Entanglement swapping in the transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics
The transactional interpretation (TI) of quantum mechanics, which uses retarded and advanced solutions of the Schrodinger equation and its complex conjugate, offers an original way to visualize and
Causal Symmetry and the Transactional Interpretation
Cramer's (1986) transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics posits retrocausal influences in quantum processes in an attempt to alleviate some of the interpretational difficulties of the
Quantum measurements as weighted symmetry breaking processes: the hidden measurement perspective
The purpose of the present note is twofold. Firstly, we highlight the similarities between the ontologies of Kastner's possibilist transactional interpretation (PTI) of quantum mechanics - an
Why Everettians Should Appreciate the Transactional Interpretation
The attractive feature of the Everett approach is its admirable spirit of approaching the quantum puzzle with a Zen-like "beginner’s mind" in order to try to envision what the pure formalism might be
The Possibilist Transactional Interpretation and Relativity
A recent ontological variant of Cramer’s Transactional Interpretation, called “Possibilist Transactional Interpretation” or PTI, is extended to the relativistic domain. The present interpretation
Absorbers in the Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
The transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics, following the time-symmetric formulation of electrodynamics, uses retarded and advanced solutions of the Schrödinger equation and its complex
Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics
Decoherence is like capitalism. Its proponents regard it as obvious, given human nature, and its success seems overwhelming. Competitors largely belong to the past, or get the impression they do.
If Physics Is an Information Science, What Is an Observer?
TLDR
The consequences of replacing an informationally-impoverished observer with an observer that satisfies the requirements of classical automata theory is investigated, showing that with reasonable assumptions about the physical dynamics of information channels, the observations recorded by such an observer will display the typical characteristics predicted by quantum theory.
Interaction-Free Effects Between Distant Atoms
TLDR
A Gedanken experiment is presented where an excited and a ground-state atom are positioned such that, within the former’s half-life time, they exchange a photon with 50% probability, and the result is apparently precluding entanglement, which gives rise to the Quantum Zeno effect.

Multiple Interaction‐Free Measurement as a Challenge to the Transactional Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics
Cramer’s analysis of interaction‐free measurement in terms of his Transactional Interpretation is critically reviewed. Next we attempt to apply it to some varieties of IFM that have been devised
Cramer’s Transactional Interpretation and Causal Loop Problems
TLDR
An alternative solution is proposed in which Maudlin’s charge of inconsistency is evaded but at no cost of empirical content on the part of TI.
A Transactional Analysis of Interaction-Free Measurements
The transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics is applied to the “interaction-free” measurement scenario of Elitzur and Vaidman and to the Quantum Zeno effect version of the measurement

Quantum non-locality and relativity
It is sometimes stated that composite quantum systems in entangled states are fundamentally ‘non-local’(i.e. a measurement on one component system can affect a spacelike separated system

It is frequently argued that there is a tension between quantum theory and the special theory of relativity, but there are no conclusive arguments for their incompatibility. In this paper I consider

In a few crucial passages in the history of physics, seemingly unrelated riddles turned out to merely reflect different facets of the same phenomenon. Such, we submit, may be the lot of the quantum
