A Strict Epistemic Approach to Physics

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 543

Description:
Here, we derive the formalism of QM from well-motivated epistemic principles. A key assumption is that in a proper physical theory, the introduction of entities or distinctions that are unknowable in principle is in conflict with the theory.

Book cover: Quantum NonlocalityQuantum Nonlocality
by - MDPI AG
This book presents the current views on the bizarre property of quantum theory: nonlocality. The contributions in the book describe the bizarre aspects of nonlocality -- a phenomenon which cannot be explained in the framework of classical physics.

Book cover: Realism-Completeness-Universality interpretation of quantum mechanicsRealism-Completeness-Universality interpretation of quantum mechanics
by - arXiv
The book gives a consequent and mathematical formulation to the interpretation of quantum mechanics that is often met among practical physicists. The book ought to be accessible to students that finished the standard course of quantum mechanics.
