In sequential weak measurements with post-selection, a new anomaly occurs, different from the weak value anomaly in single weak measurements. Krzysztof Kula marked it as to-read May 03, I consider trivial post-selection, i. Maxim marked it as to-read Mar 11, Ming marked it as to-read Jan 16, Does time-symmetry imply retrocausality? In this talk, I will present new work exploring our ability to distinguish the forward from the time-reverse measurement records of continuous quantum measurements.

We will present a single qubit prepare and measure QKD protocol that uses observation of anomalous weak values of particular observables to estimate the quantum channel error rate and certify the security of the channel.

Yuji Hasegawa, Vienna University of Technology Quantum paradoxes emerging in matter-wave interferometer experiments. Only when augmented with a final quantum state, which can be understood as propagating backwards in time, a richer, more complete picture of quantum reality is portrayed. Spekkens presented a generalization of noncontextuality that applies to imperfect measurements POVMs by allowing the underlying ontological model to be indeterministic.

Reality always requires the dynamics of interaction, and hbar is an absolute limitation of physical reality. Time permitting, I will also describe other future and past work using “weak measurement,” such as our studies quantifying the disturbance due to a measurement and what happens when it destroys interference; and our project to measure “where a particle has been” as it tunnels through a classically forbidden region — our prediction being that it will make it from one side of the barrier to the other without spending any significant time in the middle.

Yakir AharonovChapman University. I will present our recent experimental work using electromagnetically induced transparency in laser-cooled atoms to measure the nonlinear phase shift created by a single post-selected photon, and its enhancement through “weak-value amplification. A representative example haaronov this fundamental relation between classical dynamics and quantum coherence is the multi-photon interference in two-path interferometers, where the multi-photon interference fringes can be explained by the action enclosed by two classical orbits corresponding pardaoxes the input and output photon number states.

Andrew BriggsUniversity of Oxford The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Curiosity Curiosity about how the world works can lead to beneficial progress in technology, and vice-versa. Nevertheless, we argue that the physical meaning paardoxes the weak value is much more close to the physical meaning of an eigenvalue aharoonv to the physical meaning of an expectation value. We construct an infinite sequence of higher order topological actions and argue that they play a role in quantum mechanics, and hence can be accessed experimentally.

This time-symmetric view leads to a subtle kind of a local hidden-variables theory, where true collapse never occurs, yet can be effectively observed.

David marked it as to-read Jul 31, We have achieved this using a linear Paul trap and a quantum tunneling rotor, which has resulted in the successful observation of the Aharonov—Bohm effect in tunneling particles.

Quantum Theory for the Perplexed” is an exclusively rare and inspirational book on quantum mechanics that explores the never-ending mysterious quantum paradoxes to bring the readers to the QuantumWonderland.

Since the same action also appears in classical descriptions of the dynamics suantum is possible to derive quantum states and their time evolution directly from the classical equations of motion, without the abstractions of operator algebra. One may imagine three approximate solutions to the exact dynamics, where two of the three entities do not interact at all, and the third, quantized, entity interacts with a classical approximation.

The assumption that the forward evolving polarization vector is a beable is an assumption of the reality of the quantum state. Quantum tunneling is one such phenomenon that is essential quatnum a number of devices that are now taken for granted. Stacey marked it as to-read Jul 30, We show that the resulting quantum operation can be exploited to implement an entanglement purification protocol, where a fidelity larger than one half with respect to any Bell state is not a necessary condition.

In this brief talk we will show how weak values appear in a wide range of physical contexts beyond the usual context of weak measurements. In case of the expectation value, there is an additional change in the quantum state of the same order, while in the case quantuj the weak value the additional distortion is negligible.

Recently, a new counter-intuitive phenomenon, called quantum Cheshire-cat, is observed in a neutron interferometer experiment. How specific counterfactual paradoxes in pre- and post-selected Kochen-Specker ahzronov give rise to experimentally observable consequences. I will present the case with and without postselection on the final state, and connect the issue to a similar topic in nonequilibrium statistical physics.
