Causation does not explain contextuality

Quantum 2, 63 (2018).


Realist interpretations of quantum mechanics presuppose the existence of elements of reality that are independent of the actions used to reveal them. 146 more words


Can a quantum drum vibrate and stand still at the same time?

Researchers have studied how a ‘drumstick’ made of light could make a microscopic ‘drum’ vibrate and stand still at the same time.

New quantum probability rule offers novel perspective of wave function collapse

Quantum theory is based heavily on probabilities, since measuring a quantum system doesn’t produce the same outcome every time, but instead yields one of many outcomes that each occur with a certain probability. 49 more words
