Quantum Trajectories: Dirac, Moyal and Bohm
We recall Dirac's early proposals to develop a description of quantum phenomena in terms of a non-commutative algebra in which he suggested a way to construct what he called quantum trajectories.
Classical and quantum mechanics via Lie algebras
The goal of this book is to present classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics in an almost completely algebraic setting, thereby introducing mathematicians, physicists, and
Jordan in The Church of The Higher Hilbert Space: Entanglement and Thermal Fluctuations
I revisit Jordan's derivation of Einstein's formula for energy fluctuations in the black body in thermal equilibrium. This formula is usually taken to represent the unification of the wave and the
Hamiltonian point of view of quantum perturbation theory
We explore the relation of Van Vleck-Primas perturbation theory of quantum mechanics with the Lie-series based perturbation theory of Hamiltonian systems in classical mechanics. In contrast to
Hilbert-Style Axiomatic Completion: The (Not So) Hidden Contextuality of von Neumann’s “No Hidden Variables” Theorem
Von Neumann’s (in)famous proof of the non-existence of hidden variables in quantum mechanics is commonly discussed in the context of work that came much later, namely that of Bohm and Bell. In this
Russell’s 1927 The Analysis of Matter as the First Book on Quantum Gravity
The goal of this note is to bring into wider attention the often neglected important work by Bertrand Russell on the foundations of physics published in the late 1920s. In particular, we emphasize
The Relational Interpretation
The relational interpretation (or RQM, for Relational Quantum Mechanics) solves the measurement problem by considering an ontology of sparse relative facts. Facts are realized in interactions between
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
Non-asymptotic quantum metrology : extracting maximum information from limited data
TLDR
The results provide a detailed characterisation of how the interplay between prior information, entanglement and a limited amount of data affects the performance of quantum metrology protocols, which has important implications for the analysis of theory and experiments in this field.
