PIRSA:13050059  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP4 Low Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
On the non-extendibility of quantum theory
Speaker(s): Renato Renner
Abstract: I will present a recent theorem that asserts that there cannot exist an "extension of quantum theory" that allows us to make more informative predictions about future measurable events (e.g., whether a horizontally polarized photon passes a polarization filter with a given orientation) than standard... read more

PIRSA:13050066  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP4 Low Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Phenomenology of spontaneous wave-function collapse models
Speaker(s): Angelo Bassi
Abstract: Models of spontaneous wave function collapse make predictions, which are different from those of standard quantum mechanics. Indeed, these models can be considered as a rival theory, against which the standard theory can be tested, in pretty much the same way in which parametrized post-Newtonian gra... read more

PIRSA:13050063  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP4 Low Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Ontology of collapse theories
Speaker(s): Wayne Myrvold
Abstract: The textbook collapse postulate says that, after a measurement, the quantum state of the system on which the measurement was performed , and becomes an eigenstate of the observable measured. Naively, this is what one would expect of dynamical collapse theories.  What one gets, instead, is a... read more

PIRSA:13050064  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP4 Low Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Collapse and Consequences
Speaker(s): Philip Pearle
Abstract: I shall give an introduction to conceptual ideas and equations of the CSL (Continuous Spontaneous Localization) theory of dynamical wave function collapse.  Then, I shall discuss various applications of the theory.

Path Integrals, Reality and Generalizations of Quantum Theory
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: I describe some tentative new ideas on modified versions of quantum theory motivated by the path integral formalism, and on other generalizations, and comment on possible experimental implications.
