    I Does Decoherence get rid of all Quantumness?

    The answer is no and even when decoherence occurs for Wigner's Friend in the lab, quantum coherence remains. Let's start with the paper that illustrates this. Assisted Macroscopic Quantumness CONT. https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.10498 Wow, I recently read this paper and the results are simply...

    Doesn't Wigner's Friend Experiment solve the measurement problem?

    If you look at the recent Wigner's Friend experiment, it seems to support Carlo Rovelli's Relational Interpretation which says there's no real measurement. Wiger's Friend carries out a polarization measurement. Before he does, the quantum system is in a superposition of horizontal/vertical...

    I Wigner's Friend shows the difference between Observer and Measurement

    You often hear this debate about the role of the observer in Quantum Mechanics. How you view this role is usually dictates the interpretation you prefer. If it's Copenhagen, then the observer is more robust and plays a crucial role in wave function collapse. If it's Many Worlds, then the...

    A Could different outcomes have different physics in Wigner's friend?

    Summary: Could different outcomes have different physics in Wigner's friend? Physicist Eugene Wigner said that consciousness was fundamental for physics and that laws of physics existed because of it. He said that "consciousness can change the usual laws of physics" He also proposed the...

    I Qbism Vs. Copenhagen

    I read a few articles about Qbism, but feel like I don't understand the difference from Copenhagen. One author claims the difference is that each observer has his own view of the world (and own probabilities in qbism). I thought that was also the case in Copenhagen. E.g. the old Wigner's...

    B Proietti 2019 experiment: Doubt in measuring A1(B1)

    Hi everyone! Sorry for the bad english! Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/1902.05080 I guess I understood the experiment until the moment Alice and Bob chooses to measure A0(B0) or A1(B1). I guess it's kind of straightforward that without a bell state measurement with photon alfa(beta) and photon...

    I Frauchiger & Renner: There's a Mistake, Right?

    Hey there! I was recently pointed to this thought experiment, claiming an apparent 'contradiction' involving the various predictions of the observers. Now, this has been discussed on PF quite recently, but I found the discussion rather hard to follow. I've read the paper, the PF discussion...
