A Testable Theory for the Emergence of the Classical World

- PhysicsEntropy
- 2022

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

- Philosophy
- 2021

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…

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…

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…

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 (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.…
