PURE QUANTUM INTERPRETATIONS ARE NOT VIABLE

"... Abstract. Pure interpretations of quantum theory, which reject the classical part of the Copenhagen interpretation without adding new structure to it’s quantum part, are not viable. This is a consequence of a nonuniqueness result for the canonical operators. 1. Introduction: The ..."

The ANSISPARC architecture was proposed as a hierarchical model for the implementation of Database Management Systems (DBMS). A separation of external user views and shared base relations (conceptual schema) constitutes their logical independence, i.e., external views are immune to changes of the conceptual schema. Moreover, users can customize their views independent of the conceptual schema. However, all updates to a base relation should be immediately reflected in all views that reference the base relation. Vice versa, if a view is updated, then the underlying base relation should reflect the change. Keeping views and base relations in sync came to be known as the viewupdate problem. This paper argues that view updates require the user to cause a change. Prior to a view update user and view are entangled. Entangled states cannot be reduced to factual states of user and base relation. It will be shown that the viewupdate problem arises due to a view update (causation) being irreducible to a functional mapping between base relation and view (causality).
Coupling quantum interpretative techniques: Another look at chemical mechanisms in organic reactions
 Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation
, 2012
"... ABSTRACT: A cross ELF/NCI analysis is tested over prototypical organic reactions. The synergetic use of ELF and NCI enables the understanding of reaction mechanisms since each method can respectively identify regions of strong and weak electron pairing. Chemically intuitive results are recovered and ..."

that bonds do not appear in the Hamiltonian. Thus, interpretative tools are necessary to recover chemical structure and reactivity and more specifically to understand the process of bond formation and bond breaking
A path integral approach to the Kontsevich quantization formula
, 1999
"... We give a quantum field theory interpretation of Kontsevich’s deformation quantization formula for Poisson manifolds. We show that it is given by the perturbative expansion of the path integral of a simple topological bosonic open string theory. Its Batalin–Vilkovisky quantization yields a supercon ..."

From quantum cellular automata to quantum lattice gases
 Journal of Statistical Physics
, 1996
"... A natural architecture for nanoscale quantum computation is that of a quantum cellular automaton. Motivated by this observation, in this paper we begin an investigation of exactly unitary cellular automata. After proving that there can be no nontrivial, homogeneous, local, unitary, scalar cellular a ..."

The Zitterbewegung interpretation of quantum mechanics
 Found. Phys
, 1990
"... Abstract. The zitterbewegung is a local circulatory motion of the electron presumed to be the basis of the electron spin and magnetic moment. A reformulation of the Dirac theory shows that the zitterbewegung need not be attributed to interference between positive and negative energy states as origin ..."

Moreover, it extends to a coherent physical interpretation of the entire Dirac theory, and it implies a zitterbewegung interpretation for the Schroedinger
