We consider the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox for the case of entangled spin-1/2 particles. Using several gedanken experiments, we show that it is not possible for the spin part of the wavefunction… Expand

We first consider the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox for the system of two particles with spin 1 2 with entangled spins in first-quantized quantum mechanics. If measurement is governed by… Expand

The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of emergent examples of macroscopic quantum phenomena. While quantum theory asserts that such quantum behaviors as superposition, entanglement, and… Expand

The shift from particle to field theories has been crumbling pillars of classical objective science, and is reverberating in philosophy of science. Fundamental issues implicit in objective… Expand

A survey probing respondents’ views on various foundational issues in quantum mechanics was recently created by Schlosshauer, Kofler, and Zeilinger and then given to 33 participants at a quantum… Expand

A survey probing respondents' views on various foundational issues in quantum mechanics was recently created by Schlosshauer, Kofler, and Zeilinger [arXiv:1301.1069] and then given to 33 participants… Expand

As cutting-edge experiments display ever more extreme forms of non-classical behavior, the prevailing view on the interpretation of quantum mechanics appears to be gradually changing. A (highly… Expand
