Wavefunction collapse and special relativity
Monday, July 15, 2019
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. In this talk, one such proposal will be explained and it will be shown that this model is ruled out for identical or interacting particles.
