The Quantum Double Slit Experiment With Local Elements of Reality

  title={The Quantum Double Slit Experiment With Local Elements of Reality},
  author={Vlatko Vedral},
We present a fully local treatment of the double slit experiment in the formalism of quantum field theory. Our exposition is predominantly pedagogical in nature and exemplifies the fact that there is an entirely local description of the quantum double slit interference that does not suffer from any supposed paradoxes usually related to the wave-particle duality. The wave-particle duality indeed vanishes in favour of the field picture in which particles should not be regarded as the primary…

Are There Any Real Problems With Quantum Gravity?

We present a short, general and accessible introduction to quantizing gravity in the Heisenberg picture. We then apply this formalism to the scenario where two spatially superposed masses interact

A Simple Field Theoretic Description of Single-Photon Nonlocality

We present a simple yet rigorous field theoretic demonstration of the nonlocality of a single-photon field. The formalism used allows us to calculate the electric field of a single-photon light beam



Interference in the Heisenberg picture of quantum field theory, local elements of reality, and fermions

We describe the quantum interference of a single photon in the Mach-Zehnder interferometer using the Heisenberg picture. Our purpose is to show that the description is local just like in the case of
