#### The role of symmetry in the interpretation of **quantum** **mechanics**

(Institute for Scientific Methodology, 2015-12)

Despite the impressive amount of literature on the foundations of quantum mechanics, the relevance of symmetry in interpretation is not properly acknowledged. In fact, although it is usually said that quantum mechanics is ...

#### Is **quantum** **mechanics** really timeless?

(Nova Science Publishers, 2019)

In this paper, I shall put into question a widely-held claim in the discussion on the arrow of time in quantum mechanics: since the Schrödinger equation is evidently time-reversal invariant, there is no room for a fundamental ...

#### A formal framework for the study of the notion of undefined particle number in **quantum** **mechanics**

(Springer, 2015-01)

It is usually stated that quantum mechanics presents problems with the identity of particles, the most radical position—supported by E. Schrödinger—asserting that elementary particles are not individuals. But the subject ...

#### Thermodynamics and Steady State of **Quantum** Motors and Pumps Far from Equilibrium

(MDPI, 2019-08-23)

In this article, we briefly review the dynamical and thermodynamical aspects of different forms of quantum motors and quantum pumps. We then extend previous results to provide new theoretical tools for a systematic study ...

#### Entropic relations for retrodicted **quantum** measurements

(American Physical Society, 2018-01)

Given an arbitrary measurement over a system of interest, the outcome of a posterior measurement can be used for improving the statistical estimation of the system state after the former measurement. Here, we realize an ...

#### A variational formulation for relativistic **mechanics** based on Riemannian geometry and its application to the **quantum** **mechanics** context

(Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, 2018)

#### The Paraconsistent Logic of **Quantum** Superpositions

(Springer, 2013-07)

Physical superpositions exist both in classical and in quantum physics. However, what is exactly meant by 'superposition' in each case is extremely different. In this paper we discuss some of the multiple interpretations ...

#### A new chapter in the problem of the reduction of chemistry to physics: The **Quantum** Theory of Atoms in Molecules

(Springer, 2019-01)

The problem of the reduction of chemistry to physics has been traditionally addressed in terms of classical structural chemistry and standard quantum mechanics. In this work, we will study the problem from the perspective ...

#### Modal interpretations of **quantum** **mechanics**

(Stanford University, 2017-01)

The original "modal interpretation" of non-relativistic quantum theory was born in the early 1970s, and at that time the phrase referred to a single interpretation. The phrase now encompasses a class of interpretations, ...

#### Probabilities for time-dependent properties in classical and **quantum** **mechanics**

(American Physical Society, 2013-05)

We present a formalism which allows one to define probabilities for expressions that involve properties at different times for classical and quantum systems and we study its lattice structure. The formalism is based on the ...
