Some Negative Remarks on Operational Approaches to Quantum Theory
Speaker(s): Chris Fuchs
Abstract: Over the last 10 years there has been an explosion of “operational reconstructions” of quantum theory. This is great stuff: For, through it, we come to see the myriad ways in which the quantum formalism can... read more

Quantum Bayesianism---Something Old, Something New
Speaker(s): Chris Fuchs
Abstract: Quantum Bayesianism is a point of view on quantum foundations that says that there is no such thing as a “measurement problem” because there is no such THING as a quantum state: Quantum states are not things---instead information. But the view doesn’t stop there; it sta... read more

Quantum-Bayesian Coherence (or, My Favorite Convex Set)
Speaker(s): Chris Fuchs
Abstract: In a quantum-Bayesian delineation of quantum mechanics, the Born Rule cannot be interpreted as a rule for setting measurement-outcome probabilities from an objective quantum state. (A quantum system has potentially as many quantum states as there are agents considering it.) But what then is the role... read more

Charting the Shape of Hilbert Space: A Bit of Quantum Foundations at PI
Speaker(s): Chris Fuchs
Abstract: As physicists, we have become accustomed to the idea that a theory\'s content is always most transparent when written in coordinate-free language. But sometimes the choice of a good coordinate system is very useful for settling deep conceptual issues. Think of how Eddington-Finkelstein coordinates... read more

The Physics of Information: From Entanglement to Black Holes
Abstract: Do ideas about information and reality inspire fruitful new approaches to the hardest problems of modern physics? What can we learn about the paradoxes of quantum mechanics, the beginning of the universe and our understanding of black holes by thinking about the very essence of information? The answ... read more

13 Quotes from Everettian Papers and Why They Unsettle Me
Speaker(s): Chris Fuchs
Abstract: 101 years ago William James wrote this about the Hegelian movement in philosophy: 'The absolute mind which they offer us, the mind that makes our universe by thinking it, might, for aught they show us to the contrary, have made any one of a million other universes just as well as this. You can deduc... read more
