In this episode, I discuss a paper talking about the relationship between physical entropy and information-theoretic entropy in the context of quantum communication.

May 13, 2020 07:34 PM PDT

This week, I talk about the fate of the universe in Bohmian Cosmology. Specifically, how Torres, Fabris, and Piattella use the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics to modify the Wheeler-De Witt equation in the an accelerating universe.

I talk about a paper by John Archibald Wheeler, "Information, Physics, Quantum: The Search for Links."

I talk about Quantum Bayesianism, the extension of the Bayesian interpretation of probability to quantum mechanics, through the work of Christopher Fuchs.

March 03, 2017 04:53 PM PST

Jim and Randy discuss the ways in which we interpret the wavefunction, quantum indeterminancy, and other strange things that happen in quantum mechanics -- going through nine classes of interpretation and what they mean about the underlying reasons for quantum mechanical behavior.

August 05, 2015 03:47 PM PDT

Randy and Jim discuss the implications of Schroedinger's Cat. In light of the measurement problem, in light of the collapse of the wave function, how can you understand what is happening to a quantum mechanical system?

July 02, 2015 03:05 PM PDT

Jim and Randy discuss how "compensation forces" allow measurements of non-canonical variables without the difficulties discovered in the previous episode. They also discuss why some very important concepts of classical physics -- velocity and the electric field -- are not canonical.

April 22, 2015 01:47 PM PDT

Randy and Jim talk about measurements of quantum systems, specifically in terms of a paradox involving the measurement of the velocity. This includes a long discussion of the von Neumann model of quantum mechanics.

March 25, 2015 03:05 PM PDT

Jim and Randy discuss Aharonov and Rohrlich's suggestion that quantum mechanics should be formulated in terms of axioms based upon its physical peculiarities -- Nonlocality and Causality.

February 20, 2015 03:57 PM PST

Randy and Jim discuss modular variables and how looking at an infinite number of slits in a diffraction grating can better elucidate the process of quantum interference than the two-slit experiment.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
