Thermodynamics and Energy


Refutation of Control by Quantum Observation © Copyright 2018 by Colin James III All Rights Reserved.

Authors: Colin James III

The following is not confirmed as tautologous. "A quantum observer has zero entropy flow. Examining the entropy flow due to the local observation shows that the quantum observer does not add a new entropy flow to the system in contrast to a standard thermodynamic heat bath. Inserting [Eq. (10)] into Eq. (9) shows that the entropy flux due to the quantum observer is zero. This means that a quantum observer changes the energy flow in the system directly, without having an entropy flow connected with it."
