântico a luz de uma analise filosofica aprofundada das principais ideias elaboradas sobre o tempo ao longo dos seculos. A partir dessa…

### An Alternative Model of Quark Confinement

- Physics
- 1999

In "A Theory of Quantum Space-time" we constructed a form of field theory in which Feynman diagrams describe real particle interactions, not virtual ones. In this paper we outline a theory of…
