A Testable Theory for the Emergence of the Classical World
The transition from the quantum to the classical world is not yet understood. Here, we take a new approach. Central to this is the understanding that measurement and actualization cannot occur except


Is Relational Quantum Mechanics about Facts? If So, Whose? A Reply to Di Biagio and Rovelli's Comment on Brukner and Pienaar
Relational Quantum Mechanics is an interpretation of quantum theory championed by Rovelli [1, 2]. Recently, Brukner and Pienaar separately wrote critiques of RQM [3–5], to which Di Biagio and Rovelli
The mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics
Classical mechanics was first envisaged by Newton, formed into a powerful tool by Euler, and brought to perfection by Lagrange and Laplace. It has served as the paradigm of science ever since. Even
A Relational Formulation of Quantum Mechanics
Non-relativistic quantum mechanics is reformulated here based on the idea that relational properties among quantum systems, instead of the independent properties of a quantum system, are the most
A Quintet of Quandaries: Five No-Go Theorems for Relational Quantum Mechanics
Relational quantum mechanics (RQM) proposes an ontology of relations between physical systems, where any system can serve as an ‘observer’ and any physical interaction between systems counts as a
Relational quantum mechanics
I suggest that the common unease with taking quantum mechanics as a fundamental description of nature (the “measurement problem”) could derive from the use of an incorrect notion, as the unease with
Information is Physical: Cross-Perspective Links in Relational Quantum Mechanics
Relational quantum mechanics (RQM) is an interpretation of quantum mechanics based on the idea that quantum states describe not an absolute property of a system but rather a relationship between
Qubits are not observers -- a no-go theorem
The relational approach to quantum states asserts that the physical description of quantum systems is always relative to something or someone. In relational quantum mechanics (RQM) it is relative to
Quantum reference frames for general symmetry groups
A general operator for reversibly changing between quantum reference frames associated to a group $G$ is defined, which generalises the known operator for translations and boosts to arbitrary finite and locally compact groups, including non-Abelian groups.
The Relational Interpretation of Quantum Physics
The relational interpretation (or RQM, for Relational Quantum Mechanics) solves the measurement problem by considering an ontology of sparse relative events, or facts. Events are realized in
Relativity of quantum states and observables
Under the principle that quantum-mechanical observables are invariant under relevant symmetry transformations, we explore how the usual, non-invariant quantities may capture measurement statistics.
