We work in quantum mechanics and 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. Read more

Dr. Marco Oppio (PhD)

In principle, the lattice of elementary propositions of a generic quantum system admits a representation in real, complex or quaternionic Hilbert spaces as established by Solèr’s theorem (1995) closing a long-standing problem that can be traced back to the von Neumann’s mathematical formulation of q

Giorgio Torrieri (Researcher, Istituto de Fisica Gleb Wataghin, DRCC, IFGW)

The idea that the Unruh effect has a role in the apparent thermalization of systems produced in hadronic collisions has gained quite a lot of popularity in the last few years [1].

The workshop will gather young researchers working in quantum mechanics: PhD students and PostDocs from local and nearby institutes will present their research activity. The talks will be pedagogical and easily accessible to master students.

Andrea Vinante (Researcher, University of Southampton)

A breakdown of the quantum superposition principle at macroscopic scale, possibly induced by gravity, would allow to solve at the same time the quantum measurement problem and the apparent contradiction between quantum mechanics and gravity.
