The Quantum Does not Reduce to Discrete Bits

Authors: Roger Schlafly
Comments: 10 Pages. Submitted to 2013 FQXi Essay Contest

There is no way to reduce physics to information theory. Matter is not just empty space with isolated bits of information. The quantum is not digital data, logic, probability, or information. There is a long history of trying to understand the ethereal mysteries of quantum mechanics by reduction to discrete information, as if the universe were a giant ghostly digital computer without the hardware. These attempts have failed, and should be seen as evasions of the central truths of quantum mechanics. In short, there is no it from bit.

Dark Matter UFO Dust Particles or Quantum Knots in the LHC at CERN ?

Authors: Leo Vuyk
Comments: 21 Pages. 21

Quantum FFF ( Function Follows Form) theory states, that the vacuum is seeded with fast oscillating massless dual Higgs particles, coined Dark Energy of 126 GeV. recently found by the LHC at CERN. Now I try to describe the similarities between the characteristics of energetic Quantum Knots found inside Silicon discharge experiments in the laboratory and so called UFOs (Unidentified Falling Objects) described as “Dust particles” created “somehow” alongside the accelerated proton beam of the LHC, causing beam disruption and automatic beam dumps.

Energy Conservation Violation by Modulation of Coherent States

Authors: Thomas Alexander Meyer
Comments: 3 Pages.

We present a generalized account of how one might achieve energy conservation violation with quantum coherence effects. The general setup involves a violation of energy conservation by means of a change to the preparation of a coherent quantum mechanical effect which causes a change to the probability distribution of the measurable statistics of an observable. We also present a simple theoretical account of why there is a violation of conservation occurring in this setup.

A Review of the ZWM Study; What Destroys the Interference?

Authors: Thomas Alexander Meyer
Comments: 9 Pages.

In 1991-1992 three papers were published by the same authors referred to as the ZWM study concerning the subject of induced coherence in photon downconversion. We present a review of these papers which all concern the same experimental arrangement. The central conclusion made by the authors is that interference is destroyed by the in principle knowability of path, that path indistinguishability is fundamental to interference effects. We review these papers with an emphasis on validating this conclusion and attempting to understand the action that is taken in the preparation of the “idler” photon and the subsequent affect that this action has on the interference visibility of the entangled “signal” photon.

EPR Paradox Solved by Special Theory of Relativity

Authors: Justin Lee
Comments: 7 Pages.

This paper uses the special theory of relativity (SR) to introduce a novel solution to Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox. More specifically, the faster-than-light (FTL) communication is described to explain two types of EPR paradox experiments: photon polarization and electronpositron pair spins. And most importantly, this paper explains why this FTL communication does not violate the SR.

Experimental Evidence for a Non-Globally Trace-Preserving Povm

Authors: Raymond Jensen
Comments: 15 Pages.

Abstract. A well-known experiment from 1986 involving entangled pairs is examined. The data, which until now have not been modeled quantitatively, is shown not to be in agreement with the quantum measurement postulate using von Neumann projectors. On the other hand, the data agree with the postulate using a more general positive operator valued measure (POVM). The peculiarity of the POVM proposed here is that it is only conditionally a POVM; i.e. it is not complete (trace-preserving) on the entire Hilbert space but only on a subset, although the POVM elements are positive semidefinite observables on the entire space. The state vector of the aforementioned experiment is in the subset where completeness holds. An extension of the conditional POVM is then applied to a proposed experiment involving three- particle Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger (GHZ) entangled states. As with the Aspect experiment, completeness holds for the conditional POVM upon application to the GHZ state. Violation of the Bell inequality in the GHZ experiment does not occur upon application of von-Neumann projectors; however the conditional POVM allows for Bell inequality violation.

Arguments and Model for Quantum Consciousness, Modification of Quantum Collapse, and Panpsychism

Authors: Janko Kokosar
Comments: Pages.

As first, a mechanism how quantum coherence in the brain can last long enough is shown. This mechanism is based on very light elementary particles. Then the arguments follow as why consciousness should be a quantum phenomenon and how such an introduction of quantum consciousness modifies the formalism of quantum mechanics. This can also be tested by an experiment. Without use of quantum mechanics it is shown how to atomize consciousness and how to explain the Libet experiment, and why a location of feeling of consciousness is an important paradox. It is also shown that panpsychism is an answer to many questions about consciousness. The author claims that consciousness is physically so fundamental that it is not a result of some complex phenomena, but it is so fundamental as quantum physics and space-time.

What is Electron Spin?

Authors: Kamal L Rajpal
Comments: 10 pages, 6 figures

An isolated static electron in free space is not a fixed particle at rest. It is always oscillating in a SHM in its own electromagnetic inertia field, rest frame even at zero kelvin temperature. This is non-thermal, standing wave, resonance Compton frequency, oscillation along a linear path or, along an elliptical or a circular (clockwise or anti-clockwise) path which results in the electron’s intrinsic magnetic moment (spin up or spin down). An electron with spin behaves like a tiny magnet. Intrinsic spin does not imply that a subatomic particle is spinning like a toy-top about its axis. A hypothetical electron without a charge is like the bob of a simple pendulum without a string.

The New Electromagnetics From Matter Waves

Authors: Michael Harney
Comments: 6 Pages.

It is well known that Maxwell’s equations describe electromagnetics at an abstract level – no knowledge about atomic theory or quantum mechanics is required. However, this abstraction also overlooks the physical nature of how electromagnetic fields originate and it may be that our concept of charge needs to be replaced with the more fundamental concept of warped spacetime as described by Einstein, and that matter waves may be the result of all electromagnetic (and possibly gravitational) phenomena.

Our Current Concept of Locality May be Incomplete (Talk Slides)

Authors: Armin Nikkhah Shirazi
Comments: Pages.

The predictions of Bell's inequalities, and their subsequent experimental verification in the form of correlations between spacelike separated events have led to the prevailing current view that `nature is non-local'. Here we examine the possibility that our current concept of locality may at present not be sufficiently differentiated, and that by using 'nature' synonymously with `spacetime' we may have missed an implication of special relativity which by rendering a more complete conception of locality permits such quantum correlations without either hidden variables or violations of locality.

The Illusion of Light as Transverse Electromagnetic Waves

Authors: Keith D. Foote
Comments: 6 Pages. V2-minor typo corrections

The interpretation of light as transverse waves is critically examined. ‘Old information’ is updated and combined with ‘new information’ and a new model is presented. The behavior of electromagnetic waves is examined and compared with that of longitudinal sound waves. Synchrotron and Cerenkov radiation are used as supporting evidence showing light waves are not transverse in nature, and are transported by a medium.

Information – Entropy Theory of Physics

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 7 Pages.

Considering the positive logarithmic values as the measure of entropy and the negative logarithmic values as the measure of information we get the Information – Entropy Theory of Physics, used first as the model of the computer chess program built in the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Applying this model to physics we have an understanding of the perturbation theory of the QED and QCD as the Information measure of Physics. We have an insight to the current research of Quantum Information Science. The generalization of the Weak Interaction shows the arrow of time in the associate research fields of the biophysics and others. We discuss also the event horizon of the Black Holes, closing the information inside.

Asymmetry Due to Quantum Collapse (Paper)

Authors: Armin Nikkhah Shirazi
Comments: 6 Pages. This is the paper version, a poster version has also been uploaded

This paper points out an internal tension between quantum collapse and expressions which set eigenstates equal to superposition states in a different basis and thereby imply that pre-measurement and immediate post-measurement states are of the same kind. Its resolution appears to be either to discard the collapse postulate or to consider such states to be of distinct kinds with respect to their association with a superposition of properties.

The Hydrogen Atom Relativistic Model

Authors: Mourici Shachter (Shechter)
Comments: 7 Pages.

In this paper the hydrogen atom is solved using Einstein Relativity Theory without any approximation. The solution is very short and simple. What I get is the exact behaviors of the hydrogen atom including Relativity the results are not linear, so linear differential equation like Schrödinger Equation Dirac Equation or Klein Gordon Equation deliver complicate expressions. My solution is just simple and elegant. Most of the result published in the Wikipedia differ from my results and must be checked to establish the correct model
