The core activity of the group is quantum mechanics, with particular attention to its foundations: the measurement problem, the meaning of the wave function, entaglement and nonlocality, the quantum-to-classical transition, the relation between quantum theory and relativity/gravity. Active collaboations include mathematical, theoretical and experimental physicists. Read more
