No qualms about quantum theory

Prof. Dr. Berge Englert (National University of Singapore)

Datum:  30.05.2016 17:15 Uhr – 18:30 Uhr

Ort: Hörsaal H 030, Fakultät für Physik der LMU, Schellingstraße 4, München

Quantum theory is a well-defined local theory with a clear interpretation. No ‘‘measurement problem’’ or any other foundational matters are waiting to be settled. The answers to questions such as

  • What is a physical theory?
  • What are the preexisting concepts in quantum theory?
  • Probabilities for what?
  • What is state reduction? Do wave functions collapse?
  • Is there instant action at a distant?
  • Is quantum theory nonlocal?
  • Where is Heisenberg’s cut?
  • How many interpretations do we need?
  • Is there a measurement problem?

demonstrate the case.
