We draw systematic parallels between the measurement problem in quantum mechanics and the information loss problem in black holes. Then we proceed to propose a solution of the former along the lines of the solution of the latter which is based on the holographic gauge/gravity duality. The proposed solution is based on 1) the quantum dualism between the local view of reality provided by Copenhagen and the manifold view provided by the many-worlds and on 2) the properties of quantum entanglement…

The Vertical Logic of Hamiltonian Methods (Part 1)

We discuss the key role that Hamiltonian notions play in physics. Five examples are given that illustrate the versatility and generality of Hamiltonian notions. The given examples concern the

The possibility of constructing a relativistic space of information states based on the theory of complexity and analogies with physical space-time

The information analog of the principle of least action is found and the main problems of information dynamics in the constructed space are formulated.



On the interpretation of measurement in quantum theory

It is demonstrated that neither the arguments leading to inconsistencies in the description of quantum-mechanical measurement nor those “explaining” the process of measurement by means of

Is the Moon There When Nobody Looks? Reality and the Quantum Theory

In May 1935, Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen published an argument that quantum mechanics fails to provide a complete description of physical reality. Today, 50 years later, the EPR

Lectures on Gravity and Entanglement

In these notes, we review connections between quantum gravity and quantum information theory in the AdS/CFT correspondence. We describe connections between entanglement structure of the CFT state and

The Quantum Theory

IN a lecture on the quantum theory it might be thought fitting to commence with a clear explanation of the purpose, nature, and scope of the subject; but an attempt to answer briefly the question,

Copenhagen vs Everett, Teleportation, and ER=EPR

Quantum gravity may have as much to tell us about the foundations and interpretation of quantum mechanics as it does about gravity. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics and Everett's

On the Problem of Hidden Variables in Quantum Mechanics

The demonstrations of von Neumann and others, that quantum mechanics does not permit a hidden variable interpretation, are reconsidered. It is shown that their essential axioms are unreasonable. It

Conditional probabilities with Dirac observables and the problem of time in quantum gravity

We combine the 'evolving constants' approach to the construction of observables in canonical quantum gravity with the Page-Wootters formulation of quantum mechanics with a relational time for

The Principles of Quantum Mechanics

IT is now twenty years since the theory of quantum mechanics was founded, and not much less since the first edition of Dirac's book was published. Ever since, it has been a classic of scientific

100 years of the quantum

As quantum theory celebrates its 100th birthday, spectacular successes are mixed with outstanding puzzles and promises of new technologies. This article reviews both the successes of quantum theory
