Models and Tests of Quantum Theory and Gravity
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: Models that have some but not all features of standard quantum theory can be valuable in several ways, as Bell, Ghirardi-Rimini-Weber-Pearle, Hardy, Spekkens and many others have shown. One is to illuminate quantum theory and shed light on possible reaxiomatisations or reformulations. Another is... read more

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.

Quantum Tasks in Minkowski Space
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: The fundamental properties of quantum information and its applications to computing and cryptography have been greatly illuminated by considering information-theoretic tasks that are provably possible or impossible within non-relativistic quantum mechanics.  In this talk I describe a gen... read more

Relativistic Quantum (Im)Possibilities
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: Many fundamental results in quantum foundations and quantum information theory can be framed in terms of information-theoretic tasks that are provably (im)possible in quantum mechanics but not in classical mechanics. For example, Bell's theorem, the no-cloning and no-broadcasting theorems, quantum k... read more

Quantum Tagging: Authenticating Location via Quantum Information and Relativistic Signalling Constraints
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: In this talk I review some joint work (arXiv:1008.2147) with Bill Munro and Tim Spiller on the task we call "quantum tagging", that is, authenticating the classical location of a classical tagging device by sending and receiving quantum signals from suitably located distant sites, ... read more

Theory Confirmation in One World and its Failure in Many
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: I discuss how we can give a satisfactory account of theory confirmation for theories with random data, such as Copenhagen quantum theory, despite the lack of a completely satisfactory definition of probabilistic theories of nature. I also explain why neither this nor any other proposed account of sc... read more

Everett and Evolution
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: A fundamental question for Everettians is whether they can formulate a many-worlds interpretation of quantum theory which explains why, amongst all possible types of intelligent creature with all possible types of evolutionary and experimental history, we find ourselves among those whose histories a... read more

A proposed Test of the Local Casuality of Spacetime
Speaker(s): Adrian Kent
Abstract: A theory governing the metric and matter fields in spacetime is {it locally causal} if the probability distribution for the fields in any region is determined solely by physical data in its past, i.e. it is independent of events at space-like separated points. This is the case according to general... read more
