Asymptotic theory reduction, spontaneous symmetry breaking, and the measurement problem — •Klaas Landsman — Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen
The issue of the classical/quantum divide is (re)formulated as a problem in asymptotic theory reduction. On this formulation, the measurement problem and the closely related problem of spontaneous symmetry breaking assume a particularly clear form and become well posed as mathematical problems. As such, we propose a mathematical mechanism for their solution within the confines of standard quantum mechanics. References: arXiv:1210.2353 (with R. Reuvers) and arXiv: 1305.4473.
