We work in quantum mechanics and its foundations: the measurement problem, the meaning of the wave function, entaglement and nonlocality, the quantum-to-classical transition, the relation between quantum theory and relativity/gravity. Read more

Digant Tyagi, masters student at University of Trieste

In this talk I will present a non-Markovian generalisation of free particle dynamics of a quantum particle under the QMUPL model of wavefunction collapse.

Lorenzo Asprea, PhD student at University of Trieste

In this talk I will present a non relativistic model for gravitational decoherence of scalar bosonic particles. I will discuss the preferred basis and characteristic rates for the phenomenon in relevant regimes of approximation.

Caitlin Jones, PhD student at University of Trieste

Collapse models are proposed modifications of quantum mechanics aimed at solving the measurement problem. As originally formulated they are not consistent with special relativity, but there are proposals for relativistic collapse models.

Last Friday the first major meeting to of the Quatipal project took place, the meeting was titled “Towards a South-East European Quantum Network”. The aim of the Quatipal project is to plan for a international quantum internet in South-East Europe. The meeting discussed plans for such a network and the state-of-the-art for quantum communications technology. For more information see the Quapital project website.
