Limitations on the psi-epistemic view of quantum states
Speaker(s): Owen Maroney
Abstract: The "psi-epistemic" view is that the quantum state does not represent a state of the world, but a state of knowledge about the world.  It is motivated, in part, by the observation of qualitative similarities between characteristic properties of non-orthogonal quantum wavefunctions and b... read more

$rho$-ontism: thermodynamics and the interpretation of quantum theory
Speaker(s): Owen Maroney
Abstract: Can a density matrix be regarded as a description of the physically real properties of an individual system? If so, it may be possible to attribute the same objective significance to statistical mechanical properties, such as entropy or temperature, as to properties such as mass or energy. Non-linea... read more

Does a Computer have an Arrow of Time?
Speaker(s): Owen Maroney
Abstract: It has sometimes - though usually informally - been suggested that the psychological arrow can be reduced to the thermodynamic arrow through information processing properties of the brain. In this talk we demonstrate that this particular suggestion cannot succeed, as, insofar as information processi... read more
