The Measurement Postulates of Quantum Mechanics are Redundant
Speaker(s): Lluis Masanes
Abstract: In order to think about the foundations of physics it is important to understand the logical relationships among the physical principles that sustain the building. As part of these axioms of physics there is the core hypothesis that, how the Universe is partitioned into systems and subsystems is a s... read more

PIRSA:15050098  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
A derivation (and quantification) of the third law of thermodynamics
Speaker(s): Lluis Masanes

PIRSA:11050029  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Entanglement and the three-dimensionality of the Bloch sphere
Speaker(s): Lluis Masanes
Abstract: We consider theories that satisfy: information causality, reversibility, local discriminability, all tight effects are measurable. A property of these theories is that binary systems (with two perfectly distinguishable states and no more) have state spaces with the shape of a unit ball (the Bloch ba... read more
