I am just curious what people think about it.

In summary, the conversation is about a paper on the Copenhagen Interpretation and its extension to encompass interacting individual systems. The authors propose a mathematical structure that resolves the paradoxes surrounding the Measurement Problem in quantum mechanics. The paper has a confusing date of 2008, which is due to the way LaTeX and arXiv work.

Suppose V is a physical system in interaction with another system W. The state vector of V+W has a set of polar decompositions with a vector q of complex coefficients. These are parameterized by the right toroid T of amplitudes q, and comprise a singular toroidal bundle over S, which comprises the enlarged state space of V+W. We prove that each T has a unique natural convex partition yielding the correct SQM probabilities. In the extended theory V and W synchronously assume pure spectral states according to which member of the partition contains q. The apparent indeterminism of SQM is thus attributable to the effectively random distribution of initial phases. "

This has a date on the paper of 2008, which is confusing because the submission history does not list a revision after 1999. I see that occasionally, not sure what it signifies exactly.

It has to do with how LaTeX and arXiv work. LaTeX prints a date corresponding to the date at which the PDF was produced from the LaTeX source. Thus, the printed date (2008 in this case) corresponds to the date at which PDF was produced from the LaTeX source. The LaTeX source itself may have been submitted to arXiv at a much earlier time.DrChinese said:This has a date on the paper of 2008, which is confusing because the submission history does not list a revision after 1999.
