Abstract:

In this talk we discuss some models for emergent quantum mechanics in the line of 't Hooft's approach. After the geometric and dynamical setting is introduced, the construction of a phenomenological wave function and the Hilbert space structure is made from the fundamental elements of the models. Then we show how a geometric picture of quantum non-locality could be accommodated in these models. We will discuss a purely analytical-geometric mechanism for a spontaneous reduction of the quantum state and how this mechanism obligates to consider gravity as a classical and emergent interaction. Moreover, as a consequence of the same mechanism, the weak equivalence principle must be exact.
