# The mathematical basis for deterministic quantum mechanics

@inproceedings{Hooft2006TheMB, title={The mathematical basis for deterministic quantum mechanics}, author={Gerard 't Hooft}, year={2006} }

If there exists a classical, i.e. deterministic theory underlying quantum
mechanics, an explanation must be found of the fact that the Hamiltonian,
which is defined to be the operator that generates evolution in time, is bounded
from below. The mechanism that can produce exactly such a constraint is
identified in this paper. It is the fact that not all classical data are registered
in the quantum description. Large sets of values of these data are assumed to
be indistinguishable, forming…

Quantum Mechanics from Classical Logic

- Physics
- 2012

Although quantum mechanics is generally considered to be fundamentally incompatible with classical logic, it is argued here that the gap is not as great as it seems. Any classical, discrete, time…

Does quantum mechanics tell an atomistic spacetime

- Physics
- 2009

The canonical answer to the question posed is "Yes." – tacitly assuming that quantum theory and the concept of spacetime are to be unified by 'quantizing' a theory of gravitation. Yet, instead, one…

Dynamic systems with quantum behaviour

- Physics
- 2009

It is argued that the world is a dissipative dynamic system, a phase flow of which is formed by conformally-symplectic mapping. The key assumption is that the concept of energy in microcosm makes…

Entangled quantum states in a local deterministic theory

- Physics
- 2009

Investigating a class of models that is familiar in studies of cellular automata, we find that quantum operators can be employed to describe their long distance behavior. These operators span a…

Symmetry aspects in emergent quantum mechanics

- Physics

We discuss an explicit realization of the dissipative dynamics anticipated in the proof of 't Hooft's existence theorem, which states that 'For any quantum system there exists at least one…

Quantum enigma hidden in continuum mechanics

- Physics

It is reported that there exist deformable media which display quantum effects just as quantum entities do. As such, each quantum entity usually treated as a point particle may be represented by a…

Causality and local determinism versus quantum nonlocality

The entanglement and the violation of Bell and CHSH inequalities in spin polarization correlation experiments (SPCE) is considered to be one of the biggest mysteries of Nature and is called quantum…
